About the book:
What if there was a 13th zodiac sign? 

You’re no longer Sagittarius, but Ophiuchus, the healer, the 13th sign. 

Your personality has changed. So has your mom’s and your best friend’s. 

What about the rest of the world? 

What if you were the one who accidentally unlocked the 13th sign, causing this world-altering change, and infuriating the other 12 signs?  

Jalen did it, and now she must use every ounce of her strength and cunning to send the signs back where they belong. Lives, including her own, depend upon it.

THE 13th SIGN is a retelling of the twelve labors of Hercules, so a nice fit with a classics unit. Kirkus called it “the ultimate astrological fantasy.” Booklist recommends THE 13th SIGN for grades 5 – 8.

Thank you, friends! Good luck!
