In this riveting debut, a telepathic girl must figure out why she is the key to her brand-new world—before the wrong person finds the answer first.

Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. And Sophie has a secret—she’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she’s not alone. He’s a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, well…she isn’t. Fitz opens Sophie’s eyes to a shocking truth, and almost instantly she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known.
     But Sophie still has secrets, and they’re buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high-demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or death—and time is running out.

This book is awesome, and I am on book seven. So far this series has had so many twists, and it is now one of my favorite books! Since I read it electronically, when I actually saw a paperback copy, I was surprised at how long it actually was. :) I hope you like it as much as I do!

I really love the Keeper of the Lost Cities series! I am now on the 9th book. Shannon Messenger wrote Stellarlune really recently so I have to wait a long time until book ten comes out........

This book is the best book ever! Five stars! There is so much action, adventure, fun, and humor! Go team Keefe!

This is my favourite book ever! Its so adventurous and mysterious!

The book is incredibly well written, and it's an incredible story! My favorite character is Keefe Scencen (Team Keefe!). I love the book, and it's characters. The rest of the series in amazing as well!

Sophie Foster has lived in a human world with telepathic abilities ever since she was five. But when a mysterious boy shows up on a field trip, and shows her a whole new world, where there are people like her, she is torn between wanting to stay with her human family or finally being accepted. Sophie discovers new things that she never believed were possible, that defy even Elvin reality. But Sophie has secrets buried in her mind, that people would do anything for, even kill. This book was extremely exciting, and it was impossible to turn the pages fast enough. I really enjoyed this wonderful, fast-paced book that created new worlds that were complex, beautiful, and fun to read about. I loved this story, especially the part where Fitz reveals a new incredible world, that changes the way she sees things. I absolutely recommend this book if you are into mystery/fantasy, or a thrilling book, that will make you look forward to reading it every day.

It starts with a girl named sophie foster in the museum then a boy named fitz vacker comes and tells her that she's an elf. Then he takes her to the lost cities where she goes on lots of adventures and almost dies. I hope you enjoy it!

Literally the best book ever!!! I'm so excited for Stellarlune to come out. I finished the entire series a while ago and now I'm re-reading it. I'm also excited for a movie trailer. If they have an open casting call, I'm auditioning! :D

Agreed! Have you seen the cover for Stellarlune? Maruca and Marella are on the cover!

I do agree

This is the type of book I like

This is a great book and the whole series has a lot of potential. I genuinely enjoyed reading this, and the characters are so relatable and funny!
