It started with an argument. Seven middle schoolers who refused to get along. It began with an intervention. Seven middle schoolers who grudgingly got along. It was caused by an attack. Seven middle schoolers with a cause in common. Seven middle schoolers that wanted to do right. Seven middle schoolers that became the best of friends. It continued with a fight, a struggle, determination to do something. To fix something. It ended with an injury. It ended with a trip to the hospital. And it ended forever. Then it began again. A kidnapping. Six high schoolers who keep to themselves. Another, and another, and another, and another. Two high schoolers that didn't know what to do. Finally one was left. One high schooler that wanted nothing to do with it, one high schooler that just wanted her scholarship. One high schooler that's being dragged back into a mess she left a lifetime ago. Zoë Nightshade just wanted to Reach for the Stars. But with the way things have been going lately, she doubts she'll be able to leave her past alone any longer. *** I own nothing, just the plot. Rick Riordan owns all characters and personalities.
