Lisa recommends "Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos"
Take a little historical fiction and add a dash of mystery and fantasy and you will have Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos. Theodosia has the unique talent of feeling curses that have been left on really old objects, which she must remove through trial and error. This is a bit of a problem since her parents work at a museum with lots of really old objects. When her mom brings back an Egyptian amulet, she unknowingly unleashes chaos throughout England. It is up to Theodosia to return the amulet to Ancient Egypt and save the day. If you are eagerly awaiting the next Indiana Jones movie or are just looking for something a bit different, this book is for you.
