(The second book in the Playgroup series)

But together they had powers that seemed to defy the very laws of nature. Maybe for good - maybe for evil. Jill couldn't take a chance. She and Daisy moved to upper Westchester County in New York. It's big enough to have a first-run movie house and a wonderful bookstore, and small enough to feel safe. For a while. Daisy is eight now. She's a great reader, budding novelist, and computer whiz,m so of course she's dismayed when she begins to have trouble reading. Some kids think of glasses as a status symbol - not Daisy.
