Choose Your Weapon
 

Authored by Sarah Rodriguez Pratt
Edition: 1

"Rodriguez Pratt's skilled writing ranges from snappy, believable dialogue to evocative descriptions...A well-written, intelligent, exciting choice for readers looking to get hooked on a new fantasy series." -- Kirkus Reviews

Helen dreads every day at her high school. The other kids call the quiet, overweight Latina sophomore a nerd-if they notice her at all. Her boyfriend prefers LARPing to hanging out with her. Her best friend wants to ditch her for the popular crowd. If only she'd become a Glorious Dragonfighter four years ago in the magical world from her favorite fantasy books. Too bad her sorceress friend-the one who first brought her over to the beautiful land of Erwingdon-mysteriously abandoned her.

But when Helen suddenly receives a second chance to become a Dragonfighter, nothing can ruin her happiness-until she has to train with two arrogant jocks and a bitter "weirdo" from her school. The teens struggle to find common ground in the grassy Erwingdonian hills...and pretend not to know each other in the gossipy school hallways. And when catastrophe strikes, Helen must discover who her true friends are-because the only thing more dangerous than a dragon is betrayal.

Part "The Lord of the Rings," part "The Breakfast Club," the first story in the exciting, fast-paced Helen of Hollingsworth trilogy will delight teen and adult readers.
