Sneaking out at night, driving without a license, and falling for a guy weren't things fifteen-year-old Jeni expected to do while visiting Lake Itasca, Minnesota with her family. The guy, Ice, turns out to be the local medicine man's apprentice, and when he tells Jeni she's connected to the spirit world, her first instinct is to run. But after Ice's stories of a mythical underwater monster - that Jeni allegedly released - prove true, she realizes it's up to her to contain the beast. Jeni must first convince herself that she's able, and then save the locals, Ice, and ultimately herself. "...well-written and entertaining... Jeni makes for a likeable protagonist that readers will identify with." - Publishers Weekly

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A fun read Thunderstone” is about Jeni, a fifteen year old girl who visits Lake Itasca during a family vacation. As a souvenir, she decides to buy a weird statue of a cat with horns. As soon as she buys it, a guy tries to buy it from her and she refuses. Soon, she realizes that this statue might be dangerous. What I liked the most about this book is learning about the Native American folklore throughout the story. I think it is very interesting and unique because it is the first one that I read that talks about this type of mythology. Also, even though there is romance in the story, it is not too overwhelming and the author still focuses on the plot of the actual story, which is great. Sometimes, I feel like authors only focus on the love story when there is so much more that could be developed and that annoys me. In conclusion, if you like mythology and action, I recommend this book to you. :)
