The 13th Sign by Kristin O’Donnell Tubb
Posted by Krystal Larson at 1:47 AM Thursday, January 10, 2013
What if there was a 13th zodiac sign?
You’re no longer Sagittarius, but Ophiuchus, the healer, the 13th sign.
Your personality has changed. So has your mom’s and your best friend’s.
What about the rest of the world?
What if you were the one who accidentally unlocked the 13th sign, causing this world-altering change—and infuriating the other 12 signs?
Jalen did it, and now she must use every ounce of her strength and cunning to send the signs back where they belong. Lives, including her own, depend on it.
This book was a pleasant surprise for me because I do not normally read books meant for younger audiences. I expected a much darker novel and almost felt duped by the cover when I first started reading. Despite my initial doubts, I enjoyed learning about the zodiac as I read.
In Jalen’s world, the zodiac determines your personality. After Jalen accidentally released the 13th sign, Ophiuchus, she changed the personalities of everyone she knew. It is now her responsibility to restore the zodiac. Jalen is challenged and tricked throughout her adventure and must learn to use everything she has to succeed.
I have read more exciting novels than this one, but think that Jalen was a strong character, overall. The supporting characters were not as memorable for me, but this is probably a result of the personality changes. Inconsistent characters are less distinctive and I have a harder time connecting with them. However, the plot was phenomenal, I can’t think of any other book pulling together such a unique plot line.
The 13th Sign is a great book for children between the ages of 10-13. This audience would enjoy the action and plot line. I give the novel 3.5 out of 5 stars.
3 1/2 Stars
