Three months ago twelve year old Alma moved to the town of Four Points Her panic attacks started a week later and they haven’t stopped even though she told her parents that they did Every day she feels less and less like herself Then Alma meets the ShopKeeper in the town's junk shop The Fifth. uintessenceBy Jess RedmanWow I am not one to be without words but I couldn t actually speak for a while after I finished this book It could be because I stayed up until three in the morning to finish it but it is because I was blown away by how wonderful this story was I can t help but think I am so very fortunate to be among the first to experience this delightful gift Jess Redman has crafted a fantasy tale for the ages and I don t think it s too much to say that children will be reading this for many years to come Alma has moved from her beloved home a place that was familiar and cozy to a new town Four Points which is hard and cold and NOT home She begins experiencing panic attacks and anxiety related to the move and she retreats into herself and away from her family The way she writes this element of Alma s life is brilliant As a parent of a child with anxiety and someone who deals with it to a certain extent I can say she TOTALLY nailed itright down to the fumbling response of her worried parents Anyone who has ever dealt with anxiety will see in Alma a kindred spiritThrough a series of mysterious encounters and coincendences Alma finds herself in the school s Astronomy club with Hugo the uiet gifted student Shirin the popular girl and Dustin the loudmouth bully It soon becomes clear that the mission of this club is than studying the starsthey have to save one and fastI think this book is right up there with The Wizard of Oz and The Chronicles Of Narnia for spinning a tale of another world beyond our own and showing readers that the true magic is within us all This is a long book but readers will not be able to put it down I highly and I mean HIGHLY recommend this book for readers from 4th grade on up lovers of fantasy readers with anxiety and anyone who enjoys a fantastical tale of the uintessence in us all
