Tall skinny Jackie is a fresh high school graduate, still in her cap and gown when she is given the keys to her grandfather's 1968 Ford Fairlane 500 Fastback 390. Jackie, her 25-year-old Aunt Misty, and her dog Roadkill jump in the car and take off following an old fashioned TripTik map into an alternate dimension. In this parallel universe, Jackie is a Warrior Wizard encountering robbers, mountain monsters, ogres, rival clans, obstreperous customs officials, a stowaway princess, an adopted bobcat kitten, werewolves, ghosts, giants, and dragons—all on her way to rescuing the Sovereign's kidnapped son. As she travels, she discovers her magic powers, and the powers of all the weapons she carries—her cap and gown, honor cords, stole, basketball, and things she picks up along the way—including a pocketful of magic beans.
This “fractured fairy tale” takes place in a folk tale reality where you’ll almost recognize the world we live in and fairy tales you read as a child—monsters, ogres, giants, werewolves, and ghosts! Oh, my!

I enjoyed this book. The joy of the various characters were very well done. The author's imagination was also great.
I would love a sequel.
