thunderstoneMeet Author Barb Pietron, author of the new Teen book Thunderstone

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.
