DescriptionKora is a powerful genie sent away against her will. Her homeland is threatened and she's been banished to earth for her own safety.
David's life is in chaos and Kora might be just what he needs. But commanding a genie is notoriously tricky — especially when she's also an angry teenage girl.
Unable to move more than 100 metres apart, and with their loved ones in danger, Kora and David must learn that the best way of helping themselves is to first help each other.
ReviewLAMONT STANDING ORDER PRIMARY FICTION BOOK OF THE MONTH - OCTOBER 2013!
When I saw the title of Shimmer and realised Kora was a genie, I expected this book to be very feminine — but it’s not.
David, the main character, lives in outback Australia and discovers having a genie is not all that easy. As they argue and test each other out, they soon realise they have more in common that they first thought, and that they might be better off working together to solve their problems.
Some exciting fight scenes, and a mystery regarding David’s Dad, make this a thoroughly enjoyable read for both boys and girls in senior primary levels.
