y separately published work icon Undine Penni Russon , Milsons Point : Random House , 2004 Z1141816 2004 single work novel young adult fantasy 'Undine isnt your ordinary teenage girl. She doesnt like Tuesdays, has a best friend named Trout, and can cause storms to form out of thin air. She comes from a tight-knit family that includes her mother, brother, and aunt. She has always been told that her father died before she was born but a mysterious whispering voice convinces her that he is still alive. Trout, thanks to his love of Shakespeare, links the words that the voice is speaking with The Tempest. After the book itself appears in her house, Undine figures out where the voice is calling from and goes to meet her father. Teens will empathize with this girl who has magical powers that she cant control and a desire for a father who loves her for herself, not the powers she possesses or what he can gain from them'.

'Trout walks the streets at night, obsessing over Undine and the events in the Bay, haunted by the image of his own death. In his search for answers he is drawn back to the chaosphere and to Max, who may hold the key to Undine's magic. But can he trust the mysterious Max? Undine promised her mother that she won't use her magic in her final year of school, but her father, Prospero, thinks her promise is dangerous. Against the idyllic background of Corfu, home of her father's ancestors, conflict rages inside her and Undine must answer the most important question of all: is she the magic, or is she the girl?'

'Undine thinks she could be happy living in a world where Stephen is still alive. Back in the real world, Trout could be happy too - as long as he doesn't think about Undine's disappearance, or why her shadow appears in his photographs. Phoenix is new in town, a drifter, passing through with his conjuring tricks. But they can't keep drifting forever, and one hot summer night their worlds collide. Coincidence or confluence? Illusion or reality? Trout isn't sure he wants an answer and Phoenix isn't telling. All Undine knows is that she must find a way to return home. Someone is calling her name. Sister, come to me...

'In the spellbinding conclusion to the Undine trilogy, the girl and the magic must become one to quell the darkness forever.' (Publication summary)
