Bren Mickler wishes for a simpler route to the future, so she has her palm read at the county fair. Soon Bren decides to give fortune-telling, horoscopes, and even superstitions a shot. The TodaysGirls show her the futility, fraud, or worse, but Bren jumps in with both feet. Relying on the help of Internet psychics, Bren tries her hand at fortune telling, and when her predictions don't come true, she tries to make them come true. It takes an ingenious team effort by the TodaysGirls to bring Bren back to her senses. And Bren will come closer to understanding that only God knows the future; it's best left in His hands.

Like Lily, the TodaysGirls.com series debuted last year, and its popular Web site has boosted attention for the books. The six heroines (they take turns starring in the different installments) are techno-savvy and chat on-line, and each hosts a different part of their shared (fictional) Web site. The stories here run more toward moral lessons than do those of the other titles reviewed here. In this installment, Bren, the fashion-loving cheerleader, dives into newspaper horoscopes and toys that tell fortunes, to the dismay of Amber, who has a ready supply of Psalms from which to quote. Resolutions tend to be black-and-white: all of Bren's predictions backfire and her interest is utterly quashed, but Amber and the others are happy to embrace her once more. Ages 9-12. (Aug.)
