Weather Warden extraordinaire Joanne Baldwin, who protects the human race from monster storms, was killed, reborn as a Djinn, and then restored to her original form. She’s been through a lot – and stuck her neck out many times – to save innocent lives. Now she’s rolling the dice to stop an infinitely powerful, deeply disturbed kid from destroying the world… A teenager has holed up in style at a Las Vegas hotel with the most powerful Djinn in the world, planning who knows what type of mischief. The Wardens’ senior leadership is dead, Djinn are disappearing, and a secret society wants to help Joanne destroy the teenager, even if doing so kills her again. But everybody in Vegas has a game going, and Joanne has to learn the rules fast because the stakes have never been higher – and all hell is about to break loose.
‘Son,’ Mr P said, ‘you’re going to find more and more hope the farther and farther you walk away from this sad, sad, sad reservation.’ So Junior, who is already beaten up regularly for being a skinny kid in glasses, goes to the rich white school miles away. Now he’s a target there as well. How he survives all this is an absolute must-read and a triumph of the human spirit.

Pondering these, and other modern dilemmas, Bridget Jones stumbles through the challenges of single-motherhood, tweeting, texting and rediscovering her sexuality in what SOME people rudely and outdatedly call ‘middle age’.
