Local Charms


Title: Charms
By: Leslie Calderoni

I'm really excited that we were able to get Charms, the first book of local author Leslie Calderoni’s Tempest Trinity trilogy, onto the shelves at the Santa Cruz Public Libraries.

Set in Santa Cruz, Charms takes us to favorite spots like Marini's (Martini's in the book), bonfires on the beach, and cruising along West Cliff. The main characters are three sisters, Emerald, Mia and Terra. Respectively, they can: manipulate the laws of physics to control time; talk to people that are no longer living; and manipulate the string vibrations that make up the universe. These young women work hard and have fun as their summer begins to really pick up speed with two out-of-town hotties and a surprising gift from a friend. With its themes of Girl Power and family bonds, and its lack of bad language and violence, Charms is a fun book for a wide age range, though its focus audience is teens.
