Valora Rigmore understands pressure. As the Chosen One (resident
telekinetic, superstar and model girlfriend) her life revolves around it.
According to an ancient prophesy, Valora is destined
to fight Erys, a terrifying individual with the power to control
monsters. Valora is worshipped at school, in the press and by her
parents, but as the battle with Erys looms near, the
cracks in her perfect fa ade are beginning to show.
Her twin, Grier Rigmore understands disappointment. A curvy bookworm
perpetually in the shadow of her sister's legacy, Grier's
life is one long humiliation after another. However, as Valora's fandom
reaches an unbearable fever pitch, an interesting new boy and a clever
teacher spark Grier's curiosity about her own powerful gifts.
When Grier's star begins to rise, so do more questions: like who is truly the
Chosen One, and will two sisters at odds survive long enough to
understand the answer?
Best described as Harry Potter meets Mindy Kaling, Sister of the Chosen
One is a darkly funny, female empowered YA epic about siblings
struggling to connect with each other, free themselves of labels and
save the world in the process.
