The Thirteenth Unicorn - W.D. Newman
The Thirteenth Unicorn is free for the kindle. This novel is the first in the Ben Alderman series. This is a fantasy book for children or young adults. Old adults should like it too. I did. Ben Alderman is a 7th grader living in Georgia. Ben is small for his age, and he uses an inhaler for his asthma, but he's a smart kid. Ben's Mom had been in a coma for two years. Ben's Dad had to take Ben and his older sister Casey to South Carolina for the summer. The kids were going to stay with their grandparents while their Dad worked on a project in Chicago. While staying at his grandparents, Ben discovers a magic tree that will change his life forever. Ben helps save the thirteenth unicorn. This is a great story with magical creatures, plenty of danger and suspense, and a great ending. Very highly recommended.
