Hadley is pretty much the model student: straight A´s, perfect attendance, front row in class. So what if she´s overstressed and overscheduled: She´s got school covered. (Life...not so much.) Ms. Pitt is the kind of teacher who wants you to call her by her first name and puts all the chairs in a circle and tells her students to feel their book reports. Hadley wishes Ms. Pitt would stick to her lesson plan. Ms. Pitt wishes Hadley would lighten up. So when Hadley and Ms. Pitt find themselves switched into each other´s bodies, the first thing they want to do is switch right back. It takes a family crisis, a baffled principal, and a (double) first kiss to help them figure out that change can be pretty enlightening. Even if it is a little freaky! 1. Language: English.

Mystic Caravan Circus is heading to the West Coast, and while everyone is happy for the change of scenery, there´s a pall settling over the group. Poet and Kade are in a good place and planning for a change, but it´s something Poet can´t focus on because she feels as if someone is watching...and whoever it is has evil in his or her heart. The festival location is different, and instead of space, the circus denizens have festival workers and artisans on every side. They´re open and exposed, and hiding their secret has never been more important. When one of their own goes missing, Poet is determined to figure out exactly what´s going on. The answers won´t be easy, though, and there are all different types of evil. A fight is coming, and the enemy is different from anything they´ve ever faced.

Poet Parker his having a rough time of it...and then some. She owes her boss Max Anderson everything for saving her from a life on the streets, but Mystic Caravan´s favorite psychic is struggling because that loyalty caused her to lose a shot at true love. When the circus hits Brigham City, the nature lovers in the troupe are looking forward to visiting the Great Salt Lake while Poet can´t shake the feeling that someone - or rather some dark thing - is watching her. Her discomfort doesn´t ease back at the circus, where Kade Denton is busy pretending she doesn´t exist while he grapples with the truth about his parentage. When a local boy goes missing, the police show up at the circus and announce that everyone is a suspect. The suspicion only grows when the missing boy turns up alive in an adjacent field. Even after returning him to his parents, the police refuse to back down and Poet finds the walls closing in. Between a shady cabin in the woods, local legends about saltwater monsters and angry ghosts that may be waging war on outsiders, and Kade´s inability to stay away even though his anger still festers, Poet has her hands full. As always, though, the show must go on. The circus runs like a well-oiled machine...until trouble comes calling. Poet finds it´s difficult to straddle the line between magical demands and emotional reality and when the enemy becomes clear she finds she might be the ultimate target. Can Mystic Caravan´s band of merry mischief makers hold it together long enough to take down another foe? Only time will tell whether Poet´s happy ending is within her reach...or if death with find her first. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Caitlin Kelly.
