What it says on Goodreads:
Her mom's still dating losers. Her boyfriend's gone back to Mexico. Dad still hasn't told his wife and kids that she exists. At school, the drama queens and bullies still rule. But worst of all for Allie Emerson--aka the Star Seeker of an old Gypsy prophecy--is that her powers have taken a hike. She can't read minds anymore. She can't move stuff just by looking at it. The other Star Seekers are counting on her psychic gifts more than ever, and the evil Tri-marks are closing in, eager to snatch her magic moonstone necklace while she's helpless. The hot new guy at school is ready and willing to fight her battles, but he comes with some wicked baggage. Dear Diary: I'm a little worried. My new BF is a demon. Welcome again to Allie Emerson's funny, scary, amazing, and always unpredictable life, as the girl voted least likely to save the world from evil.

What I have to say about it:

I liked this book better than the first one. The story continues about six months after the events that took place at the end of Moonstone. This time around Allie has to handle the pressure of being introduced to Star Seekers during a honest-to-God Star Seeker convention, while not having any power at all, still having to protect the moonstone from the Tri-marks and a serial asspincher down at her local high school. Luckily there is Kizzy, who has a solution for the no-power situation. Enter gorgeous half-demon Beck and his equally gorgeous but pretty b*tchy sister Nicole.
The story gives us new mysteries to solve and more pieces of the Allie-puzzle are revealed. The new characters that are introduced are good and helpful to Allie in her quest to find out what the moonstone can do and what happened with her family.
There is action, there is love, there is drama, there is magic and there is mystery. Great ingredients for a book.
