The Emerald Ring
By Dorine White
Summary courtesy of Goodreads.com
Ordinary tween life turns upside down when Ancient Egypt intrudes on modern middle school life. Twelve year old Sara Guadalupe Bogus reads about adventures, but unexpectedly is drawn into one when a mystical emerald ring that once belonged to Cleopatra becomes stuck on her finger.
A series of burglaries spook Sara’s small Ohio hometown. Concluding that the root of all the crimes is the emerald ring, Sara realizes it’s up to her and her friends, Heidi and African exchange student Kainu, to save the town and protect Cleopatra’s legacy.
Filled with magic, the ring thrusts Sara into a world filled with nightmares, allows her to shape shift into an Egyptian cat and battle assassins.
Sara Bogus is twelve years old and loves adventure, at least she does when it comes to the books she likes to read. Sara finds a emerald ring in her grandmothers attic and tries it on(well wouldn't you) only now its stuck on her finger and won't come off.

Sara's ring once belonged to Cleopatra and has mystical qualities that makes her hear voices and dreams of strange and terrifying things.
This is a great book and reminded me of the Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan.
3.5 Stars
