In the second installment of The Morphosis.me Files, Kayleigh delves deep into untapped magic to better control her morphing powers, still determined to find and free her mother. No amount of magic, however, can help her survive the social tightropes of high school life: dating, popularity contests, a diverse group of friends, exchange students, and a surprise sports competition called the Gaelic Games.
When a vulture begins stalking Kayleigh night and day, she suspects the foreign exchange students are more than they seem. Concerned for her safety and with the Gaelic Games approaching, Kayleigh is forced to face her new enemies on the field. It’s a winner-takes-all match that will either lead her closer to finding her mother or further than ever into enemy territory.
