Jen is a seventeen-year old girl who gets average grades and has a boring normal life except for one thing—she is a human chameleon.
She can transform herself into any inanimate object she touches. An ability she’s hidden from everyone, especially her parents. After all she is just an average girl so no one would believe she could do something so extraordinary. That is until she meets Ainsley, a handsome artist at a gallery showing. His painting are so beautiful and lifelike Jen wants to jump inside them and become one with the fantastical worlds. When they go out to dinner after the gallery opening, Jen senses there is something special about Ainsley too. He has a secret just like hers.
They’d make the perfect couple—if only his secret wouldn’t kill her
Excerpt From The Girl Chameleon Episode One…
Speeding through the air, my wings flash a kaleidoscope of colors as they pulse across the bedroom. I make a sharp turn and bank toward the bay window. My momentum quickly fades and I land gently on the carpet. I haven't learned to master transforming into a real bird yet so I have to satisfy my curiosity about flight by turning into a plastic toy instead. Kit, my five-year-old baby brother, giggles with delight as he pulls the rubber band back and launches me into the air again.
The blissful feeling of flight is cut short when I hear Mom calling my name. “Jennifer, get your butt down here right now. You’re going to make Kit late for kindergarten.”
Mom hollers again and I concentrate on the floor. First, my feet pop up, then my arms and legs. A warm sensation spreads through my limbs as blood pumps through my veins once again. It’s a feeling I’ve experienced since my first transformation into a teddy bear at the age of four.
