Her mother's life hanging in the balance, Nita must now trust an arch-nemesis she's spent a lifetime fighting.The Wizard's Dilemma is the fifth title in Diane Duane's New York Times best-selling Wizardry series.

deeper problems

I hesitated to "read" this book, since it dealt with the potential death of the central character's mother who has emerged as a great person in her own right over the last few books. I didn't feel that there could be a winning ending. But there was. Additionally my teenage daughter is facing a lot of the pressures Nita does as a freshman in highschool (How far have you two gone? Well why not?)which is nice because she asks me from time to time if she's "the only one who feels this way", regarding the worries and insecurites of a fourteen year old with a best-friend-male (nomenclature due to the fact that she's not allowed to date until she's 16). I've loved all of the books, am currently getting ready to burn #6, and won't leave the house this afternoon until I have a couple of disks ready to go with me.
