SERIES DESCRIPTION: Nerissa has been defeated, and order has once again been restored in Candracar, but Will, Irma, Taranee, Cornelia, and Hay Lin can't rest easy just yet. Will doesn't know where her relationship with Matt is going, and Taranee's got a secret that could change everything. Being a part of W.I.T.C.H. means more than protecting the universe from evil. It means working in harmony with different magical elements; it means protecting your loved ones from harm; and it means believing in the power of friendship with all your heart. BOOK #26: FRIENDS FOREVER The girls of W.I.T.C.H. may have met their greatest challenge yet. Will's dad is back in town, but he doesn't want one big, happy family. He's forcing Will to choose between him and her mother, and he's threatening Taranee's mom with blackmail. The five Guardians have battled ferocious monsters and powerful sorcerers, but they'll need to call on the full power of friendship in order to survive this latest threat.
