The Oracle Doll is about a girl who discovers her sister's doll can talk. It IS a talking doll, that's the doll her little sister wanted. But, the unusual thing is, it speaks the truth-the future. And it knows what it is talking about. The girl, along with her sister, and a guy friend start asking the doll questions, and it turns out the Oracle of Delphi is living inside the doll. Together, they must know the power of the doll, and give it to someone who truly understands these powers.
