Alice 19th

This is the first time I have ever heard of the series. I picked up the book and read the blurb on the back and it sounded interesting and it turns out it really is! The story is about a high school girl named Alice who has major problems expressing her feelings in words. She wants a rabbit but can't have one since her sister has allergies and her parents tend to dote on her sister.

She sort of ends up with a rabbit anyhow, though, when it turns out a magical one she finds is really a magical girl who wants Alice to become a master of Lotis Words, words that have power to project a person through the "inner heart" worlds.

As in many magical girl stories, Alice doesn't want to do that but she's given no choice when she causes her sister to disappear. It turns out Alice is in love with the same boy that her sister is. After her sister disappears Alice agrees to try and become a Lotis Word master so she can save her.

Things get really complicated after that. This is not a real light series; it's rather dark and somber but still very well done.
