The Oracle: The Magical Way for Teens to Answer Questions About Love, Style, Friends, and Futures by Emrys
The Oracle is a simple way for teens to find answers to real-life questions about style, dating, money, school, friends, home life, and health. It aims to help them face daily problems, avoid disasters, feel better about themselves, and expand their potential by offering friendly, up-front advice, free of lectures and warnings. The pack includes 25 Oracle cards. Readers decide on a question to ask and then draw one of the cards unseen. After studying the image, readers consult the book, looking under the card they have drawn. The write-up for each card features "oracular answers" in several categories. The section that most closely matches the category of the reader's question is the Oracle's answer. The pack also contains 25 "Help!" cards (on which are printed blessings, affirmations, and words of encouragement), a book containing full instructions (including the keys to the Oracle), and a pack of joss sticks. The text anticipates teens' questions, worries, and concerns, provides guidance on preparing questions to ask the Oracle, and offers helpful advice on interpreting the answers it gives.
