Book would have been published in either the late 1990s or early 2000s, I
encountered it around 2003 or 2004. A boy (MC) goes to summer camp,
expecting it to be boring and normal, and then to his surprise begins to
learn magic. Everyone in camp starts off choosing their own "spirit stone"
which indicates what sort of ability you have. The MC has a stone which
indicates he'll be a gatekeeper, keeping things from elsewhere from coming
through to earth. There's some sort of reference to a "Raven Gate" although
I can't remember if that has to do with the title of the book, or the name
of the camp. MC has a female friend who picks a Rose Quartz stone as hers,
and gets trapped inside of it by accident. Book is possibly part of a
series. This sound at all familiar to anyone?
Edit: thanks so much!!!! I've been looking for this book for ten years,
