About the Book
“I just finished the book and am absolutely incredulous at how captivating the story is.”
-Larry Winget, New York Times bestselling author of Your Kids Are Your Own Fault
Elizabeth Hazel is desperate for a different life. Everything about her teenage existence – her imperfect body, her smoking, a lame summer job, and her annoying brother – makes each day more depressing than the last. But everything changes when a mysterious stranger reveals a link between her upcoming eighteenth birthday and an ancient legend known as The Day of Desires.
With the prophecy proven true, Elizabeth is thrust into a strange new world where dragons rule the skies, terrible monsters abound, and magic shimmers in dark places. Aided by a dashing admirer, she must face her biggest fears in order to return home. Will she find the courage to overcome these challenges, or will fear devour her whole?
The Message of the Book
While the book is full of mystery, monsters, fear, and vulnerability, it recognizes the common pressures of being a teenager and delivers valuable lessons about how to reclaim one’s inner confidence and joy. Writing the tale of Elizabeth Hazel is Katie Humphrey’s way of sharing wisdom with an audience who is more likely to absorb fantasy and a good story over a self-help book.
Katie intends to use the book as a means to connect with and improve the lives of young adults. Parents will be pleased with the message of the novel and teen readers will love the fast-paced energy of the story.
