"What a great story! Please consider making it a series" ARC Reviewer

"Absolutely love it.  It has such an interesting blend of classic MG fantasy and just a smidge of superhero-like influence, it's a fast and attention-grabbing read." ARC Reviewer


Beyond the Bright Sea meets Willa of the Wood.


Eleven-year-old Luella has a life she loves. She’s homeschooled and lives on a swamp. But there is a reason she’s sheltered away from everything.


There is a place called Storey. Some say it’s just a myth... But it is where Luella’s grandfather says they are from. His instructions are for her to go there if anything ever happens to him.


“Follow the birds,” he said. But the birds disappeared and no one could explain why.


A mysterious light from her grandfather’s drawer leads Luella on a journey across the swamps of Southern Florida to find those like her. Along the way, she makes new friends, or are they enemies? And why is someone tracking her?


Luella is led down a path of discovery, exploring questions of identity, belonging, and finding home.


A fast-paced adventure filled with hope.
