Description

Lily Lightfoot can make weird things happen, just by telling a story. It's a gift she can't always control, making her the queen of seventh grade outcasts. She can't make a million dollars appear out of thin air or make it rain cupcakes, but it's not for lack of trying. More than anything, she wants to see her mom, who's left her in the care of her unconventional grandmother, Gwendolyn, and her only friend, Peter. When Lily finds a strange fairytale book, she's drawn into a fantasy world where her mother waits for her. Lily is convinced the book she's been reading is real. According to the book, those dark forces now threaten to destroy her mother. Despite the dire warnings of Gwendolyn and Peter, Lily embarks on a mission to find a way into the fantasy world to save her mom. The events she sets into motion with the telling of a story will change all of their lives forever.show more

About Lisa T Cresswell

Lisa T. Cresswell, like most writers, began scribbling silly stories, and poems at a very young age. Born in North Carolina, the South proved fertile ground to her imagination with its beautiful white sand beaches and red earth. In fifth grade, she wrote, directed, and starred in a play "The Queen of the Nile" at school, despite the fact that she is decidedly un-Egyptian looking. Perhaps that's why she went on to become a real life archaeologist? Unexpectedly transplanted to Idaho as a teenager, Lisa learned to love the desert and the wide open skies out West. This is where her interest in cultures, both ancient and living, really took root, and she became a Great Basin archaeologist. However, the itch to write never did leave for long. Now she writes middle grade and young adult novels, both fantastical and contemporary. Lisa still lives in Idaho with her family and a menagerie of furry critters that includes way too many llamas!show more
