Initially I was worried that the ending was going to be too dark BUT am I glad I was so wrong! My daughter and I truly enjoyed this charming story… We laughed and cried…mesmerized!!! I still got chills from the ending… Make sure you read this to the end. The story keeps getting better and better. What a magical, awakening ride! -Amazon Review
Leila is a fantasy journey into the place between life and death. The main character, Leila, is a teenager on the brink of committing suicide. She is swept away by benevolent forces to examine her life, herself, and her choices. This work is written from the perspective of the main character, and the reader travels with her through different spheres of existence in the company of her guide, Axel.
It takes courage to be a happy teenager. Teens often suffer from low self-esteem, relationship troubles, family dynamics, peer pressure, anxiety, depression… Working with teenagers for a decade has made me realize how beautiful, vulnerable, strong, yet fragile their world can be.
We all want to feel good enough, loved, and accepted. We all want to get up and see this world a bit brighter, and go to sleep knowing it is a day worth living. I hope this book will bring just that, and maybe a good laugh too.
