Testimonials and Endorsements
This story touched me in many ways. Having lost two brothers
myself, I identified with the heartache of Josiah and Senora at the
unexpected loss of their brother. Lorie makes the wisdom of the
Bible come alive as Senora and Josiah go on a wild and dangerous
journey to find each other and find healing.

"From the opening words of her novel, Lorie Gurnett speaks directly
to her readers on issues they face daily. Her book is not only a positive
and uplifting story for young adults, but it also invites them
into a magical world full of color, light, and empowerment. Her
narrative is especially empowering for young girls who have been
bullied, who suffer from depression, and who experience more grief
than some adults. She writes about the hard topics pre-teens and
teenagers face without glorifying it. Instead, she gives young readers
powerful tools to help them fight through their adolescence with
confidence and faith."
