Brigitta is a young Water Faerie from the village-nest of Tiragarrow who is anxious about going through The Change, as she doesn’t see how destiny markings on her wings should determine her life’s path!
A few days before the annual Festival of the Elements, Brigitta is flying an errand with her tag-a-long sister when a mysterious curse turns everyone in the White Forest to stone, except for the two of them. They have no idea why they were not cursed, but they do know if they don’t turn everyone back in time for the festival rituals, the Hourglass of Protection will run out and so will its protective field around the forest.
With no one in their forest left to help them, they must leave the protected realm to seek an exiled faerie they have only heard about in ancient tales.
“Dinsmore weaves a coming of age story through a world that is both fantastic and believable.”
. . . a little gem of a book . . . richly imagined and described, the characters believable, and their journey exciting to read about.
~Young Adult Books Central
. . . a radiant first novel.
~Lori Calabrese, National Children’s Books Examiner
. . . whimsical and imaginative . . . I had to keep reading and reading because my own world disappeared into Brigitta’s and I wanted to stay in hers. If only I could grow my own set of wings.
~Jennette McCurdy, co-star of Nickelodeon’s iCarly
