The Magic Within
by Paightyn Armstrong

Anna Wick isn't your average 12 year old girl. Maybe that's because of her capabilities that seem almost magical or maybe it's because of her strength after the accidental fire that left her orphaned. Maybe it's the unbelievable size of her big heart or the secret of her origin that must be revealed. You will come to know Anna Wick as an adolescent to cheer for, admire and respect. A role model for young female readers.

Standing in the smoky remains of her childhood home, a mysteriously kind woman lends out a helping hand, promising safety and shelter. Against her better judgment, Anna accepts the invitation and is whisked away to a fantastical, hidden island far away. There, she has difficult tasks to achieve and very little time. With a queasy stomach, unstable legs and a broken heart, Anna faces many obstacles including a ravenous war, prison escapees and a secret about her that will change her life forever. She learns unforgettable secrets from the least likely people and faces things she never thought possible. All in this compelling, heart warming tale about a young girl with a big heart and even bigger obstacles.

Stay tuned for Anna Wick's next adventure of finding her magic within....
