A Trick Of The Light
A fairy tale about knowing
"When I look back on my life, it seems as if I grew up by accident. But at the end of the day, that's the best way to grow up, isn't it?"
Eleven-year-old troublemaker Jillian Brighton receives an unexpected gift: a magical telescope that can see into alternate realities. As she learns to use it, she discovers a civilization on the moon. But her best friend doesn't believe her, and her suspicious parents want the telescope sent back where it came from. Then the shady private detective Nicholas DiAngelo tells her the telescope was stolen, and that he is coming to take it away. Determined to keep it, Jillian must outwit him at his own game.
A spinoff from Fellwater: The Hidden Houses, the author's urban fantasy series, A Trick Of The Light is a modern-day fairy tale about knowledge, childhood, and discovery.
