    Darcy Bennett just wants to be normal. Normal clothes, normal friends, a normal life… But between her parent’s antics and the mysterious creatures that keep turning up, ‘normal’ is not happening for her. Darcy is the daughter of two eccentric, and obsessive archaeologists, who are so work focused, they often seem to forget she exists. On a family holiday to Cornwall, Darcy discovers there is a task before her and it is hers alone; one that challenges her ideas about the world and more so, about herself. In exploring the strange happenings, Darcy becomes trapped in an alternate world where the rules are vastly different from those she knows. Sent on a journey by a stranger, Darcy begins to understand that being true to herself is more important than ‘fitting in’, and friends can be made in the most unlikely of places. She realises her physical journey is to find a way back home; yet her emotional discovery is to value real love, true loss and the knowing of the right things; this is the hardest path for Darcy to travel… “A coming-of-age story blended with wonderous and enlightening places and beings that create an overall tale of enjoyment that Lewis Carroll himself would love…well done on this exceptional book and I do look forward to continuing the story with Darcy soon…” - Amanda, Indiebooks reviewer
