A PLACE WHERE WORDS CAN CHANGE ENTIRE WORLDS ...
Escaping from the turmoil of a broken family, fifteen-year-old Posy finds herself at her usual haunt ... the library. This time, though, when she chooses an unfamiliar book from the shelf, she does not devour its words and pages as she usually does.
Its words devour her.
Posy is pulled into the pages of a fairy tale, even mistaken for one of its characters. But all is far from perfect in this story's Kingdom. Characters are whispering of rebellion against both their Plot and the cruel king who has seized control of it. And Posy must find a lost princess whose role in the story is crucial, before her own story comes to a horrible end ...
With the proud and haughty Prince Kyran as a reluctant companion, Posy ventures past the Borders of the Plot, into the depths of the gloomy and treacherous Wild Land forest that lies beyond. Secrets are buried there. Dark mysteries and shadowy creatures, dangerous and deadly.
Yet the deadliest danger of all is the one that Posy carries within herself.
Soon it is clear that finding the lost princess is the least of Posy's concerns. The Author of the book must be found. His Plot must be put to rights again, his characters reminded of who they were first written to be. Only then will the True Story be written, both for Posy, and for the tale she has now become a part of.
Courage and forgiveness are needed for Posy to find her way home again. But bitterness and shadows haunt her every step of the way...
Ashlee Willis has crafted one of the most creative plot lines I’ve read in awhile! Inventive and fun, The Word Changers is an unexpected delight. The main character, Posey, falls into a book where other characters believe her to be their princess Evanthe but Posey knows this is not her story and begins a quest to set things right. Traveling beyond the story plot, Posey and Prince Kyran search for the missing princess and find so much more.
One of the reasons I love Christian Fantasy is the combination of an amazing story laced with positive messages. The Word Changers provides this mix with messages of forgiveness as Posey faces her feelings about the conflict in her real family. I believe younger pre-teens will relate to Posey and her struggles. If you’re looking for a clean, positive summer read this is worth a look.
