2 Teens | 2 Continents | 2 Centuries | 1 Story
Two teenage girls are connected across history by a book that says more than words can say and the fading memory of a man who can no longer say enough.
Between Worlds is the story of Juliana, a 14-year-old only child who has to leave it all behind–friends, dance team, home–to live with her grandfather, a kind man who’s in the early stages of dementia and lives half-way across the country.
She soon finds a source of strength, though: her great grandmother, Elisabeth. However, Juliana only learns about Elisabeth through a book of drawings that’s almost 100 years old, begun when Elisabeth herself was 14 in Eastern Europe, in the years following World War I.
Can Juliana’s grandfather remember enough so she can draw the strength she needs from the stories she’s never heard?
With each book, you’ll dive deeper into the tumultuous world of a teen who’s trying to make it all work: dance, school, friends, family. You’ll discover alongside her the intricate network that is a teen’s life today but whose roots were planted generations ago, in a time that’s slowly being forgotten.
