Between Worlds

A Young Adult Series About Family, Friends, and Growing Up

Juliana has to move across the country, where she doesn’t know a soul.

It’s lonely living halfway across the country since Juliana’s family moved in with her grandfather. She’s lost all her friends, especially Rachel, her best friend from dance.

Searching for connection, Juliana discovers a spark of it buried in Opa’s home, in a most unlikely place: a journal of sketches by Elisabeth, Juliana’s great-grandmother, as a teen in the wake of World War I.

Elisabeth’s father returned from World War I, only to leave a year later for America.

The drawings speak to Juliana across continents and centuries, but only Opa can help her really understand what the sketches have to say. Can she uncover enough of Opa’s memories before his dementia takes them away forever?

Between Worlds shares the journeys of two teens navigating between the worlds of childhood and womanhood: what fills them with anger, what opens their eyes, and what ultimately expands their hearts.
