A diary filled with drawings from a time long passed…
It’s Christmas and the Roths are moving across the country to live with Opa, who is stricken with Alzheimer’s. Juliana, 14, is forced to leave her friends and the life she’s loved behind. She’s less than thrilled—and feeling more lonely than ever.
But in the cellar of her grandfather’s house she discovers a gateway to another time: a sketching journal, and the story of Elisabeth, her great-grandmother.
Started after World War I, when she was 14, Elisabeth’s journal is full of drawings of unknown people, struggles, and celebrations. However, Juliana can’t understand the stories behind them. Opa is the last living person who knows the truth––a truth he’s losing day by day, as Alzheimer’s threatens to destroy the living memories of Elisabeth’s life forever.
In Between Worlds 1: The Move, Juliana finds hope in the mysterious drawings of a teen from long ago as she tries to find her grounding in her new world.
