A century-old diary could change everything for Juliana.
Fourteen-year-old dancer Juliana and her parents move across the country to care for an ailing grandfather. Cut off from her friends and overwhelmed by the sea of family members she hardly knows, Juliana escapes one night to her grandfather’s basement. There, hidden among old books and boxes, she discovers a glimmer of hope: a diary full of sketches from a teenager who lived long ago.
Deep down, Juliana knows that the stories in the drawings can help her get through this move. But the only person who understands the sketchbook is her grandfather, and Alzheimer’s is locking away his memories with each passing day.
Between Worlds is Lori Wolf-Heffner’s contemporary/historical series. If you like Judy Blume and Louisa May Alcott, start this poignant and uplifting young adult series where the chapters alternate between Juliana today and her great-grandmother Elisabeth almost 100 years ago.
This volume contains the first three books in the series: The Move, The Distance, and The First Step. Buy the opening Between Worlds trilogy and start a journey that spans generations.
