“A tween travels to a parallel Earth via snow globe in Cummins' entertaining debut novel.” (Publishers Weekly) In the heart of Vienna, 12-year-old Sarah Ann Reisende wanders into a mysterious shop where snow globes double as portals to other worlds. After breaking the globe tethered to Earth, she discovers a cryptic note scribbled on the back of a photograph. The note links her father, who left before her third birthday, to a place called Elohi. Could this be a chance to find her father at last? Unable to return home, Sarah follows the lead into the world of Elohi. But an army of vicious hybrids led by a genetically engineered warrior named Malvine now rules the once peaceful planet, and she becomes a target as Malvine wants to use the shop’s connections to wage war. Can Sarah uncover the truth behind her father leaving and find a way home before Malvine gains control of the shop?

Nancy Peterson - an Audie and Earphones Award winner, multiple Voice Arts Award and Independent Audiobook Award nominee - began her career in audiobooks with petty theft. Her dad’s brand-new-and-strictly-off-limits tape recorder was too tempting and she and her friends recreated worlds from favorite chapter books. She never could have dreamed that this would be the beginning of a career she loves. A 25-year veteran actor of stage, screen and recording studio. Nancy has a penchant for dialects; diving deep into the study of language. Her narration style, summed up by AudioFile Magazine, “creates the sense of listening to a play instead of a straightforward reading.” Nancy resides near the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with her husband and children, two dogs, three fish, one turtle, one snake, a hive of bees, and a gecko.
