It seems that wherever Meridian goes, death and grief follow.
On her sixteenth birthday, a car crashes in front of her family's home- and thought she's untouched, Meridian's body explodes in pain. Before she can fully recover, she is hustled off to Revelation, Colorado. There she learns the secret her parents have been hiding for an entire life: Meridian is a Fenestra, the half-angel, half-human link between the living and the dead.
It's crucial that Meridian learns how to transition human souls to the afterlife- how to help people die. Only then can she help preserve the balance between good and evil on earth. But before she can do that, Meridian must come to terms with her ability, outsmart the charismatic preacher who's taken over Revelation, and maybe- if she can accept her sworn protector, Tens, for who he is- fall in love.
Amber Kizer is addicted to trashy reality television, sour candy, loud pop music, and the scent of fresh lilies. Like Auntie in Meridian, Amber finds inspiration in quilting and baking. She likes to write with book-specific scented candles burning and a book-specific playlist going in the background (for Meridian, pine-and fir-scented candles and Celtic folk and rock music). She lives on an island with a menagerie of animals and too many yet-to-be-read books. Amber's debut novel, One Butt Cheek at a Time, was named a New York Public Library Best Book for the Teen Age. She enjoys hearing from readers via her official website www.AmberKizer.com. You can learn more about Meridian at www.MeridianSozu.com.
