When Leaves Listen, the first book in a planned series, blends the magic of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time, the metaphysical undertones of Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, and a flare of the dystopian adventure found in Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games.
The reader follows fourteen-year-old Dorothy May Noles as she finds her average life upended by a not-so-average disaster. Dottie must navigate the evacuated wasteland that was once New England to transport crucial information, all the while evading an unsettling swarm of humming metallic leaves.
Meanwhile, in the world called Sum, an aged seer and a group of enlightened underground rebels seek to protect the worlds from Orville, a charlatan whose work is draining the spiritual lifeforce from the mountains and threatening to destroy the fantastical creatures that reside there.
A self-proclaimed nobody, Dottie will suddenly become the most important somebody to save everybody… on Earth and in the world it has just collided with.
