We are excited to introduce to you two books from our editor of 25 years, Sara Evangelos.
Sara has written two young adult books under the pen name, Sara Webley.
Zo in the Roosting Tree tells the story of an 11-year-old girl who wakes up one morning… as a crow! She doesn’t know how it happened, but discovers she loves being a crow. Yet she must find the secret to becoming human again. Follow Zo’s adventures as she learns to fly, plays games with a goofy cardinal named Rufus, and surfs the wind with her wings in the clouds. Kahr! Kahr!
Being Zo the crow is fun! But when Zo discovers the dangers of her new life—owls and bobcats and cars—she misses her human family. And time is running out; her family is leaving their vacation home at the end of the month. Can a mysterious snapping turtle help Zo find the magic she needs to go home again?
This nature-inspired fantasy by Sara Webley is perfect for ages 7 and older. Illustrated by Robin Prisland.

Somewhere Besides Denver takes place in 1907, with best friends Violet and Marion excited about their upcoming trip to Europe—a rite of passage for wealthy teens after high school. But they’re not too excited that Helen, a rancher’s daughter with a rich aunt, is joining them.
All three teens know the rules for well-bred young ladies: Don’t go anywhere without your chaperone! Don’t speak to strangers, especially men! And when you return to Denver, settle into a life of boring parties and pleasing your husband.
But they’re already restless.
What awaits Helen, Violet, and Marion in Paris, where society rules aren’t as strict? Where they meet a famous fashion designer, a ground-breaking female artist, and some fancy-dressed dogs? And in London, where they join the fight for women’s rights?
Will their chaperone Lena, a rule-breaker herself, keep them out of serious trouble while giving them the freedom they need to become women of the new century?
Ages 11 and older will love meeting young women of the early twentieth century in this charming young adult historical novel. Available in ebook and paperback. Visit https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TRP7NWM/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i0
