A century after 9/11, in a high-tech, high-security world, magic is the last thing on anyone’s mind.
Something bad is happening. Trees are dying. People are getting sick. Fifteen-year-old Kelsa’s father died from cancer—a particularly aggressive case, the doctors said. Science has no answers.
Then Kelsa meets a boy. He’s the most beautiful boy Kelsa’s ever seen, but he’s also very strange. He claims to be Raven, the mythological creature. He keeps going on about magic, and an impending ecological disaster and that Kelsa must help him save the world.
Maybe he’s crazy.
Or maybe he’s telling her truths people have forgotten. And maybe she should help him, even if doing so means risking her own life.
