Fantasy and reality come together as Carrie Adams, a 13-year-old girl, struggles to make sense of loss and new beginnings.

About this Book:

Readers of realistic fiction and individuals who enjoy fairytale and adventure stories or are dealing with life-altering events will connect with Carrie, the main character.

Incorporating Catholic faith and values, parents and teachers will find that this novel offers middle-graders wholesome and engaging reading.

Opening with Carrie, her two brothers, and her parents driving away from their former lives in Washington, Carrie cannot help but enter into a world of daydreams. Escaping from the reality of moving to Wisconsin-away from her best friend, Meg, and memories of someone else dear to her heart-Carrie becomes Princess Caritas, a spirited heroine who battles armed forces to protect her family. Filled with courageous escapes, bonds of loyalty, blossoming friendships, and a devoted bodyguard, the world of Princess Caritas is the ideal getaway from real life. But this imaginary distraction is only a temporary fix to a secret loss that both Caritas and Carrie must face.

Back in real life, homeschooled Carrie hides herself in the fiction of Tolkien and the poetry of Chesterton. She questions God about why he took so much away from her. Attempts to befriend her are largely unsuccessful. It seems that the only real comfort Carrie can get is from a mysterious heart-shaped locket.

What does this locket mean to Carrie? Who gave it to her? Whose picture is inside it? Enter into both stories and discover the locket's secret.
