It’s such a pleasure in these lockdown days to introduce you to a fab new author – Adriana Barros. Her first YA (young adult) fantasy book, The Magical Life of Lola Bloom, will be published on 26th May. It sounds like a slice of the most delicious escapism, just what we all need now. Here is Adriana to tell you all about it:
No one loves her; no one understands her.She doesn’t fit into this world. This is Lola Bloom, who finds out her parents are hiding a big secret. She discovers clues after a car accident, but these have consequences.
Following her return from a brief visit to a strange world, Lola’s eyes turn purple – a sign something more is about to happen. When her father is kidnapped, Lola’s forced to act.
Lola is plunged into a dangerous adventure in a parallel world. There is a whole kingdom waiting for her in the fourth dimension… but she must get her father back from Leike’s Land and destroy Elof, the villain who threatens Lumen. But he doesn’t seem so dangerous, and she feels drawn to him.
The journey is long and uncertain, and her mind is against her. But Lola will dare you to find out what is real or fantasy in life. All is possible; all is true, depending on who believes it.
Thanks so much, Adriana, and good luck with the book launch!
