Eighteen-year-old, tell-it-like-it-is Ella Beuchene is about to graduate from a prestigious high school, and yet she’s never felt more trapped. Her family is hell-bent on forcing her into a future she doesn’t want. Her boyfriend no longer gets her. And her best friend is keeping something secret. Something that could shatter their friendship for good. Ella is desperate to escape her “privileged” existence.

Then, one warm summer night, Ella finds herself in the woods behind her house. The forest is lusher than ever before, the creatures of the night louder, and the moon brighter. Beneath its green canopy, she meets a mysterious, striking stranger. A man who gets her, who shifts her perspective of the world, and who…wait for it…glows in the dark.

From that moment on, Ella’s not sure that it’s just her life she wants to escape. It may be her world.

I was in the woods. It was nighttime, and I was alone. Again.

I looked up at the moon, noticing that it was full and low, and a blue mist tinged its circumference. It seemed so close to the earth that I could almost reach out and touch it. This felt familiar. Too familiar. I looked down to see my pendant had turned a radiant blue and I was wearing…a nightdress, of all things. God, I was half-naked. Had I been wearing that before?

A rustle in the nearby trees made me whirl around. And there he was. The beautiful, glowing boy was standing in the clearing with those indigo eyes focused on me.

My breath caught. “Colton!” I exclaimed as a rush of heat filled me. Once I realised I’d called his name like a long-lost lover, I cringed. I’d met the guy once, for God’s sake.

And here I was in the woods, again, acting like a lunatic. And wearing…I gasped and covered my chest with my arms.

About the Author:
Alexandra Wright has been writing since she could put pen to paper. Growing up in Sydney, Australia, she took pleasure in playing the piano, singing, the arts, languages, cooking and, of course, she spent a great deal of time reading and writing. Having so many interests meant her career aspirations had a habit of changing, but her profession eventually chose her. An incurable obsession with literature, her earliest and most enduring passion, led her to pursue a career as a novelist. While she dabbled in writing short stories and novellas as a child and teen, she began writing full-length novels as an adult. Being a child at heart, and an educator of young children, it was a natural progression for her to move in to writing fiction for children and young adults.
