Belvidere author explores otherworldly adventure
BELVIDERE, Ill. — Author Jennifer Carol announces the release of her new coming-of-age and fantasy novel, One Last Look.
The novel introduces readers to Emma Miller, who — after moving to Minnesota — thinks the worst of her problems are going to be trying to fit into a new school, and trying to get along with her new family life. Little did she know that, when she began reading the previous house owner’s journal, she and her step-brother Parker would be taken into a different world.
Forced to leave their family behind, they are brought deeper and deeper into the lives of a hidden group of fictional characters, whom Emma previously didn’t believe in, that has been fighting one another for centuries. And in the end, Emma’s decision comes down to this: does she choose to remain alive, or does she sacrifice herself to save the people she loves?
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Carol is a Belvidere North High School graduate, currently a student at Rock Valley College, and is planning to attend Rockford College in the fall. She began writing at the age of 10, and started her first novel at 12. Her book is a credit to her family, who has given her plenty of inspiration for writing, and the encouragement to follow her dreams of publishing her very first novel. It is her hope to major in English and to go into teaching, where she can share her love and passion in writing with future generations.
