About
The Book

Senior year. For most high school students, it’s something to celebrate. For Ella, it’s a reminder of what she’s lost. A car accident cut short the life of her brother Jack before he made it that far. Now her fear of outgrowing her big brother is putting her at odds with everyone.

No one seems to understand what Ella is going through, not her parents or her best friends. The only person on her side is PhiTau, and Ella doesn’t even know he exists.

As a tender in the realm of the Dream Lord, PhiTau’s job is to take care of Ella’s dreams. But when he crosses the line from caring to meddling, he causes Ella to do what she fears most—forget.

To repair the broken pieces of Ella’s memory, PhiTau may need to make the ultimate sacrifice.

 It was too bad, really, that humans couldn’t step inside their own minds and tidy up now and then. They’d all be so much happier.

 

– Phi Tau

About The Author

Emma G Rose intended to become a badass girl reporter like Nellie Bly, until the Christmas Eve she stood on a riverbank waiting for rescue divers to pull a body from the water. That’s when she stopped waiting and wandered off to explore the world instead.

People who keep track of this sort of thing call her writing speculative fiction. It’s a fancy name for what you get when you mix up a dash of sci-fi, a dose of fantasy, and a sprinkling of humor, then add in one of the big life-shaping questions. You know the ones. They usually start with “why.” As in: “Why are we here? Why did this happen? And why should we keep hoping for the future?”
