The Key to Extraordinary

by Natalie Lloyd

There’s a lot Emma wants to tell her mother about: her job leading cemetery walking tours, her new drum set, and the fact that the town’s most famous ghost, the Morning Glory, seems to be trying to send Emma a message.

But Emma can’t share any of this, because Emma’s mom is dead.

Luckily, there’s a loophole. The women in Emma’s family all have a special destiny that comes to them in the form of a dream, and when they finally achieve this destiny, they’re rewarded with a vision of all their extraordinary ancestors. Emma has spent her whole life waiting to discover her destiny, and maybe see her mom again, even if just for a moment. But the dream never comes…

Just when she’s about to give up, she learns that the Morning Glory IS sending her messages, hints about a secret in Emma’s family that could change everything. But can she solve the mystery in time to prove her destiny…and say a final farewell to the mother who was taken from her too soon?
