Allie Munroe has only ever wanted to belong, maybe even be well liked. But even though she’s nice and smart and has a couple of friends, she’s still pretty much the invisible girl at school. So when the chance to work with her friends and some of the popular kids on an English project comes up, Allie jumps at the chance to be noticed.
And her plan would have worked out just fine…if they hadn’t been sucked into a magical realm through a dusty old book of fairy tales in the middle of the library.
Now, Allie and her classmates are stuck in Nerissette, a world where karma rules and your social status is determined by what you deserve. Which makes a misfit like Allie the Crown Princess, and her archrival the scullery maid. And the only way out is for Allie to rally and lead the people of Nerissette against the evil forces that threaten their very existence.
About Andria:Patricia’s a small town girl who was blessed with a large tree in the backyard that was a perfect spot for reading on summer days. Mixed with too much imagination it made her a bratty child but fated her to become a storyteller. After a stint of “thinking practically” in her twenties she earned degrees in Business and Economics and worked for a software firm in southwestern Germany but, her passion has always been a good book. She currently lives in Pittsburgh with her two wonderful kids and a husband that learned the gourmet art of frozen pizzas to give her more time to write. When she’s not writing she can be found fencing and arguing with her dogs about plot points. Most days the Beagle wins but the Dalmatian is in close second. She’s in a distant third. Patricia writes adult Paranormal under the name Patricia Eimer and writes Young Adult books under the name Andria Buchanan.

1. What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?
The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss.
2. What are you reading right now?
I’m reading Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series with my daughter at night right now. Every night we read some and the next day I look up the myths so that we can read kid friendly versions of them before we start the next chapter. I’m learning a ton of Greek Mythology that way.
3. How does your garden grow?
With lots of puppy dog—well it’s not tails let’s just go there. And it’s not growing well so let’s just say doggie fertilizer isn’t really the best thing to use. Thank god it’s not a vegetable garden is all I can say.
4. What is the last thing you Googled?
Videos of people giving hedgehogs baths in their sinks
5. What makes you cringe?
Rodents. Any rodents. All rodents. Mice. Rats. Even hamsters sort of make me cringey.
