When life gives Tiz Phoenix lemons, she hunts life down and kicks it in the shin. Afterwards, she juices those lemons then plants the seeds. She’s a tree nymph. And that’s what tree nymphs do to survive in a modern society that keeps stretching across our Earth.
Now that Tiz is thirteen, she’s counting down the seconds to a tree nymph rite of passage that will grant her an object of immense power. With it, she could save her woodland home and reach her goal of protecting all things good and green.
That is, if she doesn’t get grounded first.
The day before the rite, Tiz stumbles upon a pamphlet that her mother unwittingly dropped—her mom wants to banish her to a military academy for magical beings that lies in the farthest corner of the universe. Unlike other mystical schools that young witches and warlocks desperately want to get into, Tiz would rather run for the hills to stay out.
However, her attempts to avoid going could lead her into an even bigger mess—a mystery involving a monstrous green tree of legendary evil.
