Intended Readers: 8 to adult (But I read it to my grandkids6 and 7and they loved it: John F. Parker)
Twelve-year-old Cora, who absolutely loves roller coasters, finds herself on the ride of her life! After being struck by a speeding van, she is suddenly transported into another world. When she finds herself suspended in midair, she yells, "How can this be happening to me?" Out of a sea of nothingness a red dot appears. As it draws nearer, she waves frantically, but is astonished to find that she can no longer see her hands or feet. She's invisible! Within seconds, standing in midair before her, a red-robed young man smiles and says, "Welcome Rosezinda." From that moment on, Cora is taken on a fantastical journey, filled with wild adventures and endearingly outlandish characters. With each new experience, Cora and readers alike reflect on important life issues.
The book deals with strong, but relevant issues: self-worth, bullying, spirituality, discrimination, diversity, death, and an out-of-body experience. But these issues are couched in fantasy, imagination, and a great deal of fun.
