A Jane Austen-inspired YA tale about a sixteen-year-old girl who finds a magical book—and discovers that anything she writes inside it comes true.
Emma is used to things going her way. Her father is headmaster of her prestigious boarding school, her friends take her advice as gospel, and she's convinced that a relationship with her long-time crush is on the horizon.
As it turns out, Emma hasn't seen anything yet. When she finds an old book in an abandoned library, things really start going Emma's way: anything she writes in the book comes true.
But the power of the book is not without consequences, and Emma soon realizes that she isn't the only one who knows about it. Someone is determined to take it from her—and they'll stop at nothing to succeed.
A new boy in school—the arrogant, aloof, and irritatingly handsome Darcy de Winter—becomes Emma's unlikely ally as secrets are revealed and danger creeps ever closer.
Mechthild Gläser wurde im Sommer 1986 in Essen geboren. Auch heute lebt und arbeitet sie im Ruhrgebiet, wo sie sich ihrem Studium widmet und ab und an unfassbar schlecht Ballett tanzt – aber nur, wenn niemand hinsieht. Sie hat früh mit dem Schreiben begonnen und ihr Laptop steht noch immer auf der rosafarbenen Schreibtischunterlage, auf der ihre ersten Geschichten entstanden. Inspiration findet sie überall, am besten jedoch bei einer Tasse Pfefferminztee.
Rough translation: Mechthild Gläser was born in Essen in the summer of 1986. She lives and works in Ruhrgebiet, where she is dedicated to her studies and now and then dances ballet badly – but only when nobody is watching. She started writing at an early age, and her laptop is still on the rose-coloured desk pad on which she wrote her first stories. She finds inspiration everywhere, but best with a cup of peppermint tea.
