Kea, The Third Way

It all started when Kea and Leo came to visit at the end of last summer.
They were in their early teens, but talked as adults who’ve been
through a lot. And they had! They wanted me to write their story. Kea
said it had deep implications for the future. I only understood what she
meant when she opened her … I’m carried away; I should start from the
beginning, after Kea’s house burnt mysteriously and they had to flee
from a dark organization that hunted them farther than New York, and …
No, hold on, that’s not the most important. What is, is how solemn Kea
was that day when she explained me that some things are difficult to
understand when you are standing in the middle of it. You have to step
aside and see it from a different perspective to comprehend its nature
and significance. For Kea, she had to go into a mystifying world to
understand how alarming the Sixth extinction is. And we are all
responsible. This is her story.

“This is not just a book. It is the destiny of our planet.”

“What a wonderful, powerful story! So imaginative, and with a very important message, without talking down to the kids who will be reading it. I very much appreciate fiction that accomplishes something important, and I believe this book does just that.”
Autumn J. Conley ~ Book editor.

Kea and Leo have known each other since kindergarten. They live in a rather peaceful suburb, until one day, Kea changes, and in that instant their lives are turned upside down as they are thrown into a fast paced adventure that leads them far from their home, into an unbelievable world. Only then, they realize that our planet, the Earth, is threatened by a massive life extinction similar to the one that wiped out all dinosaurs, 65 million years ago; The Holocene extinction. Only this time, it is us, humans, who are endangering the delicate balance of nature.
Kea, bit by bit, uncovers her clouded past and discovers her roots, but is a relation based on blood stronger than one based on friendship?
Everybody say she has a destiny. They say the future of our worlds is at stake. Kea has become their last hope.
They’ve convinced her that saving worlds comes before her own life.
Leo needs to help her. He promised Kea’s grandmother he would.
