That is until her mother dies.
Now she has to move to a new city to live with the father she never knew. A surprise awaits her in the form of a step-sister, Lorelei, one she could have done without.
Joining a new school and having to adapt to a new surrounding, new city and most of all a new family does not make things any easier but Iris knows she has very little choice in the matter now that her mother is gone.
Lorelei does not know how to take Iris’ arrival but does her best to accommodate the ‘unexpected stranger’. It doesn’t take long before the two build a close but rocky relationship. Like any relationship with two sisters it has its ups and downs. They learn about life, nearly lose their lives, argue, cry and laugh through the experience in this coming of age story.
This is an engrossing tail of sisterhood. One that brings the two sisters together via a surprising avenue “Grape Juice”.
Headlines such as the Norway massacre, meltdown of the European Union, unscrupulous media, animal die-offs, Middle Eastern unrest, and U.S. shrinking power make the plot relevant to present day. This book is an ode to Christians, Birthers, 2012ers, Truthers, preppers, and/or other conspiracy junkies who enjoy Dan Brown, Jesse Ventura, Brad Meltzer, Alex Jones, Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye. A sequel will soon be available.
