VALERIE CJ MCGEE PRESENTS
BOOK ONE IN THE TALISMAN SAGAS
THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER
Quite often, when grandmothers tell their amazing stories from days long past, the folk listening assume that the tales are at best exaggerated. James and Elisa thought so too.
James is none too happy to be sent to spend three months with his maternal grandmother and his five year old sister. Envious of his friends, who all have summer jobs. Without the things he feels matter most, his vacation takes a bizarre turn, when the combined "gifts" that he and Elisa have and a talisman created by a mysterious African prince, take them to the last place he could have expected.
Join these courageous siblings as they travel back to 1943. Together, they will make new friends and encounter grave danger. Can this fifteen year old get Elisa back home? And will he finally understand that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence?
