SPECIAL AUTHOR'S EDITION--THE GATEWAY CAFE: MEMOIRS OF A VACATIONING ANGEL, A NOVEL BY HEIDI CONNOLLY
AUTHOR'S SPECIAL PRE-PUBLICATION EDITION AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW!
Meet Thimble Allegra Smith: Not yet 16, too tall, too sensitive, much too much of a social misfit for comfort. T.A. wakes up one morning shocked to find her dachshund MiLK acting like the Cheshire Cat, the hot boy she's been crushing on for, like, ever suddenly wanting her to tutor him in Shakespeare, and the critical need for a roll of duct tape and a massive injection of sanity because suddenly there's a pair of wings on her back. Finally, after years of doing nothing but despising herself for her own ineptitude and cowardice to handle bullying by peers, sabotage on the court, and the everyday complexities of life, Thimble finds this incomprehensible new development worthy of total meltdown status—and revenge her only viable option.
Hang with T.A. as she magically catapults to the UP THERE where she meets angels at the Gateway Cafe deciding where they’d like to spend their next human “vacation”; to the DOWN THERE, where she lives an urban life with high-expectation parents, past friends with agendas, a nonexistent dating life, and multiple insecurities; and to the IN BETWEEN, where she meets her beloved, recently passed Grandma T, who travels interdimensionally, changes outfits faster than Miley Cyrus, and shares insights laced with spirit humor and unconditional love. And as she learns why we’re really here and who we really are: ANGELS ON VACATION.
The Gateway Cafe speaks to what it means to know we are spirit here to live full lives in our biodegradable human suits, to young adults in the throes of self-discovery, and to High Sensitives of all ages who are invited to experience their sensitivities as the gifts they truly are.
