Publisher's Summary

"Nova: The Courage to Rise" is a captivating journey of self-discovery and resilience, where two extraordinary teenage girls, Aurora and Stella, embark on an inner-city camping adventure that reveals the power within themselves and the universe.

Unveiling the Stars of Resilience: Aurora, a grounded soul from the foster system, and Stella, a quirky spirit raised by her grandfather, find a torn piece of a discarded research paper, sparking a journey of what they call "questlisting" for mothering messages in the stars.

Discovering the Depths of Self-Love: As they navigate their adventure, Aurora and Stella learn profound lessons about self-love and self-worth. Their journey becomes a testament to the transformative power of community and the pursuit of a greater good.

Empowering Mindsets and Building Futures: "Nova" inspires a shift in perspective, encouraging positive self-talk, fostering a healthy body image, and challenging conventional notions of faith. The girls learn that rewriting their past narratives can pave the way for a meaningful and purposeful future.

Questlisting for Answers, Journey of Leadership: Amidst their quest, Aurora uncovers answers about her mother that may redefine her understanding of the past. Simultaneously, Stella finds herself on an unexpected path, emerging as a leadership resource for young women seeking their own paths to a better life.

True Greatness Unveiled: "Nova" teaches that true greatness lies not in possessions or prestige, but in goodness, humility, service, and character. It's an invitation to embrace self-care and extend kindness, breathing for oneself and then for others.

Embark on the Odyssey of "Nova": Join Aurora and Stella in a tale that transcends boundaries, uncovering the universal truths that connect us all. 

"Nova: The Courage to Rise" is more than a story; it's an odyssey of empowerment, resilience, and the limitless possibilities within.
