My name is Pagie. My sisters are Inka and Pen, but we call her Penny to keep at least a scrap of dignity. If you haven’t figured it out, my parents are authors. Which doesn’t sound so bad until you find out that they feel compelled to live out each adventure they put in their books.
That means in my fourteen years I’ve lived in a tipi, a windmill, a castle (that was amazing!) and now this year we’re moving to an igloo. An igloo. What kid in the twenty-first century spends their Freshman year freezing to death encased in ice so her parents can get a realistic taste of the imaginative world they’re creating for their adoring fans?
Inka actually thinks it’s cool (Oh, and I love puns). She’s planning on starting a whole Save the Walrus campaign. I don’t even know if they’re endangered, but that doesn’t stop her. Penny’s so wrapped up in her own fictional world that she rarely sees anything beyond the book at the end of her nose. And me? I’m proud of my parents, but I sometimes wish they’d be a little bit more… Normal.
Igloos, Imaginations and Plain, Ol’ Me will be released in January of 2031.
