About Secrets of Worry Dolls
- Paperback: 312 pages
- Publisher: Wyatt-MacKenzie Publishing (December 1, 2016)
According to Mayan tradition, if you whisper your troubles to the Worry Dolls, they will do the worrying instead of you–therefore, it follows that Worry Dolls are the keepers of a great many secrets . . .
On the eve of the end of the world–according to the Mayan calendar–Mari Guarez Roselli’s secrets are being unraveled by her daughter, Lu.
Lu’s worry dolls are at-capacity as she tries to outrun the ghosts from her past–including loved ones stolen on 9/11–by traveling through her mother’s homeland of Guatemala, to discover the painful reasons behind her own dysfunctional childhood, and why she must trust in the magic of the legend.
–Sarah Pekkanen, Internationally best-selling author of The Opposite of Me
.“With heart, humor and her signature touch of magic, Amy Impellizzeri brings to life the tale of a mother and daughter each facing all together extraordinary circumstances.
