Natalie Evergreen’s best friend, Samantha Harper, is moving away to attend Woodland Academy, a prestigious private preparatory school in Virginia, far away from Memphis, TN. Natalie is unwilling to break up their friendship, so she agrees to attend Woodland Academy with her, where they encounter supernatural occurrences.

Although, Natalie is smitten by the school’s enchantments, splendor, and wonders, Natalie is determined to understand these mysteries with Sam. Natalie learns there’s more to Woodland Academy than meets the eye.

Natalie quickly rises to fame when she is elected to participate in the school’s annual games. Things take an unexpected turn when unbelieving Natalie converts to Christianity. However, she finds it a struggle to share her newfound faith with her devout atheist parents, who want nothing to do with God.

Can Natalie get her parents to accept her faith before their fate takes a turn for the worst? Natalie knows every decision she makes is crucial, but one thing is certain, her life will never be the same again.

Find out what awaits Natalie in this coming-of-age story of a young girl who learns faith doesn’t come without a price.

      Our kids definitely need more Christian reading options in this crazy world we live in. Thanks so much for stopping by and joining the conversation, Penny!

        Hi Penny,
        It’s my pleasure writing YA Christian Fiction and sharing God’s love through storytelling.
        It’s important for today’s youth to see themselves as people who can do amazing things for the Lord and be remembered for their deeds no matter their age.
        Thanks for commenting!

    The Mysteries of Woodland Academy sounds amazing. I have two boys getting ready to enter middle school (and two other kids behind them) who could benefit from the message of the book. It’s difficult to find Middle Grade and YA fiction with positive, faithfilled content.

      • Kirhonda Williams

        Hello Bethany,
        Thank you for your kind words about my novel. I truly enjoyed writing it. Also,
        I am happy to hear your sons are about to enter middle school what time for them and you. Our children grow up really fast and before you know it they are graduating from high school. I pray they have a wonderful year. Best wishes and I hope they enjoy it.
