The highly anticipated new stand alone novel from rising star Natalie Lloyd!

There's a lot Emma wants to tell her mother about: her job leading cemetery walking tours, her new drum set, and the fact that the town's most famous ghost, the Morning Glory, seems to be trying to send Emma a message.

But Emma can't share any of this, because Emma's mom is dead.

Luckily, there's a loophole. The women in Emma's family all have a special destiny that comes to them in the form of a dream, and when they finally achieve this destiny, they're rewarded with a vision of all their extraordinary ancestors. Emma has spent her whole life waiting to discover her destiny, and maybe see her mom again, even if just for a moment. But the dream never comes.

Just when she's about to give up, she learns that the Morning Glory IS sending her messages, hints about a secret in Emma's family that could change everything. But can she solve the mystery in time to prove her destiny . . . and say a final farewell to the mother who was was taken from her too soon?

Natalie Lloyd lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She collects old books, listens to bluegrass music, and loves exploring quirky mountain towns with her dog, Biscuit. She is the author of A Snicker of Magic and The Key to Extraordinary.

Read from the Book

From The Key to ExtraordinaryIt is a known fact that the most extraordinary moments in a girl's life come disguised as ordinary days.It is a known fact for me, at least.Because that morning started out mostly the same as all mornings before: I woke up to an ache in my chest, the smell of chocolate, and the sound of the ghost making a racket in the kitchen.Now, I'm not the sort to dwell on doom and sorrow. Life is too short for that. But I should at least try to describe the ache briefly:It is not the kind that comes from eating tacos too late at night.It's the kind that comes from being left behind. I think my heart is smart enough to know there's a place I should be filling with new memories, new jokes, and wondrous adventures with the one person I loved most of all. But that person is gone now. And so, my heart has a giant hole. I call it The Big Empty.I squeezed my eyes shut tight and reminded myself of these affirmations: Tonight I could have my Destiny Dream.
