If you’re like most kids, you sometimes don’t get along with your brothers and sisters. But if your siblings needed you, you would do everything you could to help them.
In author Susie Ireland Read’s Beyond the Scarlet Door, Maleeya and Kieran Wright have an older sister, Sierra who is very ill. Their whole world begins to fall apart when Nurse Pippy arrives on their doorstep insisting she is there to take care of the ill teen. Unfortunately, after the nurse’s arrival, Sierra gets worse instead of better.
When Sierra asks to see a pink fairy, the girls assume she wants to see a fairy statue. Anxious to do anything that will make their sister feel better, Maleeya and Kieran, along with their dog, Mi, go on a quest to find the pink fairy. Little do the sisters know that such an innocent request would lead them to the beautiful, yet treacherous world that lies beyond the scarlet door.
Follow Maleeya and Kieran, reduced to the size of white mice and carrying a backpack filled with seemingly useless items from home, as they overcome fears that lie deep within their souls. Can they outwit Raven, the evil fairy and bring back seven items needed to save their sister? What magical creatures will they meet in this new world, and will they be friends or foes? Lastly, what family secrets will the sisters discover that could change their lives forever?
