“How old were you when your sister died?”
“Just because my sister was kidnapped by a dragon doesn’t mean she’s dead.”
Hello and welcome to the website for the novel-in-progress Her Sister’s Dragon by Sami Bennett. It is a young adult fantasy novel about a cursed girl named Malaka trying to rescue her sister from a dragon with the help of her best friend Anaïs, a deaf foreign girl on the run.
The whole novel started with one little idea when I was 12 year old. I wanted to tell an adventure story with a woman as the main character who doesn’t end up with a love interest at the end. Simple, right? But how many adventure stories can you think of that fit that description? They are few and far between, and I plan to add to them.
This novel deals with other complex issues, such as mental illness, disabilities, sexual orientation, prejudice, self-compassion, and the difficulty of deciding when to fight for change and when to accept things as they are.
At the same time, this is a novel about two young girls going on adventures and in the process learning more about life an themselves. I hope you enjoy it when it comes out. At the moment, it is still in the makings, but you can find previews and updates here on this website and also on the Facebook page.
