About the Book:
Trapped on a flood ravaged island full of orphans, natives and wealthy citizens of the prosperous city Lux, a young girl named Geneva finds herself enslaved at an orphanage with no future and a past she can’t remember.
That all changes when she meets someone who promises her that there’s more in store for her than she ever could have imagined. Her once dull life rapidly spirals out of control as she starts to acquire new magical powers that may be the key to unlocking an ancient legend along with her true identity. But first she must master these powers, all while trying to keep them secret from her friends and the evil head mistress at the orphanage.
Before she knows it, Geneva is in over her head and has inadvertently wrapped her friends into her web of magic and lies and now all of their lives hang in the balance once the head mistress finds out her plan to prove that the legend of Lux may not be a legend at all! Who will Geneva trust and how far will she go to save her friends and find out her true identity?
Beautifully defined characters and a twisting plot with plenty of danger and thrills seamlessly fill the pages of this book, with description, emotion and the discovery of the unknown. Reliance on friendships made, and the importance of learning to trust as you find your way through challenges are all high points for this book, and the solidly developed characters that grow in importance and their own talents as the story progresses.
Christina Benjamin has created a story that is both difficult to put down, but easy to follow – making it a perfect read for all ages, but particularly suited to those 12 and up. The start of a new fantasy, this volume will have you reading late into the night and anxious for the second book in the series.

About the Author:
Young adult book author Christina Benjamin grew up in the small town of La Plume, PA, where at an early age her playful imagination lent itself to love the art of storytelling. She began to write short stories in grade school and continued practicing her craft all the way through college where she attended the University of Central Florida to complete her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Technical Writing.
After spending some time writing for blogs and websites, she was inspired to get back to her true love of telling stories, and dove head first into The Geneva Project, her first novel.
Christina now lives in Central Florida with her husband, son, dog and cats and spends her free time writing the 2nd book of The Geneva Project series.
