Rather than spend one more day amongst the humiliating remarks to the amusement of her fellow peers, Emily Fickeltin runs away. Or, rather, walks away. Emily is misunderstood and disliked by what seems to be every other child her age and on top of it all, she is overweight. Her attempt to escape her pain leads her to discover a hidden place with a new hope for friends and acceptance, though she cannot stay long. Here she meets Phea and Emily finds that she is not the only one looking for an escape. These two lost and disheartened souls must find who they are before they are both lost forever.
The story Sticks n' Stones and the Garden of Phea began as a short story that quickly became much more. When the characters say they are not done with you... then they are not done. I followed their lead and have brought to you a story I hope you will love.
