“I needed something distracting to do, so I fetched my small toolbox from its shelf in my closet and sat at my desk. Pieces of gray plastic covered a mat over the wood surface. For a challenge, I’d bought five different space and air models, then catalogued the parts and designed my own custom starship with them.
Because that was my dream. Ethan wanted to go to Mars, and I wanted to build the things to get him there.”

PORCELAIN (Harper Revolution Series, Book 1) by Lee French
Read by Gabrielle de Cuir
Eighteen-year-old Emma Harper misses her brother. Two years ago, the bad news—MIA—killed a piece of her heart. Her father ignoring her dreams of building spaceships and demanding she become an accountant killed another. Rudderless, Emma drifts through a life she doesn’t want with friends who pretend to care.
When a bizarre event sends her sailing across the universe, she’ll have to decide what matters most to her. Life or death, the universe doesn’t care. But does Emma?
“Not only is the story inspiring, but the imagination in this book is amazing.” –From Leo Duplessis’ Amazon review of PORCELAIN
“Pulsing light from the wormhole faded. The mirror’s surface revealed a coffee shop, static hazing the image in and out. I’d visited a place like it a thousand times. Black and brown dominated the decor with white and green accents. At the counter, a barista taking a woman’s order glanced over her shoulder and squinted in my direction.”
