Salim’s Battle by Avery Yue

Calli has been trapped on the island of Baraka for what was two years in her life – but was actually two decades. When she learns about the evil snake named Salim who is trying to create a fictional army to take over the worlds, Calli has to take action. She teams up with Nick, the mischievous kid who fell to her island after touching a blackboard, and Archie, the wizard who is really bad at spells, but actually pretty good at comic relief. They battle lava monsters, meet funny people, and add an opinionated wolf, a small dragon, and a sad frog to their team. Calli’s story will take readers into a place of confusing worlds, including a land of lava and a backwards planet, wizards, talking pets, and a chipmunk who turns people evil.


 All proceeds from book sales will benefit our scholarship program for future Your Name In Ink young authors.
