About the titles:
A Map to the Stars:
A portrait of a stolen childhood.
Once upon a time, Avery lived in a place filled with family, magic, and love. It ended when her mother came for her.
Ripped from the only home she ever knew, young Avery endures horrific exploitation, familial separation, and a childhood without the promise of a happily ever after.

We all live somewhere.
The children of Somewhere attend a prestigious Academy with a spectacular garden that celebrates its finest pupils. The history of the Academy is rich as chocolate, but things are not as they seem.
