This is a preview to a book I am writing, Behind the Velvet Curtains, that no one else may copy. It is copyrighted to ME. I hope you enjoy it - M, this one is for you! :) Vivian is really based on you.
I move closer warily, the way you might approach a bomb you aren’t sure will go off. I push aside the clothes and wince when the hangers screech on the metal rung they hang on. Now I can clearly see it: the outline of a door."
Ever since Vivian Ali discovered a secret door in her closet, she is extremely satisfied to have found a personal refuge - just outside her room. A secret place, all to herself. Only when she makes a friend that matches her inquisitiveness, but with her own sense of cosmic belief, does she make a discovery that changes her view of the world, her perspective of teenage lives, and herself.
Her new friend Roxanne is absolutely ecstatic about the other world. Vivian knows what it reflects, and the dark underside of all the nonstop fun reveals itself to her, but Roxanne is being drawn in, and Vivian fears the consequences of becoming a permanent part of the parallel universe they never knew existed.
