Somewhere Beautiful
Book One in the Life of Willow

From the bestselling author of The Scavenger's Daughters comes a heart-warming novella-length story, inspired by real events set on a famous bridge where birth parents leave their children in the hopes of giving them a better future than they can provide. This story will leave you feeling the utmost warmth of compassion, and reaching for a box of tissue.
Sixteen-year-old Willow is strong, courageous, but weary of being under control of those in charge of the orphanage. Though she is used to being forgotten, she's grown tired of being labeled as unwanted. The years have been hard on her, making it impossible to get close to anybody, except for her best friend Kai who has made it all bearable. When bureaucracy threatens to tear them apart, Willow and Kai make a run for it. The only problem is, they aren't alone. They'll have to figure out if their excess baggage--a sassy girl who holds an extra chromosome--will be the glue that keeps them together as they navigate street life, or the obstacle that jeopardizes their newfound freedom.

A fascinating look into modern day orphanage life and what it's like to feel as though you belong to no one, Kay Bratt's novel, Somewhere Beautiful, is the first in the two-book Life of Willow series. In Somewhere Beautiful, Bratt weaves a story of loss and loyalty that will have you following three teens as they battle their way through life's obstacles in the search for the always elusive happily ever after.  

★ More China-inspired works by Kay Bratt include the worldwide bestselling series called Tales of the Scavenger's Daughters, A Chinese historical fiction duology called The Sworn Sisters, Kay's memoir titled Silent Tears; A Journey of Hope in a Chinese Orphanage, and a story about a Chinese adoptee called Chasing China; A Daughter's Quest for Truth.
