‘The Leafwing’ by Deborah Copeland

LOS ANGELES, Calif. /Massachusetts Newswire – National News/ — “The Leafwing” (ISBN: 978-0981660233), by author Deborah Copeland, is a new YA fantasy novel that is making waves on the YA Fantasy charts. With a book trailer that lives up to the high-intensity drama and mythological thrill as the novel, it certainly is a great fantasy book to immerse yourself in.

Fourteen-year-old Amelia Ricci goes to school every day thinking that everything is normal. Same faces. Same friends. Same boring city. Soon she discovers that something is a bit off; that a pack of recluse Tony Hawk wannabes aren’t really human. But the scary part is only she can see them. She’s the only one who knows their secret. Things start to get really complicated because while she’s watching them, they’re watching her … at midnight, at dusk, even in her dreams.

“A delightful mixture of mythological creatures with a fresh twist set in an ordinary city with lots of funny and cool characters. If Twilight and The Lightning Thief had a baby, it would be The Leafwing,” says F. Dominguez, Amazon’s Top Reviewer.


“At a time when the global pandemic seems to have no end in sight many teens are escaping; they’re reading more, specifically YA Fantasy,” says author Deborah Copeland.
