The Stone Guardians

Middle grades novel;
Currently in draft

“No one is only one thing,” Asha’s father has always reminded her. It is a lesson she will need, as she begins to see the life in the stone around her and awakens her guardian snake. The stone guardians protect and nurture that which is most dear to their human counterpart. But what happens when they nurture the wrong thing?
