The Elementals by Saundra Mitchell

Ratings: (0)|Views: 162 |Likes:

Kate Witherspoon has lived a bohemian life with her artist parents. In 1917, the new art form of the motion picture is changing entertainment—and Kate is determined to become a director.

Meanwhile, midwestern farm boy Julian Birch has inherited the wanderlust that fueled his parents’ adventures. A childhood bout with polio has left him crippled, but he refuses to let his disability define him.
Strangers driven by a shared vision, Kate and Julian set out separately for Los Angeles, the city of dreams. There, they each struggle to find their independence. When they finally meet, the teenage runaways realize their true magical legacy: the ability to triumph over death, and over time. But as their powerful parents before them learned, all magic comes with a price. - See more at: http://www.hmhco.com/shop/books/The-Elementals/9780547853147#sthash.WnZxZE3M.dpuf

rdinary girls are untroubled by destiny.Unfortunately, neither Amelia van den Broek nor ZoraStewart Birch was entirely ordinary. They leaned against the dining counter, watching the whole of the world growsmaller as they rose into the air on the great Ferris wheel.Incandescent bulbs twinkled all around them, capturedstars that illuminated the car and its sparse elegance. Seats with velvet cushions and wire backs filled the gallery, lazilyspinning with no one to sit in them.Tearing off a bit of fried dough, Amelia pointed toward a white-columned building in the distance and said, “That oneright there. You should go look at the murals; I helped paint them.”
