This book is intended for children aged 7 to 12 years old.A young girl, Anna, receives a seemingly ordinary bracelet from her grandmother that shows glimpses of a dim future left in her hands to change. The power of the bracelet to predict the future and transform the young girl into other beings will keep children on the edge of their seat from page to page. “Now before you put this on, there is something very special about this bracelet,” Gramma said very seriously, so much so that it made Anna nervous. Gramma continued, “This is not like any other bracelet. When you wear the bracelet, you will notice it warm up at times and the stone will appear to move inside with a smoky hue. Then, as you are watching, it will show you a glimpse of the future. This is a future that is dark and grim. It will be in your hands to change the future for good.”Anna sat wide-eyed and a bit nervous. “Gramma, I don’t think I am the right person. I can’t change anything!”“Yes, you can dear. The bracelet shows the Changer, who used to be me, who to pass on this gift to. The bracelet knows even when we don’t. Now, it is your turn. You are the new Changer.”With the bracelet, Anna becomes the Changer and has many opportunities to make the world a better place.
