As she searches for the boy from the flower shop, the boy she fell in love with, Alice falls into our mysterious, mystical world that she must save from its own future. Guided by her music teacher, a young boy, an ancient sage, a water seller, a famous composer, the Pope and a girl from another planet, Alice is plunged into a life or death game for Earth, caught in an interplanetary war she does not want to be part of. Should she bother saving a planet already tagged for recycling, or should she follow her heart, fall in love, have babies and retire in a safe job, teaching music in a convent? Anyone with a sense of adventure or the utterly weird, will love this tale of mystery and imagination from storyteller and bestseller Stephen Skelton. If you truly believe that all wars should be stopped and peace is a natural birthright for all our children then read this book.
HALO is recommended for middle schoolers to old age, although younger readers would love it if their Mom or Dad screen out the really scary bits.
