Cameron Wheeler’s life is all mapped out: he’ll finish business school, return home to Vermont, get a job, and marry his high-school girlfriend. He’s packed away what he really wants—a career as a musician—because he knows it’s never going to happen. But Cameron's well-planned life is turned upside down when he walks into a musty jewelry shop in LA and meets the mysterious Apollo, who tells him to “follow his soul, not his past.” Apollo's magical presence spurs Cameron to discover and follow his true path, in life and in love.

Although I am generally not interested in paranormal narratives, I've just changed my mind with CJ Elliott's stellar Stepping Through. This is a magical novella, beautifully written and with just enough grounding in reality to keep me from rolling my eyes as I usually do with this sort of work. And the cover! so evocative of the feelings of the novella -- full of light and connection and mystery. Well done, CJane!
