Book One: The Door

Three things happened in Houston the fall of 1950 when King girls moved home: the bones of a factory the width of an entire city block, disappeared without a witness or a trace; every coma patient on the 7th floor of Memorial Hospital suddenly awoke; and Lena Bea King, Light Incarnate, Defender of the Galaxies, Guardian of the Stars, Empress of All That Was and All That Ever Will Be—turned ten years old.

When an alien explosion thrusts her mother into a coma, 9YO LENA embarks on a quest to find a door that contains the knowledge of all her previous lifetimes; but when old enemies return, Lena must decide—will she save her family or the entire world? 

The Door is a middle grade science fiction/fantasy novel perfect for kids 9 and up. It is the first book in The Memory Keep Series.
