“Story Bends is not a lightly, flowing read. It doesn’t do all the work for you by laying out a simple story in a simple structure. It asks you to “bend” your mind just as the story bends between reality, subconscious, memory, and spiritualism. I’d LOVE to be a fly on the wall when a group of young readers discuss this book. Children, as the story suggests, are so much closer and so much more empathetic to the worlds we cannot see than adults. This book offers hope for those who have suffered trauma and those who tend to them. It invites you to believe that with love, acceptance, and patience, we can all heal.
Teresa Funke

With poetic prose and a unique voice, Story Bends draws us into an adventure that leads us beyond the boundary of life and death, to the place where memories live. We root for Edward as he struggles to overcome his past trauma and takes us on a deep journey from darkness to light. We feel pulled along by the mystery and suspense… and the stakes grow higher the deeper we get. The story raises questions of spirituality, trauma, and healing as we explore the enigmas of Edward’s life.
