The Doylestown Bookshop will be hosting a book signing with Donna Galanti on June 6th at 2pm. Donna will be discussing and signing her newest book, Joshua and the Lightning Road, the first book in her new middle grade series. Donna is also the author of two adult novels, A Hidden Element and A Human Element, both of which are part of The Element Trilogy.
Stay away from the window, don’t go outside when it’s storming and whatever you do, do not touch the orb.
Twelve-year-old Joshua Cooper’s grandpa has always warned him about the dangers of lightning. But Joshua never put much stock in his grandpa’s rumblings as anything more than the ravings of an old man with a vast imagination. Then one night, when Joshua and his best friend are home alone during a frightful storm, Joshua learns his grandpa was right. A bolt of lightning strikes his house and whisks away his best friend—possibly forever.
To get him back, Joshua must travel the Lightning Road to a dark place that steals children for energy. But getting back home and saving his friend won’t be easy, as Joshua must face the terrifying Child Collector and fend off ferocious and unnatural beasts intent on destroying him.
In this world, Joshua possesses powers he never knew he had, and soon, Joshua’s mission becomes more than a search for his friend. He means to send all the stolen children home—and doing so becomes the battle of his life.
Donna Galanti began writing at seven, falling in love with fantasy worlds spun by C.S. Lewis and Roald Dahl. Before writing full time, she worked many jobs, including news reporter, pet store assistant, and U.S. Navy photographer in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. She now writes children's books, including Joshua and the Lightning Road series (Month9Books 2015). She currently lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, son, and two cats.
