Author Raeann Gillberg's first children's book showcases a deep love for action-packed narratives

SAN ANTONIO - s4story -- TouchPoint Press is delighted to debut new author Raeann Gillberg and her first novel, The Ageless Gem (November 12, 2021). Written when Gillberg was just 11 years old, The Ageless Gem begins the foundations for The Ageless Gem Series, a set of narratives that bridges reality and history for avid elementary-school readers.

In weaving magical realism around the alluring history of one of the seven wonders of the world — Petra's rock-cut architecture – The Ageless Gem transforms a casual family vacation into a transfixing adventure of mystery and magic. Publishing The Ageless Gem at fourteen-years-old, Gillberg is granted an opportunity to showcase the deep love she's held for writing throughout most of her young life. A narrative for 3rd through 5th graders, Gillberg's The Ageless Gem brings a relatable voice to learning readers just beginning their trek into the overwhelmingly vast world of fiction.

About the Book
Peter and his family are visiting Petra, a very old structure carved out of a cliff in Jordan and one of the seven wonders of the world. But for Peter this is anything besides a normal family vacation. From Peter's strange dreams to Lilly's crazy theories, nothing seems to make sense. Will Peter look past what he thinks he knows and find something inside himself he didn't know was there? Will he unravel the mystery of The Ageless Gem, or is it nothing more than an ageless bedtime story?
