An INDIE NEXT GENERATION BOOK AWARD Finalist, He Knew a Firefly has been described as lyrical, powerfully emotional and suspenseful.

Death is inevitable, but what if you could see the exact moment or place you would die. Would you make the best of the time you had, or live in fear, every day? Those are the questions Akshara battles. Because she has an extraordinary curse.

Six-year-old Akshara watches her mother die. At thirteen, she watches her best friend die. She’s heartbroken, but their deaths don’t surprise her. She has a secret ─ she can glimpse into the future of those she loves. One defining thing, but that’s enough. Thus, every life she touches is thrown into turmoil, friends abandon her, and she is overwhelmed by more guilt than she can bear. Then, one day, she sees her own unhappy fate.

Does Akshara bring upon her loved ones the misfortunes they blame her for? Will Akshara be able to save herself after she has lost everyone she loved? Or will she lose her sanity as her mother did?

A gripping, evocative, and sometimes surreal page-turner, He Knew a Firefly follows Akshara as she tries to light unknown pathways for her loved ones, before being ultimately consumed by the flames herself.
