****Wattpad Featured Story*****
Ana Bradan doesn't know why her family is being targeted by protests from an increasingly angry mob. She wonders if it's because she's shy and only knows a lonely, friendless existence as "Awkward Ana" which makes her a target for bullying. She never suspects her loving father is the cause of her misery, until one day he confesses that he once participated in a brutal massacre which has made all the Bradans a target for retaliation, and Ana literally bears his burden. Rather than risk her death at the hands of an angry mob, Ana's father manages to send her and her older sister Tara to Gaborgoon, a druid school run by one of his friends.
But despite the well-wishes of Master Cynbel, the school's leader, Ana cannot fit in. Bullied relentlessly by both students and teachers, she is held under suspicion when an unknown creature begins attacking animals and students on the school grounds. She soon learns that those who offer her comfort are also those who need her to serve a higher purpose she doesn't understand. It's up to Ana to resist the temptation to be free of her burden if it means hurting innocent people and killing her father.
