About the book

Book cover - Adelaide's secret world by Elise Hurst.

Adelaide leads a quiet life in the midst of the city. At night she listens to the song of the stars, but during the day she watches over the others like her—the still ones, the quiet ones, those who dance and dream alone.

Little does Adelaide know her secret world will soon be transformed into something unexpected and full of joy.
