"Journey to the Eye of Newt" is a fantastical and adventurous fiction book for middle-grade readers. The book shares the story of a young girl who moves to the United States from India. Upon arrival to her new home, things aren't easy for her. She has trouble fitting in, which is aggravated by dealing with epilepsy and not seeing eye-to-eye with her mom. However, when she buys a newt at a yard sale, everything changes. It turns out there is magic in nature's creatures, and the newt is the spark for an unforgettable and magical journey.
When ten-year-old Nirjery Webber arrives in the U.S. from India, trouble greets her. Kids tease her about her Indian culture, she can't make friends, there's conflict with her mom, and absence seizures caused by epilepsy complicate everything. Just when she feels like she's juggling fireballs, she buys a newt at a yard sale. Turns out, he's no ordinary newt. He's a two-foot talking, dancing magical newt. Unfortunately, he cannot stay. Danger is lurking in his land, and he has important business there. To help the newt return to his home in Newt Land, Nirjery calls on Goddess Lakshmi. Soon though, with problems growing at home, Nirjery decides to follow him. It seems like the perfect solution. But if she thinks things are going to be easy in Newt Land, she'd better think again: Doc Newton's regeneration cure has gone wonky, the Eye of Newt is missing, and evil forces are plotting a takeover. Will Nirjery have the courage to save the day? The worlds of fantasy and reality are about the collide.
