Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Aurelia has been a storyteller all her life. Her fascination with rites of passage, one of the greatest of which is moving from child to teenager, is what inspired her to make The Journeys of John and Julia: Genesis her first story by pen rather than voice.

"Our minds are so impressionable at this time," says Aurelia, "and what we experience shapes our adult life in ways we can't even imagine when it happens. I am also deeply convinced that we live in a magical world and that help is only a prayer away. We all have the potential to be 'superheroes' and do not have to be 'extra special' to create an awesome destiny for ourselves. And I want young adults and kids to know that. And for everyone else to remember it."

Although there is more about Aurelia at thejourneysofjohnandjulia.com, she encourages her readers to make up their own mind if it is in the least worthwhile to think about the author when her characters say it all.

From the Back Cover

For John and Julia, the magic is just beginning.
The Twenty-Two are watching.
Reality will never be the same.
It all starts after Julia's dad takes off to start a new family,
and her mom decides to ruin her summer, too. Instead of cheerleader
camp, Julia's sent to her grandmother's in the nowhere town of
Cedarwood Ridge. There she finds that her usual ice-queen act won't
cut it with her childhood friend John, who's a lot cuter than Julia
remembers and not half the geek she thought he was. Definitely
a romance in the making, if it weren't for the visitations from
her grandfather's ghost and John's infuriating openness to such
phenomena. Plus, a group of magical beings called The Twenty-Two
are secretly watching over John and Julia and making big summer
plans of their own. Including John and Julia's future role in saving
the world from their nemesis-to-be, the beyond-evil Niem Vidalgo
Oten.


"Cool new series...Anyone who is a fan of Heroes will definitely enjoy Genesis."
- Tim Kring, creator of the TV series Heroes and Touch

"A great read. Imaginative. Insightful. Heroic."
- Duncan Rouleau, creator of Ben 10

"I really loved the story. I definitely hope and think that PLL fans will identify."
- Janel Parrish, star of Pretty Little Liars and narrator of the John and Julia audiobook

Format: Paperback
About:
Julia is a thirteen year old going through a tough time. Her parents are recently divorced, her mom works long hours and now her summer trip to cheer leading camp has been cancelled. She is to stay at her grandmothers house on the lake at Cedarwood Ridge for the summer instead. Added to that, Julia's grandpa has recently passed away and the family is struggling with this loss.

John Freeman is six months Julia's junior, with his being a native of Cedarwood Ridge, these two have spent plenty of summers by the lake together. Now that they are thirteen, each is wrestling with teenage hormones and is worried if things will be different.

John and Julia are like night and day. She likes to shop at the mall and made the cheer leading team. John is bookish and shy.
On top of all that, the world that John and Julia inhabit is full of magic and mystery.
A group of other worldly beings called "The Twenty-Two" are watching over John and Julia and they want to answer Julia's prayers for happiness in her life. These twenty-two can bend and shape people's realities.

This is a coming of age story as well and in a world where there is magic and fantasy, baddies exist as well. John and Julia's adventures grab the attention of the evil Niem Vidalgo Oten who wants world domination.

My Thoughts:
What a fun ride The Journeys of John and Julia was! I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.
I enjoy YA Fantasy but I don't make much time to read this genre, so it's refreshing to find one that I really enjoyed.

The storyline is very entertaining. The book starts off with the twenty-two having a conference in the middle of the woods. This cast of magical beings is discussing Julia's dilemma.

What an amazing journey I took reading this book! Told in multiple story lines, The Journeys of J&J: Genesis is full of beautiful imagery told in very clever metaphors, transporting me easily into all the worlds, earthly and otherworldly. I couldn't put the book down wondering what would happen next. The character's personalities ranged from believable and compassionate, to witty and entertaining. But the best part of the book was the life lessons and teachings that were seamlessly woven into the plot making this a bible for all ages. This is a book I will read over and over again, highlighting insights to live my life by. Thank you, Aurelia, for sharing your imagination, humor, and wisdom. I anxiously await the next chapter in John and Julia's journeys.

I am a big fan of mystery stories (Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, The Mists of Avalon...) but "the journeys of john and julia" is BETTER than anything I have ever read in this genre. The story captivated me right from the beginning and is marvelously written and the descriptions are mind-blowing. So the only thing I can say to a mystery fan like me is: READ IT! READ IT! READ IT! If I could give 10 stars I happily would do it!! John and Julia are my new heroes now and I love their characters and what they experience is beyond imagination - and this is only the beginning!!! Thank God!!! I HAVE NEVER EVER waited so desperately for a sequel:)

i absolutely love this book! my daughter read John and Julia first and then passed it along to my husband and myself. as a Mom of a voracious teen reader, i'm always hoping that my daughter will read quality; a great story that entertains but one that also has meaning. in John & Julia we find that PERFECT BOOK. the characters are absolutely penetrating & we are happily seduced into their world. i reread many times the scenes with John and his mom, Sarah for the invaluable parenting wisdom. What a fantastic ride and i highly recommend for teens, parents, educators, and anyone who longs to be transported and uplifted. Enjoy the magic! So excited for the next Journey!

This is a book that defies placing into any one genre. John and Julia have adventures involving fiction, fantasy, speculative, urban fantasy and a host of other genres. It is enjoyable as long as you are willing to be bounced between dimensions, and various places on earth as well. Laugh out loud inside the minds of a 12, 13 year old then for comic relief go inside a couple of mom's, a grandmother and other interesting people. Way beyond 5 stars, perhaps a galaxy of stars.

Genesis is the most beautiful, magical, touching, entertaining, educating and inspiring book I've ever read!!! If I could I would give this book 10 Stars. I gain so much more insight and understanding about the problems I had growing up. The book brought and still brings so much love into my life and is changing my world into a better one. I entered a new world - a world of miracles. I'm so grateful. This book is heart opening and healing! Healing for the world<3
