Jazz and Ella
A Mouse Gate Adventure
Orlando Adventure tells the story of Jazz, a fourteen-year-old high school freshman, and his best friend, Ella, who meet on the way to Disney World. A supernatural being gives them each a magic amulet, which the children use to transport themselves to new and different worlds. They meet and deal many situations that cause them to face their fears and even terrors; that suggest ways that situations can be handled, and they see some of the choices that they will have to confront as they grow up.
Two teenagers, dealing with tragedy in their lives, find themselves pulled into life-changing adventures when a mysterious visitor gives them each a magic amulet. They find themselves having to reconcile bitter disappointments from their past; face the challenges of their lives now, and gain a look forward to their lives to come.
