Glow of the Fireflies by Lindsey Duga is a YA Fantasy story of magic, a valley, and romance!
“Briony never planned to go back to the place she lost everything.
Firefly Valley, nestled deep within the Smoky Mountains, is better kept in her past. After an unexplained fire gave Briony amnesia, her mother disappeared and her dad moved them to Knoxville.
But now her grandmother needs a caretaker and Briony’s dad volunteers her to help. The moment she returns, her whole world shifts. She feels a magical connection to this valley, as if it’s literally part of her somehow.
And when she meets a hot guy who claims he was her childhood friend but now mysteriously keeps his distance, Briony starts piecing together her missing past…and discovers her mother didn’t leave to start a new life somewhere. She’s trapped in the hidden world within the valley.
Now, Briony will do whatever it takes to rescue her, even if it means standing up against dangerously powerful nature spirits. Even if it means giving up her first love.”

How I Read It: eARC requested from the Publisher
*Disclaimer: I requested a copy of this book from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. All of my reviews contain my honest opinions only and are not influenced in any way.
If you want a lighter, enchanted adventure, this book is for you!
When she has to leave her life to help her grandmother, the memories begin to reawaken a world where magic exists. She is transported into this other realm of imagination and adventure. There is a ton of friendship woven in and their teamwork helps to navigate through the twists and turns of the plot!
I enjoyed the writing style which was a great break from the darker, more intense novels I’ve read lately. If you’re looking for a whimsical world to transform from reality, I recommend this author!
I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars.
