Operation Tenley (The Fair City Files #1)
by Jennifer Gooch Hummer
Publication Date: September 13, 2016
Publisher: Month9Books

Meet Tenley Tylwyth, an Elemental Teen born with the power to produce weather. Cool? Not really. Elementals who can create weather make Mother Nature angry. It’s time she got rid of them. Only one thing is standing in her way—Fair Ones. These ancestors of fairies keep kids like Tenley safe, but when rookie Fair One, Pennie, fails to do so, she’s forced to travel to Earth—a place where no Fair One wants to go. Now, Pennie has forty-eight hours to convince Tenley to give up her power. It won’t be so easy. Tenley’s got a way with wind. And after falling deep into Mother Nature’s gardens, where trees grow upside down and insects attack on command, a little wind might be just what Tenley needs to survive. Even if it kills her.

Excerpt
Chapter 18

Something sharp was jabbing into her side. Pennie opened her eyes.
Branches.
Poking her.
Real branches.
The kind that could only be found on Earth.
Pennie jolted upright and hit the ground.
She moaned. She’d landed in a tree. The one she’d just fallen out of.
Her head felt like it was splitting down the middle. She reached for her tool belt before remembering she didn’t have it. She lifted her wrist to look at her stopwatch, before remembering she didn’t have that either.
“Gavron?” Pennie whispered. “Gavron?”
But Gavron was not there. And there weren’t any slurps or drools coming from anywhere, either.
She tried to stand, but must have forgotten about the house on her back. Or maybe it was a small meteor. Something very heavy was preventing her from standing. She pushed against the ground with all her might and got to her knees.

Gravity, she remembered. That’s what it was.

Chapter 23

Tenley blew a quick breath. A gust of air swirled around Pennie’s hands. “Tenley! Stop!” Pennie pulled her hands back.
                “It’s just wind. What are you so afraid of?” Tenley put the screen in place again.
                “It’s not just wind. This is exactly why I’m here. You need to stop doing this.”
                Tenley grabbed her phone. “Okay, look. I’m sorry that for some reason I can make the wind blow. It’s weird, I know. But it’s also awesome. I’m not hurting anybody. I’m just drying my nails and stuff. So I don’t know why you have to go and get all freaked out about it.”
“Because.” Pennie lowered her voice. “Every time you create wind, you’re putting yourself in danger.” She tapped on her temple, careful not to smudge her nails. The hologram form appeared in front of her. “You need to sign this.”

Chapter 37

Pennie pulled herself up from the ground and sat on a fallen tree trunk. “Laraby. Where are we? What happened?”
“I can’t be sure,” Laraby answered, brushing himself off and standing. He had a smear of dirt on his face and a few rips in his robes. “But I think we might be in one of her gardens.”
Her? You mean, her her?” Pennie looked around. “We’re in Mother Nature’s garden?”
                “I believe so

6 Feet Under Books – Interview


Interview for Pennie

1.       How was it coming to Earth the first time?

Heavy! You guys don’t know how strong you are. Gravity weighs so much more than it looks like It does. But the colors and the smells on Earth? They’re amazing. Everything is pretty much greyscale in Fair City, although I heard it used to be more vibrant before the Superintendent left.



2.       48 hours doesn't seem like a long time here, how did it feel for you?

Considering I had to get Tenley Tylwyth to give up her wind power, it felt kind of frantic. But if I could have just hung out and eaten Mrs. Tylwyth’s ravioli, it would have flown by.


3.       After things calmed down are you likely to return?

I’d love to come back to Earth. I admit, I was afraid to go the first time. But I’m beginning to wonder if the Fairships want us to be wary of your planet. I’m going to have to look into that.
