Sixteen-year-old Jett Hart refuses to accept the diagnosis that her mother is brain-dead. Yes, Mom’s long-comatose body seems like an empty shell. But there was that split-second, weird time Jett swears she lifted out from her own body and travelled to an indigo-colored, starry space where she felt Mom's presence.
Now, as Jett’s caretaking aunt threatens to pull Mom's life support, Jett must find this mysterious indigo place again and return her mother to her body before it’s too late. Only her schoolmate Farold, an amateur quantum physicist who may or may not give off a more-than-friends vibe, believes she can do this and has some ideas about how to help Jett get back “up there.”
Even if Jett manages to find Mom in the “indigo,” can she bring her back to her body? While also staying connected to her own “empty shell” below? And, what if . . . someone is trying to stop her?
A teen thriller offering astral projection cosmology, life cords, parallel universes, and wormholes, THE INDIGO is a wild trip through one person’s consciousness “above,” her interconnected reality “below,” and the psychological and potentially fatal dangers of being disconnected from both.
“The thing with The Indigo is the writing. It’s subtle, sweet and doesn’t skirt around the subjects of grief and loss. It’s not afraid to talk about a struggling family, emotionally, financially, and with each other’s relationships. What Siegel has created here is a beautiful book, filled with believable and relatable characters who have real feelings.... Siegel has written a triumph.” -- Sally Altass, Reedsy.
