Island author concludes ‘Hello There’ trilogy

Readers of the acclaimed “Hello There” series by Laurie B. Arnold will already be familiar with plucky Madison McGee, her magic fanny pack, and the MegaPix6000 — a TV she uses to teleport into whatever is playing on the screen.

In the third and final book in the series, “Hello There, I’m Coming Home!”, available now from Prospecta Press, Madison is on a fateful trip back to Bainbridge Island, where she grew up, to spend the summer with her best friends Noah and Violet.

It’s an emotional journey, shadowed with memories of her mother, and questions about her father’s disappearance. As she and her dog Leroy travel from New Mexico to the West Coast, she opens her fanny pack and discovers a photo of a black-haired boy. Even though she’s sure he’s a stranger, she intuitively knows that he needs her help.

Again, it’s the MegaPix6000 to the rescue, and the “Mighty Trio” enters a weird and frightening world of magicians, shapeshifters, and evil doers.

But the biggest mystery for Madison to solve is a personal one. Her search for answers leads her to discover that sometimes life changes in unimaginable ways, and that the unexpected can finally lead her home.
