At long last, the often-requested sequel to LIVING IN SECRET — the children's novel Publisher's Weekly called "courageous, thought-provoking," first to feature a realistic and positive portrayal of alternative families by a mainstream press when originally published — has arrived! Amelia Monet longs to be back at the crooked, yellow Sunshine House in San Francisco, safe and cozy and well-loved with her mother and her mother's quirky partner Janey...but the law will not allow it. Her father has custody. However, a dad having sex with his own kid is a crime, isn't it? And aren't criminals supposed to be in jail?

With surprise appearances by not only characters from the original novel but also from Salat's most recent THE SKIN OF WATER: Defending The Dreamcatchers, ESOTERICA is another unconventional masterpiece of reality for today's millennial teens...and everyone who cares about them.
