Mackie Burt has always believed we make our own luck. From a very young age, Mackie nurtured her two loves: reading and acting. Realizing that you control your own destiny, she left "traditional" high school at 16 and moved out to Los Angeles, where she finished her degree in three years, while writing her dream acting role in her first novel, ABOVE, the first in a series of 4 novels about one of life's final transitions.
When 17 year-old Callie’s life is suddenly cut short, she “wakes up” ABOVE, and soon discovers it’s not exactly what she expected. Still reeling from the fact that she is, in fact, no longer living, Callie learns that she’s also part of a select group of recently-passed teens fated to become Guardians.
