The Adventurer's Guide to Successful Escapes by Wade Albert White

Is there such a thing as too much adventure?

Anne is about to find out. She’s spent most of her 13 years scrubbing dirty hallways and laboring in dark mines at Saint Lupin’s orphanage, dreaming of finding her true home and of becoming an adventurer alongside her best friend, Penelope. Her dreams finally seem within reach…until Anne is denied her rightful ticket out of Saint Lupin’s.
Determined to leave the (possibly evil) Matron and a life of chores behind, Anne’s daring escape plan takes a surprising turn when a mysterious dragon medallion fuses to her hand. Now tasked with a Rightful Heir™ quest, Anne, Penelope, and their new questing partner Hiro have just days to solve unsolvable riddles and triumph over undefeatable foes --- or face the horrible consequences.  

Turn the page to discover an epic, action-packed adventure where worlds collide, danger lurks at every turn, and dragons aren’t nearly as innocent as they look (which is to say, not innocent at all).
