Change is in the air when young Liya learns her mother is planning to move them from New York City to her hometown of Rancho Cucamonga. Her Grammy and Grandpa are excited, but Liya doesn’t want to leave all her friends at the Performing Arts School. She looks for guidance from her father, but he only gives her a mysterious message about a secret garden.
Falling asleep and dreaming, Liya is transported and lost in an imaginary land inhabited by the Lilypas, beautiful giant dancing butterflies. Ruled by Queen Lilypas, Liya is offered help to get home and introduced to a cadre of comical characters who will keep her safe from the OooAaas and Bat Faith. With help from Libelle, Jack the Turtle, Thorn the Twisted Beetle, Sir Snobby Snail, the Lilypas and others, Liya must go on a quest to find her way home. Along the way, she learns to fly with joy – overcoming her fears and learning to believe in herself while respecting the differences in others.
