Congratulations to Horizons Fifth Grade Student Cybil JeanFils!

Congratulations to Cybil JeanFils, a fifth grade student in the Horizons program who published her first book, “Labor Day Adventure". Cybil said, "I wrote this book because I love adventure and mystery books. So, one day I combined mystery, family, and hope into a single book."
The book follows the story of the Namera sisters, Sara, Rose and Anna. During a visit to their grandparents’ house, the girls each receive a necklace that gives them magical powers. The girls must use their newfound powers to escape evil elves and save their grandmother.

As a delightful bonus, illustrations from the book are also available as a coloring section on the last few pages.

“I was really excited,” Cybil JeanFils said about hearing her book would be published by a friend of the family through his online publishing company, @billionpublish.

For her next book, she wants to write about holidays celebrated around the world like India’s Diwali, the Festival of Lights.
