   A twisted religion, The Purpose, deifies children for their deformities: a beautiful three-armed girl, a brave boy with one eye, the sad list goes on. Painted and costumed, they are worshiped on stage. Shy and exposed, they are ridiculed in the streets, often by the same faces. Glorious or repulsive? Gods or freaks? Which way will the identity crisis tip, and how deep will the psychological divide be dredged? Out of the city, through strange forests and dark dreams, we follow six young friends as they chase their answer. Lightning-lit and pulling moon into mountain, it awaits them at the top of the world.       Coming March 2017!

Areh is populated by over 100 original, full-page, full-color paintings and illustrations, with each page beautifully decorated by hand-drawn borders. Artists Mia Bergeron and Amelia Dregiewicz Kinsey have spent years working alongside the author to create the decadently lush visual experience of Areh.
