I believe that there is a special child in each one of us, and my hope is that readers will join Indigo and her friends on this adventure as they discover that we human beings have both strengths and struggles, and are all children of the same divine love.

Tawney S. Sankey releases new novel “Raising Indigo” in hopes of opening minds and hearts to the power of acceptance.

“There seems to be a consensus that a growing number of children today interact in the world in a very different way than in past generations. At times, they have been described as inattentive, restless, and oppositional and diagnosed with ADHD or Sensory Processing Disorder.” Explains author Tawney S. Sankey. “At other times they are described as having a heightened sense of intuition, morality, and sensitivity and are referred to as Indigo Children or Crystal Children.” In her new book, “Raising Indigo” (published by Balboa Press), Sankey creates an exciting fantasy/adventure that offers readers of all ages a holistic perspective of children today through the lens of acceptance.

“I believe that there is a special child in each one of us, and my hope is that readers will join Indigo and her friends on this adventure as they discover that we human beings have both strengths and struggles, and are all children of the same divine love,” Sankey further explains.

The only thing 12-year-old Indigo Lightner really wants is to be normal. Yet, this seems very unlikely for a girl who communicates with trees, heals with her hands and reads others thoughts and feelings by the color of light surrounding them. Her mother wants Indigo to stop her imaginary nonsense and act normal. But because Indigo’s highly sensitive nervous system has her in constant sensory overload, she has minimal control over her odd behavior, eliciting the mockery of peers, frustration of teachers, her mother’s disapproval and her own self-judgment and doubt. Until one day, an incident occurs in the middle school cafeteria, leading Indigo to discover that Dayton Smith, the teen next door, also possesses special powers.

Together, they embark on a fantastic journey, traveling on the backs of their magical Gris Gris flyers to the realm of Mictlan, where they meet other gifted children from indigenous cultures all over the globe, and discover their divine purpose in life.
