I want young girls to see a powerful character who has a positive attitude.

Unfortunately in this day and age, when people hear the term 'teenage girls', they immediately jump to negative stereotypes like those portrayed in “Mean Girls.”

Sandra Addis was a teacher for 33 years and saw many young women grow strong, smart and cooperative as they moved on to do wonderful things. Her new book, “3 Sprites and a Bed,” aims to help inspire pre-teen girls by providing them with a positive role model in main character Emily.

Emily discovers three magical sprites living in a bed she finds in an antique store. They plead for her help in saving them, but the only way she can is by buying the bed. This leads to a host of adventures for Emily, providing her with life lessons and a greater sense of responsibility. Emily must find a job, overcome unpredictable obstacles like breaking her arm, study for finals and maintain a positive relationship with her parents.

“I want young girls to see a powerful character who has a positive attitude, is cooperative, takes challenges head-on and always wants to be helpful,” Addis said.

Mixing the whimsy of children’s fantasy with real-world lessons prepping young women for their transition into adulthood, “3 Sprites and a Bed” aims to inspire strength, intelligence and a desire to help others.
