Kennesaw Mountain News
Kennesaw Mountain featured in young adult novel, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming by Sara Crawford. In the novel–which is set in Marietta–Sylvia hikes Kennesaw Mountain frequently. The novel is book 2 in The Muse Chronicles series, with book one being We Own the Sky.
To find her Muse, she must first find herself.
Sylvia Baker used to live for music: constantly listening to artists like M83 and Moonlight Bride, writing songs, and playing drums in a band. But now, the soundtrack of her life is silence. If she lets the music back in, she’s worried she will return to her delusions about the Muses–the mystical beings who inspire artists to create art. She’s worried she’ll have to face the wounds of losing Vincent, her Muse, her love.
She tries to move on, immersing herself in the real world–working at the grocery store, mending her relationships with her friends and her father, and developing a new love for hiking. But in her dreams, she is forced to face the questions growing in her heart.
What if they never were delusions? What if a vicious battle between the traditional Greek Muses and modern Earthly Muses tore her from the world of the Muses? What if she never lost Vincent at all? And what if he’s the one who needs to be saved?
