No One Dies in the Garden of Syn (The Garden of Syn #1)
by Michael Seidelman.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy.
Publication: April 26th 2016 by Chewed Pencil Press.
Synthia (Syn) Wade is a teenage girl who struggles with cystic fibrosis, an incurable life-threatening disease. One day she is pushed into a pond by an unseen figure and wakes up in a new world – a mysterious garden where illness and death don’t exist.

Welcomed by the garden’s residents and now free of her symptoms, Syn decides to stay. But, before long, she realizes that this apparent utopia holds many dangers and dark secrets.

Surrounding the garden is a fog that Syn is warned never to enter. She encounters bizarre creatures that defy reason. And always lurking in the shadows is a masked woman - a woman who may have a connection to the disappearance of Syn’s parents many years ago. A woman whom no one will speak of, but whom everyone fears.

While No One Dies in the Garden of Syn, Syn will soon discover that some fates are worse than death.

From Chapter 12
A butterfly darts across the pond, fluttering its wings gently before settling on a lily pad. I study the lawn around me and see an ant marching past. There is a spider perched on a weed growing out of the grass next to me.
The spider is beige, has a larger than normal head and thick legs. A shriek escapes my lips at what I see on closer inspection. This isn’t an ordinary spider at all. Its body is spiderlike but its four upper legs look like human arms with hands. Its four lower legs look like human legs with feet. Then there’s its face—its teensy face is that of a little boy whose jaw is dropped wide in shock at seeing me. Probably just as much as mine is at seeing him.
