Seven Hours: Challenge Accepted will open up your senses! A beautifully written novella about a disabled girl.
One pill every 7 hours. That could be all it takes to give Chanel the chance to finally see the world around her.

Keeping the secret of the experimental treatment close to her chest, she is able to fool everyone but her hawkeyed bodyguard, Leon, that has now been assigned to protect her.
Chanel does not want a bodyguard, but will she get more than she bargained for?
What a beautiful novella. Seven Hours, Challenge Accepted is a YA Contemporary novella about Chanel who us blind and needs to deal with her visual handicap.
Angelina Kerner is a fabulous writer. She crafter Chanel wonderfully, making her feel real. The struggles she goes through, the triumphs she makes, all felt real. Angelina Kerner didn’t just write without doing any research – she clearly knew her stuff and handled this theme with authenticity.
I loved watching Chanel’s journey. This story is short, but I couldn’t put it down. I love the themes of this novel, and I highly recommend checking it out!
Angelina Kerner‘s writing career started at a young age when she discovered that her creativity could be channeled through a bit of ink and paper.
She moved around during her young years from Novosibirsk and Kaluga Russia to finally settle in the San Francisco Bay Area, California. This startling contrast between the fierce snow of Siberia and the bright sun of the American West is a crucial source of inspiration and humility: the forces of people is to be found not only in their spirits, but in their land too.
Angelina’s curiosity in the human condition led her to pursue courses in psychology and blossomed into a master’s degree in Topographical science. It was with a burning fire that she rejected the status quo offered to her generation and after many meaningless jobs she decided that writing could be the canvas in which she could express this dichotomy. While working full time behind counters and registers, she persisted in supporting her family, her full time coursework and her creative dreams.
She dared to believe in her talents and most importantly in her ability to make a real mark into this world. Like any creative soul, there was time for doubts, self-loathing, loneliness but never fear. She worked on countless experimental narratives, universes, genres, until her voice crystalized into her first published narrative. She is now the author of Deity’s Soulmate and Seven Hours: Challenge Accepted. Her next project involves a competition for a beautiful phoenix. Angelina currently divides her time between her family, work, writing, lots of cats and two celestial dragons.
