With all this advanced technology in today's world, children are stuck in digital world instead of accepting what really surrounds them. Wishing to help children with little to no confidence, Sunayna Prasad is proud to announce her new children's novel, Alyssa McCarthy's Magical Missions: Book 1: From Frights to Flaws.


Twelve-year-old Alyssa McCarthy can no longer stand the toughness of her uncle and wants a better life. But one day she discovers not only the existence of magic, but also a villain hunting her down.

The villain uses magic and magical technology to kidnap Alyssa to the Fiji Islands. As much as she wants to go home, she has to face some dangerous challenges first. Not only that, the villain himself must also be defeated.

Can Alyssa succeed, even with the help of her mentors?

“Many children struggle with tough lives and stress. Literature is a useful way to understand how rough situations can be handled. Often times, the characters start off with either miserable or ordinary lives until something happens to them. By the end of the stories, the characters have changed, thus being stronger at what they've achieved,” Prasad says.

The novel has also received a couple of pre-publication reviews.

“So emotional and heartwarming! I could feel the tough life Alyssa has been going through!” says one reader, reviewing the book on

“Very captivating and entertaining book. Congratulations!” says another reader, just as amazed.

From so much success, the author plans to continue this book into an on-going series. Readers are begged to keep up with news about future books in this series.

Alyssa McCarthy's Magical Missions: From Frights to Flaws will be available this summer.
