Oksa Pollock
Volume 1 : The Last Hope

Visit the Oksa Pollock website

Thirteen year old Oksa Pollock used to think she was just like everybody else, until one night when everything changed…Alone in her room and feeling nervous about starting a new high school, Oksa is suddenly taken aback by strange occurrences: her desk catches on fire, her unpacked boxes explode… And she realizes that it is HER OWN doing!

She had always dreamed of becoming a ninja, and all of a sudden she has supernatural powers! Lost and scared, she doesn’t dare tell anyone about what’s happened…

But the strange events are far from over. On the same night, a strange mark appears on her stomach. Oksa confides her eccentric grandmother Dragomira and learns about her secret birthright: the Pollock family comes from Edefia, an invisible former utopia hidden somewhere on Earth. Oksa is their last hope, their only chance of going back.

Her life will never be the same again. Despite help from her friend Gus, how is she going to balance her ordinary high school life with fulfilling her stunning destiny?!

Warning, this book is magical. Once we get to know Oksa, we can’t live without her, or without the amazing Pollock family and the extravagant creatures of their world…

The story of this book is just as fantastic as its content. Oksa Pollock’s adventures were originally self-published by Anne Plichota and Cendrine Wolf, and immediately became an unprecedented success through word of mouth among its young readers. Pollockmania is only getting started…
