Introducing ... The Strange Gift of Gwendolyn Golden

So happy and excited to introduce my next book,
The Strange Gift of Gwendolyn Golden, coming from Dundurn Press in January, 2014. 


It's a coming of age story with a 14-year-old heroine from small town Ontario, who lives with her mother and younger twin brother and sister. She has a terrible temper, a dry wit, hates to read, plus she's going through puberty. And, on top of all that ...

" 'This morning, I woke up on the ceiling.'

So begins the strange story of Gwendolyn Golden. One perfectly ordinary day and for no explicable reason, she wakes up floating around her room like one of her little brother’s Batman balloons. 

Puberty is weird enough. Everyone already thinks she’s an oddball with anger issues because her father vanished in a mysterious storm one night when she was six. Then there are the false rumours about her being a drug addict. On top of all that, now she’s a flying freak.

How can she tell her best friend, or her mother? How can she live her life? After Gwendolyn almost dies one night flying too high and too fast, help arrives from the most unexpected place. And stranger still? She’s not alone."
