Everton Miles is Stranger than Me is a BEST BOOK for KIDS & TEENS!
So honoured to announce that the Canadian Children's Book Centre has selected my latest book, Everton Miles is Stranger than Me, as a Best Book for Kids and Teens this spring!
Thank you! Very, very happy to be included in such select company with great Canadian books.
Everton Miles is Stranger than Me is the sequel to my Red Maple 2015 nominated title, The Strange Gift of Gwendolyn Golden. The series is called The Night Flyer's Handbook.
Here is the press release from publisher Dundurn Press.
Here's the blurb:
"I wander around like any normal, paranoid, self-absorbed teenager. Do we all think we’re being chased by deadly entities, I wonder? Probably, but how many of us actually are?
Gwendolyn Golden, Night Flyer, floats over the cornfields all summer. What draws her to the same spot, night after night? All she knows is that change is coming: she’s starting high school plus there’s a strange new boy in town.
He’s Everton Miles and he’s a Night Flyer, too.
Soon the mismatched teenagers face dangers they never imagined, including a fallen Spirit Flyer, kidnap, and the eternal darkness of The Shade. How will Gwendolyn handle her new life and grade nine? With help from The Night Flyer’s Handbook and her strange new friend, it might not be that hard."
