Poignant Coming of Age Books for Teens and Adults Alike

The Light in the Trees

Jeff Van Valer

$1.99

"The Light in the Trees is one of the special ones, the rare story that stays shimmering and bright in your mind days after you finish reading it. It's most highly recommended." --Jack Magnus, Reader's Favorite "I enjoy fiction that pulls you into another place or era and keeps you completely fixated and this book does that." -Reader review "I could not wait to see what happened on the other side of the Lake…Highly recommended…absolutely cannot wait for…Jeff's next book to come out!" -Reader review In 1970, twelve-year-old White Birch Camp veteran Ted returns to his once-favorite place. It is months after his mom's violent death, and he's convinced his dad is dumping him for the summer. Or maybe for good. But he immediately meets his two best friends, Zeke and Neil. Karen, the director's daughter, notices him, and he finds her more alluring than the camp's panoramic view of Loon Lake. He also finds Hoss, an alarmingly intelligent, charming, and manipulative risk-taker with a knack for criminal mischief and an unusual vendetta. In this coming-of-age thriller, follow Ted as he daydreams with Karen of a secret trip to the lake's far shore, grows with the healing power of true friendship, and dives into psychological warfare with a young sociopath whose guile and need to control eventually turn deadly. "I love the author's writing style. The descriptions naturally drew me into the book…Thankfully, there's a second book being released towards the end of this year." -Reader review "Such a delightful and suspenseful book that I really didn't want it to end." -Reader review

Slings & Arrows /Gone Omnibus Edition

Julie Elizabeth Powell

$1.99

Although Slings & Arrows and Gone are available separately, I felt that as the stories are undeniably linked, it would be useful to combine the two stories - one true, one fantastical answer - in one volume. In so doing, I hope that after reading the events of the first, your mind will be open to the possibility of the truth of the second. Whatever you believe in this world, I'm sure that by the time you've read to the end of both tales, you will never think the same again.
