From the #1 bestselling author of the Inspector Lynley crime novels comes her first book for young adults. After her mother abandons her on Whidbey Island, Washington, a 14-year-old girl with psychic abilities meets a Ugandan orphan with a secret.
From the Publisher:
The first young adult book by a #1 New York Times bestselling author
|Whidbey Island may be only a ferry ride from Seattle, but it's a world apart. When Becca King arrives there, she doesn't suspect the island will become her home for the next four years. Put at risk by her ability to hear "whispers"--the thoughts of others--Becca is on the run from her stepfather, whose criminal activities she has discovered. Stranded and alone, Becca is soon befriended by Derric, a Ugandon orphan adopted by a local family; Seth, a kindhearted musician and high school dropout; Debbie, a recovering alcoholic who takes her in; and Diana, with whom Becca shares a mysterious psychic connection.
|This compelling coming-of-age story, the first of an ongoing sequence of books set on Whidbey Island, has elements of mystery, the paranormal, and romance. Elizabeth George, bestselling author of the Inspector Lynley crime novels, brings her elegant style, intricate plotting, incisive characterization, and top-notch storytelling to her first book for teens.
Author Bio
Elizabeth George
Born in Warren, Ohio, Elizabeth George graduated from the University of California at Riverside with a B.A. in English. Having received a master's degree in counseling from the California State University at Fullerton, George went on to teach in high schools, and then in colleges after her first book, "A Great Deliverance", was published in 1988. Though born and raised in America, she is best known for the mysteries she sets in England. Her novels featuring Inspector Thomas Lynley and Sergeant Barbara Havers follow the classic form of the British cozy mystery, updated with a broader depiction of violence and a deeper concern with her characters' emotional maturation. Tracing her investigators' lives from one novel to the next, George writes patiently, carefully crafting the inner motivations of both her criminals and her investigators. Her heroes often suffer from a physical disability or deformity, a metaphor for their psychological and emotional wounds.
