RIGHT - The wonderful and talented Anne Riley has released her first novel, The Clearing, into the world. The story:
Natalie Watson doesn't believe the reports about the way her parents died. In fact, she's not sure she believes in much of anything these days. But after moving from her home in Georgia to her aunt's boarding school in Maine, solving the mystery of her parents' deaths is just one of several things on her mind. When she's not fending off attacks from the popular kids or taking refuge in the pages of a novel, she ponders the rumors circulating about a certain boy in her math class... a boy with fiery red hair who never speaks to anyone.
Despite suspicions that he may have murdered his sister a year earlier, Natalie finds it impossible to stay away from Liam Abernathy - especially when he confesses to knowing something about her parents. Soon she's following him into the forest, where things happen she doesn't understand... things that shouldn't be possible....
As Liam's story unfolds, Natalie realizes she's more connected to him than she ever thought - and not everyone she counts as a friend can be trusted.
Sounds great, right? Well you can own your very own copy in paperback or e-version.
WRONG - I couldn't do one more blog post without mentioning poor Charlie Sheen. I recall a fresh faced youth, on drugs and sitting in a police station in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
|Well, well, well. It seems we've come full circle now haven't we?|
