So right and SO Wrong


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? 
I hope you all have a glorious weekend. I'll be taking the kids to see the Star Trek exhibit at our local science center (I'm such a fangirl). They have the Captain's chair from the original TV series! I promise to take pics and share them with you next week.

I saw the Star Trek exhibit in Detroit and it was kind of disappointing. There's not enough interactive stuff and enough stuff in general to make it worth the while. Except for sitting in the chair. That was pretty cool.

I miss the Star Trek exhibit in Vegas. It was AWESOME. Hope the one you get is see is just as great!

And...Charlie Sheen...yeah. I think you got it about right. :)

To sit in the Captain's chair...My hubby would kill for that chance. Who am I kidding? I would too. ; )
Have fun!

All the best to Anne Riley. The book sounds gripping and slightly harrowing.

Hubby and I would love to visit the Star Trek exhibit. :O)

I just found out we are not permitted to take pictures inside the exhibit. I will try to find a way around it. I must have proof that I sat in Kirk's chair : )

Danette said...

That sounds like fun! We were jsut talking today about attending the StarCon in April, I think. Can't wait to see the chair!

Hope you had fun at your Star Trek exhibit! I'm a Star Wars geek.
And thanks for the info on the book! Sounds interesting!

Alison Stevens said...

I need to read Anne's book--it sounds terrific! Did you manage to get pictures of the chair?

Lydia K said...

I was just talking to someone about the Ferris Beuller cameo!

Congrats to Anne on her novel. I've been seeing it around the blogosphere. It's definitely on my TBR list!

The book sounds really good.

Charlie Sheen's best part may have been in Ferris Beuller's Day Off. Yes, full circle - ha!

Never been to a Star Trek exhibit, wandered around a Doctor Who one which was loads of fun. Hope you have a great time.
