Synopsis:

A young boy on a rural farm in Pennsylvania loses his mother in a lightning strike and afterwards, some pretty fantastical sh!+ occurs. Think Something Wicked This Way Comes meets Bridge to Terabithia with a dash of The Chronicles of Narnia.

 

Genre: YA/Fantasy

 

Hook: Is death really a gift?

 

 

 

Fun Fact: Author Shawn Smucker lives in Pennsylvania and I’m from Pennsylvania. To me, this is fun!

 

Full Disclosure: Shawn reached out to me on Instagram and asked to send me his books, to which I responded, “Free books, yes please!”

 

Time of Year to Read: Summer and if you want the 4-D effect of sweat, I suggest reading outside.

 

Would I Recommend This to Other Busy Parents: Yes, the writing is beautiful and the story is intriguing.
