“A tense, multi-layered mystery that kept me reading late into the night.” – E.B. Wheeler, award-winning author of The Haunting of Springett Hall and Born to Treason
“We never knew there could be people in the orchard. Dangerous people.”
When a mysterious explosion kills her sister, Salem becomes convinced the death was no accident–it was a conspiracy. But no one else at her high school believes her, and all she has so far are theories and clues. With Carrie’s killers still out there, Salem’s not sure who she can trust. If she can’t she prove she’s right before it’s too late, the conspiracy might take another life—hers.

So what’s it like writing a book featuring a Hispanic, male, poverty-stricken gang member? Well, as a white, female, middle-class Mormon, I’ll tell you that it involves lots of life experiences and some research. Some people want authors to only write about characters who look like us. I have some thoughts to challenge that idea, for authors who look every way under the sun.
