A title in the new Orca Soundings series aimed at reluctant teen readers. Sixteen-year-old Shaw Sebring and his mother move halfway across the country to distance themselves from the truth of his father's recent suicide. But Shaw finds that the ghost of his father, a bestselling author, has followed him. Determined not to follow in his father's footsteps, Shaw soon realizes that who he comes from impacts his life.
We had the top down on our old Le Baron and the sun was beating from a sky that was nothing but blue. It was my mom's turn to drive, so I was stretched out in the passenger seat, watching Saskatchewan slide by, thinking there must be a couple dozen different ways for a guy to kill himself. Shaw Sebring is sixteen and trying desperately to understand and accept his father's recent suicide. Moving with his mother halfway across the county in an effort to distance themselves from the awful truth, Shaw lands in a new school and finds that the ghost of his father, a best-selling author, has followed him. Determined that he will not follow in his father's footsteps Shaw tries to chart his own course, until circumstances force him to accept that where - and who - we come from have an impact on what we become. This is Kristin Butcher's first foray into teen fiction. Her recent juvenile novels, Cairo Kelly and the Mann and The Gramma War, have both become bestsellers. A teacher turned writer and reviewer, Kristin lives in Victoria, BC.
