New Arrivals

      Leah and Finley are starting high school in the fall so it’s their last chance to totally goof off as kids. They make a list of ten things they’ve always wanted to do and secretly try to complete them all, from building a throne and driving a car to finding buried treasure and attempting a world record.They’re set to have an amazing time but mental health struggles, growing responsibilities and self-esteem issues aren’t as easy to ignore now that they’re teenagers. This summer they’ll need to fight for their friendship and for their childhood dreams to last a little longer.

Mike was almost invisible in his city where millions lived. But that could all change with Josel’s arrival. Would you accept the word of Josel (Greed) if he were claiming he could save your city from imminent doom? Well, Mike does. He sets off on an adventure, rather he’s thrown into an adventure to find a lost city and thirteen pages all carrying the name Josel.

Mike awakes on warm sand running beside a long road and quickly catches a ride to a green island. He isn't alone for long on his adventure. His talkative nature lands him an accomplice; a young girl traveling solo called Lucy who passes on a stark message, “Trust no one,” then she steals a car.

Together, they navigate The Clenched Fist in fast cars, on foot

and by boat, evading the gangs, tackling the tricky celebrities, escaping the survivors, and staying clear of whatever is lurking in the dark.

                        There are discoveries with dark secrets, a sting in their plans and a mystery hanging from the ceiling in a small village. What is actually going on there?

             Will Mike discover the thirteen pages for Josel and have the heart to finish his task, or will the gray cloud descending over The Clenched Fist consume him before the hunter can close in on his prey?
