ExcerptTwo Degrees from Zero: A Snowboarding AdventureBy M.J. StewartPublisher: Clan PublishingRelease Date: November 11, 2013Genre: Children’s Action Adventure/Middle GradesLength: 155ISBN: 978-0-991185-02-3ASIN: B00GODMSJSAdd to GoodreadsAbout the book:Two friends face danger in the cold Colorado mountains.M.J. Stewart has written an entertaining adventure story featuring two young teens who are easy to like and easy to relate to. Derek is struggling with very serious issues and his best friend Janae is right there with him the whole way. Even with terrible blizzards, abandonment, dangerous tough guys after Derek, and an almost-step-dad that he doesn't like or trust, Derek, along with Janae, takes on the tough job of doing what needs to be done.
Derek whispered, “And how are we gonna leave? Maybe Mom and Thomas will know what to do. Let’s be real quiet until they get here.”
“Hope they get here quick.” Janae said in a shaky voice. “Does he have a gun?”
“Don’t see one.” Derek hugged Janae; her body trembled with emotion. “Bummer how this trip is going downhill.”
“Seriously downhill,” Janae said. “Is he dead?”
“Duh…dead people don’t snore. But maybe we should see if he’s okay.”
“You go,” Janae said.
Derek flinched as the man inhaled. “Wait, his chest moved.”
“Are you sure?” Janae asked, but kept her distance.
“Is blood running down his forehead?” Derek asked.
“I see red.”
“Let’s get a better look. Maybe he’s just sleeping.” Derek took one step in the man’s direction and stopped.
“Why are you stopping? You’re supposed to be the strong, brave one.” Janae jumped behind Derek and tried to shove him closer to the man. But Derek stood firm. “You’re scared as I am,” Janae said.
“Not either,” Derek said and turned his face to her. “See my face, I’m not scared.”
“Why are you chewing your lip?”

How cool~ adventure in the snow. I'd be not only scared but miserable because I hate snow lol.ReplyDelete
I understand why lots of people don't like snow, but for me it is magical. I grew up in the south and the snow there was mostly ice, and we were miserable. But Colorado's snow is like powder and beautiful and so much fun to play in. Thanks for stopping by.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great read!!ReplyDelete
