Medium Well Done

Medium Well Done (Dry Bones Publishing, 2022)

2023 Selah Award Winner — Purple Dragonfly Book Award Mention of Merit

In a desolate forest, the wind roars, stirring ancient trees and filling the air with an ominous presence. Nick, trembling, wraps his coat tightly around himself. Down below, a shadowy figure emerges from the midst of tombstones. Clad in a nightgown, the ghostly figure points directly at the two frightened teenagers concealed on a bluff. Nick’s skepticism wavers as the ghost implicates his neighbor in a murder. Nick wonders: Could it be true? Can the dead rise from their graves?

Soon after, Nick’s neighbor mysteriously disappears, forcing Nick to join forces with Jaz, a teenager who claims to possess the ability to hear the thoughts of the deceased. Together, they set out to uncover the truth behind the accusation and disprove the existence of resurrected spirits.

Guided by the insights of a Gullah woman who insists she can communicate with the dead —and whom Nick believes to be a fraud — the pair race against time to solve the puzzle. As the line between the realms of the living and the dead blurs, the two teens find themselves entangled in a perilous journey where every step unearths new dangers and uncovers the haunting truth that awaits them.

“This time Nick doesn’t have all the answers, but he asks the right questions. And what he learns is worse than any lies a fake fortuneteller might pass off as truth. I highly recommend Medium Well Done.” – Kim Childress, Book Editor, Girls’ Life Magazine

Parents can trust the Caden Chronicles to be safe reading for children. There is no sexual dialogue or situations, violence, or strong language, only a wee bit of humor. 🙂
