I love to find and promote young writers! In fact I facilitate a Young Writers of Christ which you can find here (Link). Know a young writer? I’d like to know them too. I can’t tell you how much I admire these students.
What’s this book about?
When fourteen-year-old Ash is forced to move, the world as he knows it turns upside down. Soulville is a strange town, and the house his mom inherited from a distant relative should be condemned. It’s spooky. Possibly haunted.
What Ash initially believes to be a string of bad luck has nothing to do with luck at all and everything to do with a demonic curse on his family. Does Ash have what it takes to break the curse, or will his life be cut short like those before him?
Who wrote this?
Ciella Naden wrote this book as a 13-year-old home-schooler. She battles dyslexia, but believes that with God, ALL things are possible. She also holds a high-green belt in karate, competes in air pistol competitions with the local 4-H, and runs her own crochet business. She loves Jesus and plans to write more stories about Ash in which he will be demon hunting.
What her mom, fellow author Cynthia P. Willow is saying on her blog:
While this book has fun paranormal elements in it, I must warn you that it has a clear Christian message. Demons are real. So are angels. This book deals with both. I am so very proud of my daughter’s willingness to witness for Jesus. It’s not always an easy thing to do.
Recommended for YA and mature middle readers, this looks like a read not to be missed.
