Danielle Stinson will debut her new novel, “Before I Disappear” at Scrawl Books tomorrow (Tuesday).
The young adults novel follows a young woman as she tries to find her little brother after her town disappears into thin air.
The author will take part in a discussion about writing science fiction for young adults and publishing her first novel.
MacMillan Publishers wrote the following about Stinson’s book:
Rose Montgomery parks her family’s trailer in Fort Glory, Oregon with one goal: to carve out a new life for herself and her little brother, Charlie. They need a fresh start for their family, and she thinks she’s finally found it in a town where nobody knows them.
But Rose’s plans come crashing down when, in an instant, Fort Glory disappears and every person in town vanishes into thin air–including Charlie.
Rose and four other teens become trapped in the Fold, a patch of woods caught halfway between the real world and the lost town. In the Fold, a mysterious force suspends the laws of physics, and everyone’s inner darkness has the power to kill.
To survive the Fold, Rose must unravel the clues Charlie sends her from the missing town. And Rose has to find Charlie soon–or he’ll be gone forever.
The event is set for 7 p.m. at the bookstore, which is located at 11911 Freedom Drive.
