"Edgewood was mind blowingly amazing." Olivia at Fictionally Obsessed ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Wandering the dark streets at night is Russ Becker's way of dealing with his relentless insomnia and the angst of life. But that changes forever the night he witnesses a strange astronomical event, then discovers he's developed incredible superpowers.
And he's not alone. Three others in his town--sexy Mallory, arrogant Jameson, and mysterious Nadia--have had the same experience and acquired intriguing powers of their own. As if Mallory isn't special enough with her good looks and high IQ, now she can control peoples' minds. Jameson thinks he's the coolest because he moves objects with his thoughts, and shy Nadia struggles to understand her new empathic abilities.
At first the four secretly relish their newfound gifts while keeping them hidden. However, things get serious when they learn they're being hunted by an organization that wants them for its own nefarious purposes. Russ has always picked his battles wisely, but when the bad guys threaten his family, they're about to find out they've made a big mistake. What transpires will change all of them in ways they never imagined.
The Vanderhaven family of Manhattan has it all: wealth, prestige, good looks, and a thriving business empire. But their seemingly perfect world is ripped apart when their younger daughter, eight-year-old Brenna, runs off after overhearing her parents’ arguing. Out on the streets, she quickly realizes she’s lost. Even more frightening, Brenna soon realizes that a man is following her.
Meanwhile, in a townhouse in Brooklyn, Callie Griffin is throwing a birthday party for her one-year-old son, Oliver. The joy of the day is ruined by her sister Lauren’s too short, drive-by appearance. Once close, the two sisters haven’t been able to move past a falling out which took place three years before.
When Brenna notices the strange man getting closer, she panics and takes refuge in the Griffin home, befriending their four-year-old daughter, Summer, who is waiting out the party upstairs.
As family and friends search for Brenna, her absence helps her father realize the importance of family, even as her presence in the Griffin home unwittingly sets in motion healing for a mother’s heart.
Five years have passed since sixteen-year-old Angie Favorite’s mother disappeared without a trace.

When his mother contacts Angie, begging forgiveness on her son’s behalf, the girl agrees to meet with her in hopes of finding answers to the seemingly random attack. But when she arrives at the family’s massive estate, she is overcome by an unshakeable sense of foreboding...
Part thriller, part coming-of-age tale, Favorite is an engrossing young adult novel in which nothing—and no one—is as it seems.

“A Limited Run is an incredibly gripping story, with a delicious edge of creepiness. I couldn’t stop reading it—easily one of my favorites this year! Another masterpiece from McQuestion!” – Frieda McFadden, #1 Amazon Bestselling Author
When billionaire Felix Worthington invites the five cast members of the TV show A Little Slice of Haven to recreate their roles twenty-five years later, they’re initially skeptical. It’s an unusual request, even for a self-professed superfan like Felix.
For several of them, playing a member of the Barlow family in the small town of Haven in the 1940s was an experience best forgotten. Meri Wetzel, who played a loving wife and mother, has spent the last two decades avoiding her TV husband, Jeff. And the actors who played their children each have lingering resentments of their own.
But living in a recreated version of the town in a warehouse in Montana, has its appeal, even knowing they’ll be filmed with hidden cameras as they improvise with other actors playing the townspeople. And the clincher? Two million dollars for each of them, provided they stay all ten days and remain in character the entire time. One by one, they set aside their hesitations and agree to the terms.
After all, with two million dollars they’d be set for life, and really what could go wrong?

“An engaging and charming story.” – Amazon review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
When Celia Lovejoy's grandmother moves in with her family, she tells her granddaughter magical stories of fairies living in the woods behind the Lovejoy home. Ten-year-old Celia believes they are just that- stories-until the day she receives an unexpected visit from Mira, a real, live fairy. Mira needs a favor in a matter of the utmost importance. It seems that Celia's house and the adjoining woods are in danger of being demolished to make way for a new highway.
The person behind this horrible plan? Vicky McClutchy, a spiteful woman who holds a childhood grudge against Celia's dad. Fairy magic can counteract this evil, but it will only work with Celia's help. Aided by neighborhood friend Paul, Celia begins a danger-filled quest that takes her out in the woods at night to face her greatest fears. This magical tale of a plucky girl combines an entertaining story with an underlying message about the power of ordinary kindness.
"Makes you think that magic really exists!" – Goodreads review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
When nine-year-old Paul explores the hole dug for his backyard swimming pool, he unearths a box containing a magic ring which grants wishes. He soon learns the hard way that wishes don't always turn out as expected!
“I simply fell in love with the story Celia and the Fairies, and Secrets of the Magic Ring is a delightful sequel, although it is also a wonderful stand-alone story. I continued to be surprised and thrilled as Paul’s story unfolded, especially when it took turns that I didn’t anticipate. Just when I was sure that it could not possibly end well, the cleverness of a nine-year old saved the day! This is an adventure that is sure to appeal to both boys and girls, and I can’t wait to read it to my students.”
-- Stacy Romanjuk, Fourth Grade Teacher at Hart Ransom School in Modesto, California
I bought this for my son after reading the reviews and he loved it. My son usually doesn't like books without tons of pictures that are about a car or vehicle of some sort. He was drawn into this story by the fast paced plot which has plenty of twists and turns and it has inspired him to want to listen to other chapter books. Yay!! Thank-you for helping my son to enjoy books! – C. Dowd Amazon reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Greta hat gerade einen Abschluss an ihrem College in Wisconsin gemacht und tritt eine Stelle als Praktikantin in der Vanderhaven Corporation an, die entfernten Verwandten von ihr gehört. Zumindest hat man ihr gesagt, dass es sich um ein Betriebspraktikum handelt, doch als sie in der Penthouse-Wohnung der Vanderhavens eintrifft, erfährt sie, dass sie tatsächlich von der Familie die Aufgabe erhält, die unberechenbare 23-jährige Tochter Cece zu begleiten, die wider Willen in den sozialen Netzwerken zum Promi geworden ist.
Dalton Bishop hat ein Geheimnis. Obwohl er aus privilegierten Verhältnissen stammt, hat er sich auf das soziologische Experiment eines Lebens als Obdachloser in New York eingelassen. Auf dem Times Square begegnet er Greta, die die inkognito umherspazierende Cece begleitet, und rettet Cece vor einem Ladenbesitzer, der sie des Ladendiebstahls bezichtigt. Um sich für diese Kavalierstat zu revanchieren, lädt Cece Dalton ein, sie zu einer äußerst förmlichen Wohltätigkeitsgala namens The Forgotten Man Ball zu begleiten. Während sich der Abend entfaltet, wird man immer vergnügter, Probleme der Vergangenheit werden gelöst und jemand findet die Liebe.
