A Story of Friendship and Light… Lydia has been in dark places, and she still feels alone. So when she hears the old shopkeeper next door weeping, her heart goes out to her. She’s shocked when the rest of her follows! She falls through the still-locked door of the peculiar shop and into a new level of trouble but also finds a remarkable glimmer of hope. It feels amazing to help someone, but is this actually happening? Maybe she’s losing it again. Either way, her mom’s going to freak out.
A Reality with a Twist Book… FEELING HUMAN is a wild ride contemporary slice of life in which a young man’s consciousness is removed from his body and is observing others from the inside. Before he takes this unique journey, Jac King lives in isolation on his Grandpa’s farm due to an extreme hypersensitivity to the emotions and energy of others. As a fly on the wall to the human soul, he can finally learn to know other humans and perhaps come to terms with his own feelings – including feeling abandoned by his mom. Can he ever learn to be more than alone?
What if everyone became the same?… In LIKENESS, early millennium Seattle-based workers Charlie and Emmaline are thrust from their comfortable and quirky marketing department to the Worldwide Pharmaceutical Conference stage. They present their ad for a new drug, Assimilaire, that minimizes social anxiety by making one feel the same as those around them. In a strange twist, a free sample causes the audience members to not only feel like, but to become like athletic geek Charlie and adventurous artist Emmaline. Forced to stay at the conference by a bomb scare, the affected hotel guests are caught in an impromptu madcap experiment exposing the nature of similarity and difference. This snappy contemporary novel provides much to think about and plenty of humor as it considers the value of who we are.
