Shade: Girl on a hero’s journey, going from smart-ass to badass.
Thanks to her offbeat mother, Shade’s full name is Galactic Shade Griffin. Having a name like that while being the new girl in school is pretty much catnip for bullies.
Moving into a dilapidated old house, Shade discovers her attic bedroom’s haunted by the ghost of a teenaged boy named Brandon Yates. When Shade’s best friend goes missing, her life becomes even more complicated. With the help of Brandon who’s struggling with his own issues in the world beyond, Shade faces the question of whether or not she has what it takes to become a true hero.
Although this novel deals with serious issues—drug and alcohol abuse, cutting, and disturbing world events—it’s primarily a novel about a teenaged girl finding out who she really is and that she’s capable of so much more than she ever thought possible.
Shade and the Skinwalkers
by Marilyn Peake
As if being a ghost whisperer in a trailer park isn’t weird enough, skinwalkers take things to a whole new level of strange.
Running away from her demons rather than facing them, Shade’s mother moves them once again to a new place—this time a trailer park on the outskirts of Roswell, New Mexico. Hiding in plain sight among UFO festivals and rumors of alien abductions, paranormal creatures live there by their own rules.
With the help of her new best friend, Kai Zahnii, Shade accepts her destiny as a ghost whisperer. Kai is all too familiar with skinwalkers, shapeshifter witches who violate taboos in order to practice pure evil. In a world inhabited not only by ghosts, but also by witches, faeries and shapeshifters, Shade must find the courage to fight skinwalkers alongside her new best friend and the magical creatures she never knew existed.

FLIT is the true story of the Instantaneous Transport Portal, believed to have been discovered many years ago by forgotten NASA scientists and suppressed by the government. The ITP was deemed too disruptive to the status quo because it offered instant transport of cargo and people between any location, obsolescing every form of physical transport and all the ancillary services supporting transportation across the entire world. But the invention eventually gets out and what happens when the concept of a locale becomes meaningless, and how the machine shatters the world economy and people’s lives in completely unforeseen ways.
