THE UNSEEN, BOOK 1 OF 3!
“A riveting supernatural character study wrought with the pains of
first love and the struggles of self-acceptance.”—Kirkus Reviews!
It was a gamble for Eleanor to rejoin humanity, but she was driven to it. She’d been too successful forgetting. The last vestiges of her family hung by a thread in her transformed brain and drove her to be reckless. Ten years later, Eleanor hides in plain sight. She is an average girl getting average grades in a small Wyoming town: poor but happy, lonely but loved. Her mother, Tabitha, is there for her and that’s all she’s ever needed. But now her mother is sick and David has returned. The only friend she’d ever had—the only other person who knows her secret—is back. And Eleanor again becomes reckless.!
Eleanor is a modest girl, unremarkable but extraordinary, young but old, malleable but fixed. She is scared and confused. She is a liar and a thief. Eleanor is not what she appears to be.!
!•! Eleanor is a raw, beautiful story with an unforgettable protagonist. Although it includes a paranormal basis in Native American legend, the story maintains emotions and complexity usually only present in literary YA novels.!
Unique and unexplored premise based on the Native American legends of skinwalkers.!
Impressive characterization—it’s difficult not to fall in love with strange Eleanor.!
Johnny Worthen writes swiftly and effectively, ensuring a steady rise to becoming a literary powerhouse.!
Well-suited and satisfying as a standalone, yet provokes eager interest in the forthcoming installments.!
