About the Book (Excerpts & Info):
Zoey L Mar thinks she has a typical preteen life in the suburbs: soccer, dancing, a loving father and mother, a pesky little brother, Owen, and two best friends, Danielle Hernandez and Lucy La Mar. Without warning, while preparing for Owen’s birthday party, Zoey receives her first premonition, one based on a secret truth, and it starts to undermine her once peaceful, eleven year old’s existence.
Her premonition, which includes mystery, monsters and magic, matches a recurring dream that has plagued Zoey ever since her brother had turned seven. At first Zoey dismisses the premonition. She doesn’t realize what’s occurring and she does not grasp the importance of it.
The premonition pertains to a family secret and a forgotten responsibility, many generations removed, and she confides in her friends, but not her family, about it. Suddenly one teammate and another classmate, Rhea Khan, become entangled in Zoey’s problem.
Will Zoey and her friends be able to do what’s right and save themselves and their families?
The Sentry is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the juvenile/readers/beginner category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, The Sentry meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $27.95.
The Sentry can also be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks.
