...a frightening tale that plays out in the shadows of their close-knit, largely white, small town of Bass Creek. A page-turner that is funny, magical, and entertaining.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

The sequel to The Strange Gift of Gwendolyn Golden, shortlisted for the OLA Red Maple Award.


I wander around like any normal, paranoid, self-absorbed teenager. Do we all think we’re being chased by deadly entities, I wonder? Probably, but how many of us actually are?



Gwendolyn Golden, Night Flyer, floats over the cornfields all summer. What draws her to the same spot, night after night? All she knows is that change is coming: she’s starting high school plus there’s a strange new boy in town.


He’s Everton Miles and he’s a Night Flyer, too.


Soon the mismatched teenagers face dangers they never imagined, including a fallen Spirit Flyer, kidnap, and the eternal darkness of The Shade. How will Gwendolyn handle her new life and grade nine? With help from The Night Flyer’s Handbook and her strange new friend, it might not be that hard.
