It is the year 2063. Jeremy wants a Pan Limbic Universal Gadget (PLUG) in the worst way. How else can he compete with his plugged-in peers and become a famous astrophysicist when he grows up? But his parents have other ideas, including a secret genetic project which promises to unlock paranormal traits in their children as they enter puberty…a project which might explain the large number of near fatal accidents Jeremy has survived since infancy…a project easily invaded by evil forces. Project Paranormal is a mixture of time travel, an immortal evil spirit, and politics.
“Darn Good Yarn”
Five Star Review on Amazon By B.F. Spink
Project Paranormal grabs you and doesn’t let you go…seriously, even at the end, you’re still hooked, waiting for the next book in the series. Billed as Sci-Fi for the YA audience, this book is for all fiction readers. Well-paced, it’s also complicated in that futuristic way, but fortunately in 2063 kids are still kids (even if their language now includes terms like krankhorror), and at the age of 13, Jeremy Cay is forced to make adult decisions he’s just not ready to make. He’s also bullied in ways that no kid should ever have to face (such as a body full of cigarette burns). And his choices are lady-or-tiger-like. Would you save your family or the future of mankind? Would you leave your sister and a friend in a parallel universe, knowing mankind is doomed if you do? The stakes are high, but the best part of the ride is the fact that it’s a darn good yarn.
