Ridley Pearson

Dear Librarian:

Have your readers ever wondered what it would be like have a photographic memory? To never, ever forget a single thing they've said, or done, or others have said or done to them? It's a blessing and curse, as it turns out for Steven "Steel" Trapp who finds himself offered a place at a boarding school — The Academy — only to realize it's no normal school.

Steel remembers the good stuff, absolutely. But he also remembers the bad stuff, and worse, he remembers things he would rather forget — like other people's secrets. Torn between misunderstood friendships and teachers he's not sure he can trust, he sneaks around in the school's utility tunnels, popping up where he's least expected.

I attended a similar school (a long time ago) and I discovered tunnels just like the ones Steel ends up in. I so appreciate all you do for me!

Thanks in advance for pointing my readers my way (STEEL TRAPP: THE ACADEMY; The Kingdom Keepers; Peter and the Starcatchers — as well as my crime novels for "older" readers).
