The Super Spies and the High School Bomber
By Lisa Orchard
What a delight to have one of my daughter's favourite author as a guest on my blog this week. I often have to listen to "Mum, have you asked her when the next book's coming out?"
I'll do that right now ...
1 - The Super Spies series are very successful. When can we expect book #4?
I’m going to start book #4 as soon as I finish my Coming of Age Young Adult Novel that I’m working on. I’ve finished it and I’m in the editing stage right now.
2 - What inspires you when you write for the younger generation?
My inspiration comes from lessons I’ve learned in my own life or something I wish I learned sooner! LOL! I’m hoping that by writing these stories it will help young girls make good decisions for themselves when it comes time to make them.
3 - Tell us about your current project.
My current project is about a seventeen-year-old girl who hasn’t had many advantages in life, but she hasn’t let that stop her from becoming a talented musician. It’s the story of her growth, perseverance, and the difficult choices she has to make in order to see her dreams come true.
It’s for an older age group than my Super Spies stories, but it’s got a great message in it as well. I really love this story and I can’t wait to see it in print! J
This book opens in a small town in Michigan where Sarah and her sister Lacey are now living with their Aunt and Uncle. Still reeling from the fact her parents have disappeared, Sarah starts the school year with her new friend Jackie Jenkins. When Sarah learns the school has been bombed, she’s filled with dread. Uncle Walt is a teacher, and he was in the school when the bomb exploded. Taking matters into her own hands, Sarah decides to search for him. The rest of the Super Spies are right behind her. When a fireman chases them away from the school, Sarah becomes suspicious. She decides to investigate. The FBI arrives on the scene. Sarah realizes this bombing could have even bigger implications. Searching for the bombers, Sarah is introduced to the world of terrorism. She fears that the bombing and her parents’ disappearance are connected and terrorists are involved. To make matters worse, the bombers are determined to finish the job. Can the Super Spies find the bombers before it’s too late?
