Polaris by Beth Bowland
Release Date: August 16, 2016
Bixie, Montana, is in the middle of nowhere, not connected to any place, and not used as a pass through to get anywhere. But one snowy evening, a lone visitor walking down an old country road changes 13-year-old Aaron Martin’s life forever. Aaron thinks he’s being a Good Samaritan by inviting the nearly-frozen visitor into his home, but he’s unwittingly initiated The Game. A group of Elders, known as the Council of the Legend, come together from time to time to enjoy a rousing event they playfully call “The Game.” Now, Aaron’s town is the playing board and he and his fellow townspeople are the players. The rules are simple. Win. Because if Aaron loses, he won’t just lose his family . . . he’ll lose his very identity.
Blurbs? Love'em or Leave'em?
I’m absolutely horrible with blurbs! Anytime I have to summarize anything, I panic. I admire people who have the ability to so easily summarize their books beautifully into one sentence or write a powerful blurb. Nope. That’s not me. I’ve been told to have your elevator pitch ready at all times, because you never know who you'll run into next. Well, I hope when it happens our elevator gets stuck! #CaptiveAudience.
