The folks at WiDo have updated the blurb for The Soul Seekers. And you know what? I think they did a wonderful job! The original one left Jesse out, so it's really nice to see his name finally included in a description. Btw, Jesse has turned out to be many people's favorite character—a nice surprise for me the author, and totally fun to hear about! So here ya go, the new blurb:
When Emma Shay’s father dies, that summer– the summer of 1979– her mother moves them cross country to live with Gran in Springvale, a small isolated town in southern Indiana. Springvale is a place with bizarre rules that people are afraid to break. A place of hushed whisperings about long-ago secrets.
Emma’s own secret is her attraction to William, the dark handsome visitor at the library where she works. But she is puzzled and intrigued by his behavior. He sits day after day at the same table in the back of the library. He speaks at her but never to her. He is there and then he isn’t. He is beautiful, mysterious, tortured.
When Emma meets Jesse from the record shop down the street, Jesse offers excitement, a way out of town, and perhaps even a way to reach William and save him from his suffering.
Emma wants William, Jesse wants Emma, William wants to protect Emma. And the creepy town leaders– The Soul Seekers—want them all. But why?
