❇️  2018 WATTYS WINNER! The Originals category ❇️ - "The Breakfast Club" meets "Veronica Mars" in this most unusual YA Mystery.

Using ACTUAL, archival material (some dating as far back as 1776), The Descendants weaves a tale of mystery and intrigue, constructed entirely from real photographs, documents, and snippets of history from a small, rural town in New Hampshire.

SUMMARY: Five high school students, with little in common other than being descendants of the town founders, are forced to work on a history project together. But when their history project uncovers evidence of a long-buried town secret, the kids must piece together the clues behind their discovery before its legacy comes back to haunt them.

What Dan Brown did  with conspiracy theories in "The DaVinci Code" and Ransom Riggs did with  historical photographs in "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children," I will attempt to do in "The Descendants," but with teen protagonists giving it a fun, modern twist.

Why? Uh...because I'm crazy like that! Check it out!

Yeah, yeah, I know...History?! Blah! But it actually turned out really fun! :-)
