Yes, I know Chad Morris. Yes, I'm name dropping to appear cool. Yes, I'm ridiculous.
But the thing is, I not only know Chad, I really admire him. Yesterday was the day his book officially released, and he wasn't able to celebrate it like he might have dreamed. He was too busy taking care of his nine year old daughter, Maddie, who is in the hospital after undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumor. He talked about on his blog here. He and his wife, Shelly, are an inspiration to me. My thoughts and prayers are with them during this challenging time.
So a bunch of his writing friends have come together to help spread the word about his awesome new middle grade book:
Welcome to Cragbridge Hall, the most advanced and prestigious school in the world. Twin siblings Abby and Derick Cragbridge are excited as new students to use their famed grandfather’s inventions that make Cragbridge Hall so incredible. But when their grandfather and parents go missing, the twins begin following a trail of clues left by their grandfather. They must find out where their family is, learn who they can trust, and discover what secrets are hidden within Cragbridge Hall.
Abby and Derick soon realize they are caught in a race with a fierce adversary to discover their grandfather’s greatest secret–a dangerous discovery that could alter both history and reality.

Unlike Oscar Cragbridge, however, he hasn’t really invented anything, though his son once sketched out blueprints for a machine that would turn celery into cookies.
