The Talent Diary
by Chris McFarland
Sixth grader Samantha Branson is a normal, everyday girl, playing with her friends, and having a great time building the “clubhouse” in the bamboo covering her backyard. Once twelve, changes come fast for Samantha as she discovers a family secret even her parents know nothing about. The talent brings lies and dangers and she is pursued by ominous strangers who will harm her just for her gift.
