20 Days of Backstory: Day 10

Hi, friends,

It's Day 10 of my blog series on backstory about MAYDAY!


I spent a year researching plane crashes. The Congo crash, featured in the opening chapter, haunted me most. It’s a great teacher: group think can be deadly.


Praise for Mayday:

"A fine character-driven tale that slowly grows to a crescendo of satisfaction."
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Wayne is an appealing protagonist with a strong voice who develops believably over the difficult months, as do the other characters. A well-done book on all levels."―Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The main characters are well depicted and highly appealing.... Thought provoking and touching, Mayday applies to anyone who has ever felt like an outcast and wishes to become someone with a sense of pride."

"Wayne's is an authentic, funny, and sometimes sarcastic teen voice, which comes through clearly, even when he can't speak out loud.... in this sweet tale of survival, heroism, and the search for strength."
School Library Journal
