"Beware the grass that waves against the wind."-Naltstallis proverb
Fourteen year old Tyler "Cricket" Bennett's field trip to Whitevale Island starts off perfectly fine until Mr. Pate catches the girls sneaking into the boys' cabin. Fearing the worst, Cricket and his friends brace themselves for one of Mr. Pate's legendary rants—he's sure to let them have it this time. He might just cancel the field trip altogether!
Their worries are put to an end by Dr. Mboya, a visiting Kenyan scientist who calms Mr. Pate down—a feat that nobody has ever accomplished back at school. No longer afraid of punishment, Cricket and his friends run down to the beach, and Cricket even finds the courage to talk to a beautiful local girl.
But then the Smiling Man shows up...
Now it's a race for survival as the students find themselves trapped in a brutal crossfire between the inhuman Smiling Man and their teachers' mysterious pasts. The worlds beyond the stars have brought their fight to Whitevale Island, and after an encounter with a dying beast, Cricket starts lapsing in and out of consciousness, only to find that he isn't quite so human anymore.About the Author:
Remley Farr was born in Blackshear, GA, which is really swampy and full of mosquitoes, alligators, and people who love the second amendment. Fortunately, he survived long enough to graduate from Georgia Southern University in 2010, where he majored in Poverty, or as his diploma insists on calling it, English and Writing.
His most recent writing successes include his play, "Mark and George Conquer the Universe," placing first at the Jackie White Memorial Children's Playwriting Competition hosted by the Columbia Entertainment Company in Columbia, MO. This was his first written work to win him some money, so his parents have started loving him again, and they now let him sit at the grown up table during family gatherings instead of keeping him at the foldout kiddy table.
His young adult sci-fi series, PARAGON, is a testament to the merging of Farr's childhood and adulthood fictional favorites, which include such titanic runs as Goosebumps, Animorphs, Star Wars, Dragon Ball Z, LOST, Firefly, Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Pokemon, A Song of Ice and Fire, and maybe an episode of Sailor Moon or two when his guy friends weren't looking. He remembers library shelves strewn with anthologies that sometimes numbered over 50 installments, and maybe—just maybe—he can have a hand in bringing that kind of fiction back to the market.
Farr's favorite authors include legends such as Stephen King, Jonathan Swift, R.L. Stine, K.A. Applegate, George R.R. Martin, and that guy who wrote the Declaration of Independence.
