Shadow Kid - Best Ever You Awards - Winner - Best Books

Updated: Apr 22

We are proud to issue our Gold Seal of Excellence in Books to Shadow Kid by Jennifer Vaughn.

Rocked by back-to-back family deaths, eight-year-old Gavin Scott is yanked from his happy life in upstate New York and plopped down onto Planet New Hampshire. It's the 1960's, bullies are merciless, and he must outsmart them at every turn. But with a knack for pranks, Gavin learns that running with a wild crowd has its drawbacks.

Refusing to roll on his buddies for a crime he didn't commit, Gavin takes the heat and punishment is harsh. The Wings for Young Offenders program offers troubled teens a straighter path. Gavin earns his seat in the cockpit. Flying is the finest rush he's ever felt, but he still can't soar. He can't even get through high school. A lurid back channel opportunity opens.
