the wait is over
Edward Averett is proud to announce the arrival of his new YA novel, Cameron and the Girls. Cameron Galloway is a 14-year old boy who has fallen in love. He has two girlfriends; only one of them is real. Now available for pre-order.
NEW FROM CLARION BOOKS
Cameron Galloway feels like an outcast. He takes medication to help him be normal, but nothing feels normal to him. So he stops taking his pills, and before long he hears a girl’s voice in his head. She tells him just what he wants to hear and best of all, she wants to be his girlfriend. Then a new girl in class takes an interest in him, but Cameron isn’t picking up on her signals. He’s too busy trying to figure out if the voice is the perfect girlfriend or just a part of his illness. Soon his untreated mind throws him into dangerous situations, and he is more and more torn between the real world (with the real girl) and the one in his mind. Teachers, doctors, and family all try to keep him on the right path, but who gets to make your decisions when you’re trying to lead your own life?
Edward Averett, a clinical psychologist, weaves a complex story of a loving family dealing with schizophreniform disorder and the young man at the center of it all.
