Dandelion on Fire – Book 1, Greene Island Mystery Series
2016 Benjamin Franklin Book Award Gold Medalist for Teen Fiction
Everyone knows the legend—Greene Island is cursed. 17-yr-old Hardy Vance doesn’t care about curses. All he wants to do is graduate from high school and head to college on the mainland. But Hardy has a knack for finding trouble. When he gets stuck doing community service with a girl that has a secret, their lives quickly become entwined in a murder mystery that leads straight back into the island’s dark past and the dreaded Curse of Viola. It's up to Hardy and the supernatural abilities of his friends to uncover the horrible truth using the only clue left behind. A dandelion seed. Dandelion on Fire is a new addition to the great magical realism of William Ritter and Robert Beatty.
