TIME TRAVEL AND FAMILY SECRETS ABOUND IN NEW YA NOVEL PLAY ON
4 Sunflowers Media is proud to announce the publication of its first young adult novel, PLAY ON by Marilynn Halas ($14.99, Ages 12-Up). With twists and turns in every chapter, PLAY ON promises to keep readers guessing and reading until they uncover the mysteries perpetuated by a guitar rumored to have once belonged to Elvis Presley.
When Dillon, a teenager from New York City, picks up a guitar in Tennessee, little does he know that his life is about to change dramatically. To start, cryptic notes start popping out of the guitar case. Then when Dillon begins playing the guitar it channels a dead soldier, who may or may not be a friend. The race is on to discover the truth. As the past collides with the present and family secrets begin to unravel, Dillon realizes he has no choice but to play on.
“In a world when the unexpected can become routine I wanted kids to know that they have the inner strength to keep going,” states Marilynn Halas. “I believe that the best heroes are ordinary people in extraordinary situations that rise to the occasion. I also believe there is a hero in everyone. To find that hero we just need to play on.”
