Ryan Quinn Makes the Indie Next List!
Exciting news - Ryan Quinn and the Rebel's Escape was named to the Winter 2016–2017 Kids’ Indie Next Great Reads List! All Indie Next List picks are based on recommendations from booksellers at independent bookstores, so I'm very proud of this. Independent booksellers are a treasure trove of information - if you haven't visited your local store recently, I highly recommend it.
Here's the recommendation from the announcement:
“Eighth-grader Ryan Quinn has no idea that his parents are part of a super secret Underground Railroad-type organization that operates in many of the world’s most dangerous places. Now he must try to save both of them with the help of some of his school friends. I love the way that debut author McGee gets inside the head of his protagonist and that of his techno-geek friend, Danny. These characters ring true, the action is non-stop, and fans of adventure, spy thrillers, and just plain fun storytelling will be eagerly awaiting the next installment.” —Maureen Palacios, Once Upon a Time, Montrose, CA
