Bernadette Dyer book launch July 3

Bernadette Dyer will be launching her new YA novel Abductors at Bar Italia, 582 College St., Tornto, at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 3. For more information, contact Rain Publishing at 905-592-2122.

Here's a description of the book:

When thirteen year old Graeme Hulis and his father immigrated to Toronto Canada from England, it was because Allison, a Canadian girl and her mother encouraged the immigration. But Graeme is totally unprepared for the unusual challenges that await him in Toronto.

A heart stopping eerie experience in a Toronto rooming house changes his life and arouses his interest in the unknown.

Without prior warning his father disappears, leaving behind a note that suggests abduction; and Graeme realizes that he himself might be stalked.

At school he befriends Norman, a Jamaican boy with whom he confides his concerns regarding his missing father, and also some explosive information he recently discovered in the diary of his long dead mother.

As a result of these findings, the two boys, and Allison soon find themselves in confrontation with the unexplained. It seems to them that entities from alien lore and folklore are united in a conspiracy to prevent them from finding out the truth about Abductors.
