Shirley Duke has been writing in a variety of children's genres for twelve years. Before she began writing, she taught science and ESL at the elementary and secondary levels. In creating Unthinkable, a YA horror story in the Night FallTM series, she drew on her high school ESL teaching experience for insight into what teens really like to read. Horror is a new genre for Shirley, and she found it exciting to create the special abilities of Sophie and Omar. She blogs about science books and suggests an accompanying activity at SimplyScience. Her blog includes some of Lerner's newest nonfiction. Unthinkable is her first book with Lerner.
a week of searching and frustration Seth was ready to board the next flight
home. Just as he was about to give up and turn his car around and head back to
the airport, he decided to go down one more road. And thank goodness he did.
There stood in an isolated area the most beautiful mansion he had ever seen,
just like one he'd been dreaming about. Seth started tearing up and said to
himself, "If I would have given up my dream would have vanished in the
up to the mansion and stepped out of his vehicle and as he was canvassing the
area he noticed a lighthouse about a couple of hundred yards away from the
mansion. Seth said, "That's cool a lighthouse, I wonder if that comes with
the mansion." He wasn't even sure
if the mansion was for sale because he didn't see a For Sale sign in front of
the mansion. The reason he didn't see a For Sale sign is because the sign fell
over and was buried in the sand. The previous owners left a couple of years ago
in terror. They took nothing with them just the clothes on their backs. Food
was left on the kitchen table as though it was still occupied and the furniture
was still in place. As Seth was strolling through the mansion he noticed a note
next to the telephone in the study. Being curious, he picked up the note and
read it. The note said, "If you should be interested in purchasing the
mansion call this number below. If you are wondering why food was left on the
kitchen table and all the furniture was left behind, a death in the family kept
me out of the country and would have been too expensive to ship all the
furniture out of the country. The furniture stays along with the lighthouse. If
you're serious about purchasing the mansion, just call the number below and I
think we can work something out."
