SCAVENGER HUNT POST
Today, I'm so excited to host Debra Dockter, author of DEADLY DESIGN, on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!
Debra Dockter has had the privilege of having diverse life adventures, including performing with the Tennessee Festival Ballet, being a magicians assistant, working as a child psychologist and a college professor. Her first young adult medical thriller, Deadly Design, came out in 2015.
Check out Debra's website or buy DEADLY DESIGN here!
Genetically engineered identical twins Kyle and Connor McAdams were born two years apart. Their parents figured it was safer that way, to increase their odds of survival. Connor was born first, paving an impossibly perfect path for Kyle to follow. He was the best at everything—valedictorian, star quarterback etc. Kyle never thought he’d be able to live up, so he didn’t even try.
But when Connor, 18, suddenly drops dead of a heart attack, and Kyle learns of other genetically modified kids who’ve also died on their eighteenth birthdays, he’s suddenly motivated—to save his own life. Like Connor and all the rest, Kyle was conceived at the Genesis Innovations Laboratory, where the mysterious Dr. Mueller conducted experiments on them. The clock’s ticking as Kyle searches for answers: who was Dr. Mueller really, and what did he do to cause their hearts to stop at eighteen? He must unravel the clues quickly, before, he too, becomes another perfect, blue-eyed corpse.
WOW, this trailer for DEADLY DESIGN is amazing...check it out here!
