Title: Cameron Skye and The Nowhere Graves
Genre: Fantasy/Adventure (Middle-Grade)
Length: 71,000
Author: Susan Leigh Needham

Cameron’s hopes of finally making friends at circus camp gets complicated as she manifests multiple abilities, when most kids only have one.

If she can hide her extra sensory magic, maybe she’ll have a chance at friendship and keep herself safe from Thane, who has an evil habit of stealing rare sensory magic from children—by deadly force.

Without both trusted friends and her many sensory abilities, there isn’t a chance Cameron can battle glitchy crows, unravel spooky campfire stories full of family secrets, or survive inept instructors with ulterior motives … let alone win the coveted Camp Championship.
