Descripción del producto

“Mike Wood is Massachusetts' answer to Carl Hiaasen. Alchemy is a great and funny tale of wayward manatees, love, fatherhood and pirate treasures, not necessarily in that order.” – AJ Jacobs, bestselling author of The Know-It All

********************************************************************************************

When a migrating manatee makes a prolonged stop off the coast of Cape Cod, his unexpected arrival (and the beautiful daughter of the marine biologist who is following him) sets into motion a charming chain of events that will result in 15-year old Al learning the truth about his missing father, the joy and pain of first love, and ultimately even the fate of Hugh Manatee!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The summer of 1984 was a golden time in America. From California, where gymnast Mary Lou Retton was winning Olympic gold, to Cape Cod, where explorer Barry Clifford was discovering pirate gold, the nation seemed obsessed with the precious metal. But for 15-year old Al, that obsession hits a little too close to home when he finds a code-filled notebook belonging to his missing father that may contain the ancient formula for turning lead to gold. Convinced that his father’s sudden disappearance is connected to his secret experiments in alchemy, Al sets out to find the truth. He enlists the help of Cammie, a beautiful girl staying for the summer while her marine biologist father tracks a wayward manatee, and together they begin unraveling the mystery. But the closer they get to an answer, the closer they grow to each other, and as the end of summer draws nearer, Al wonders if they can break the code without breaking his heart.








Biografía del autor

Alchemy is "author" Mike Wood's first novel. His previous publications include a series of humor/dating pieces for the Connecticut Post, where he was a featured free-lance writer for their popular "Get Out" column. His work has also appeared in the web-based 'zines, "CT Independent News" and "Scientific Dinosaur." Alchemy is the result of a somewhat serendipitous meeting with best-selling author AJ Jacobs, whose continued praise and encouragement inspired Mike to head to the basement and start pursuing his secret dream of being a writer. Presently, Mike is happily living out his real dreams in Connecticut as a middle school teacher, faithful husband, and dedicated father.
