Bigfoot, Sasquatch, the Alligator Man, El Chupacabra, the Jersey Devil... myths, urban legends? But what if the stories of such monsters are true? And what if the truth is even more wondrous and frightening than the stories? Fifteen-year-old Riley Roswell is about to discover this awesome reality. Riley was expecting to have an ordinary summer vacation, enjoyable but predictable. What she got was something else entirely. While on a daytrip with her mother and brother, Riley befriends a mysterious boy and becomes entangles in a web of truths and lies more strange than she could have imagined possible.While feeling from his oppressive home realm, young Vince finds an accepting and compassionate friend in Riley. Though he fears that those whoa re hunting him could prove too formidable a match for a mere human, he cannot help but admire the girl's courage. Riley and Vince, now a team, set out on a journey to escape Vince's desperate situation that takes them thousands of miles from anything they had ever know. During their journey, strangers will become friends, help will come from the most unlikely places, great wrongs will be righted and salvation delivered to a world hidden in plain sight. Filled with incredible characters, fast-paced action, quirky humor and genuine emotions, Destination: Michigan is a heart-pounding, smile-bringing adventure of the brave and honest defending the downtrodden and abused from the ambitious and power hungry.show more

About Shelby Hotz

Shelby Jade Hotz first started writing in sixth grade when her teacher liked the story she wrote so much that she asked her to read it to the principal. Encouraged by this, she spent a good portion of her free time throughout junior high and high school penning plots for short stories. Her first major endeavor was a 17-chapter fan fiction book, a sequel to one of her favorite movies. The e-coli poisoning that Shelby suffered at twenty months caused her kidneys to fail and she spent months on peritoneal dialysis. Her kidneys continued to decline over the next few years and at age five, she received a transplant from her mother. Even though the thirteen years since then have been a roller coaster ride medically, Shelby's writing has helped her overcome it all. She began writing Destination: Michigan during her freshman year and finished it right before he last year of high school. Now during her senior year, she is working on the sequel and intends to add a third to for a three-book series. Shelby lives in the outskirts of Penngrove, California with her parents, younger sister, six dogs, two cats, one parrot, one parakeet, three goats and eight chickens. Her sister, Crystal Rose Hotz provided the illustrations for Destination: Michigan.show more
