Description

If terrorism begins at home, then school bullies are the first wave…

Thirteen year-old Magdalene Barrows is still reeling from her brother Michael’s disappearance the previous summer. Now another child has vanished. There’s been a shooting in a second grade classroom. Eight-year-old Katie has a ring of bruises around her arm. And Magdalene believes the bullies are to blame.

It is nine months after 9/11, and Mondauk County is on edge and seething with secrets. Magdalene’s father, the recently sober assistant DA, has been assigned the prosecution of the second grade shooter and (bowing to political pressure) the boy’s mother. Magdalene, who ended the school year with her second suicide attempt, uncovers connections between the school bullies, Katie’s father, and the widow of a firefighter slain on 9/11 that may link the school shooting to the disappearances. But to confront bully chieftain Stevie Rich, she will have to enter the lawless recesses of Paradise Lakes Trailer Park.

Magdalene must race against impending indictments, as well as reoccurring dreams that threaten to reveal her role in her brother’s fate, in order to rescue Katie and solve a murder before the bullies make her the next citizen of Mondauk County to disappear.

    Only 40 pages in. Raven has my heart, and the nuns take me back to a time I often forget. You are a gifted writer, Mr. Harrington!

    I was so touched when I received your book – your work of art – honored that you deemed me worthy of receipt. I have flirted with the first few chapters and am loving it. It sits by my bedside and I anticipate spending enjoyable hours reading…

    Pour yourself a glass of wine and get comfy, this is a big book! At first I was confused about Magdalene and then realized that she was a troubled child with a vivid imagination. Go on this journey with her, her family and friends and the bullies; enjoy the escape from reality! You’re really going to like Raven!

    I meant to message you to tell you how much I enjoyed your book. I was VERY impressed! Really liked it. At times was reminded of John Irving (hope you take that as a compliment- that’s how it’s meant). Anyway, best of luck with everything…

  9. Rated 4 out of 5

    Just finished reading Saving Magdalene. I really enjoyed it. It’s funny. I could relate to it because of my own experience with depression and losing the ones I so deeply loved.

  10. Rated 4 out of 5

    I finished your book. It was great! The fear of abandonment permeates the book. Magdalene had to learn to take that leap to save herself.
