Finn's Fast Books--middle grade fiction
Serena Schreiber's first middle grade adventure novel, FINN'S SHIP, won a Royal Palm Literary Award in 2011. Full of mystery, treasure hunting, skateboarding and eluding the bad guy, FINN'S SHIP was inspired by the real life experiences of her teenaged son, who regularly travels to Germany, where he was born.
In FINN'S CAR, the standalone sequel published in 2013, Finn returns to Europe to race at the Karting Monaco Grand Prix. Greg Taylor, author of Killer Pizza, said, "I felt like I was hanging out with my best buds while reading FINN'S CAR. Fifteen-year-old Finn and his friends are that enjoyable, that much fun (not to mention a breath of fresh air amidst all the dystopian angst hanging over YA lit these days). My recommendation? Hop aboard, strap on your seat belt and leave the driving to Finn."
Blasting off in 2015, read Book #3, FINN'S ROCKET. When his little sister gets kidnapped from space camp, Finn will do anything and go anywhere to get her back. Even the international space station.
In 2014, Serena published the fantasy anthology, Somewhere South of Normal, set on the mythical island of FALSE KEY, Florida--Island of dreams and nightmares, mermaids and shifters. Book 2, Somewhere of South of Sane, is due in 2015.
