It’s a Little Haywire

by Elle Strauss

4.6 stars – 8 Reviews
Text-to-Speech and Lending: Enabled

Here’s the set-up:

Middle Grade (8-12) with Illustrations and Hyperlinks to Charlie True’s Golden Oldies Playlist

Owen True is eleven and eleven twelfths and has been “exiled” to the small crazy town of Hayward, WA, aka, Haywire, while his mother is on her honeymoon. All he has to whittle away the time is the company of Gramps, his black lab Daisy, and his Haywire friends, Mason and Mikala Sweet. They don’t look so hot this year, in fact, the whole town has gone to pot since the mill shut down.

Owen has his first encounter with a real life homeless man who ends up needing Owen’s help in more ways than one. But how does a rich city kid help the small town’s suffering citizens?

And what is Owen to make of the fog train and its scary, otherworldy occupants that appear out of thin air on the old tracks behind Gramps’ house? Do they have the answer Owen is looking for?

One Reviewer Notes:
Elle Strauss writes with such insight and taps into the heart of what many young people experience as they interact with their peers, and with the adults in their lives. The characters connect the reader to the jumbled feelings of youth, the desire to belong, and a passion to make a difference in a “haywire” world. The illustrations are an added bonus, bringing extra life to the colorful characters. Young readers will love this book!
Amazon Reviewer, 5 Stars
