MOTOR DOLLS! A thrilling adventure featuring hot rods, motorcycles, a daredevil girl, and a photographer who captures the madness on film! MOTOR DOLLS takes the reader on a thrilling, girl-powered ride in search of life’s passions, featuring:
Jeda, a graphic artist full of bad-assery…
…and Benny, a photographer seeking her Perfect Moment on film.
A prophecy shared by a stranger on the day of her grandmother’s death pushes Jeda to live like there’s no tomorrow, chasing one outrageous stunt after another, all instigated by mysterious messages from an unknown source. But when the danger escalates, she begins to question the motive behind it all: Is she simply nuts? Or is some mysterious man in gray really trying to drive her to her death?
In her search for answers, Jeda lets Benny in on the secret, and since Benny is at a crossroads—finish her Masters in Geology? or drop out of school to pursue her true passion? —she agrees to help. As Benny documents the madness of Jeda’s life on film—like driving in a Blindfolded Death Race and luging downhill on a skateboard with no brakes—they learn the truth behind the enigmatic man in gray; a truth that tests the foundations of Jeda’s family and of their friendship.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING!
“Rich with imagery, this is one of those books that just makes the rest of the world go away it’s so engaging. A story about a pair of car-loving college-aged gals and good pals during their Summer of Thrills. Not only do I love the adventures and mystery that they find themselves in the middle of, but I love that the two main characters are thoroughly unique, independent, and courageous.” – KRISTIN MARTIN, Automotive Journalist and founder of GreaseGirl.com
“I devoured this book on a rainy sick day. It is accessible and easy to read while being very engaging, descriptive and colorful. By the time I was halfway through, I wanted to grab a friend and hop in the car for a road trip. Motor Dolls is a great story about friendship, youth and discovering who you are, with a fun mystery to tie it all together.” – KAT TESSIER, Hells Belles Car Club
“The Motor Dolls plot is a high velocity who-done-it, guaranteed to get you arrested for speed reading. This is the very definition of a page turner, as it has pages that turn and everything. A must read for aspiring escape artists!” – SCOTTY GOSSON, Author of Rat Rods, America’s Favorite Station Wagons, and Wildest Show Rods
“Hoowee! I can assure you this book is as much fun as it sounds. It’s easy to see this book was written by a woman who knows her way around the garage and with a knack for creating believable characters, even in unbelievable situations. Little quirks make the characters seem very real, like someone you know or could easily know.- SHERI BOMB, Australian Rockabilly Blogger
“Seldom do I fall in love with characters or a story so far from what I would consider my comfort zone, but with Jeda and Benny, you just can’t help it. Excellently written, wonderfully thought out, a perfect adventure of laughs, danger and mystery. Harder and harder to put down as you flip each page.” – JOHNATHAN DENNEY, Photographer
