The citizens of McCloonan believe that Ms. Libby is their matron of charity and goodness, but there is something very disturbing about her three young foster boys. Only the middle school principal and the school nurse suspect that there is something sinister happening in Ms. Libby’s home.
The foster boys are trapped in a cycle of abuse they cannot report without bringing more harm to themselves, and must figure out a way to expose Ms. Libby and her terrible secrets.
McCloonan’s Boys is a story of three children who must outsmart the adults in their lives to protect each other and unshroud the psychotic woman who has everyone fooled. It is the story of bravery, wits, and the incredible bond that develops between helpless victims of abuse.
Targeted Age Group:: juvenile and adult
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I really wanted to write about youngsters prevailing in difficult and even impossible situations. My real-life idols are people who came out of terrible situations braver, wiser, and stronger.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I chose middle school age boys with vastly different backgrounds and personalities. The boys are all at the age when connections are so important.
