Is there ever a time to lie? What if the truth is dangerous? Three friends witness a violent robbery, and fearing for their lives, make a pact to hide what they know. Trapped in a code of silence, they must face the consequences of choosing right or wrong--when both options have a price.
Code of Silence is a contemporary suspense targeted for 8-12-year-olds--specifically boys. Girls have been loving it as well.
Code of Silence takes two popular maxims, "honesty is the best policy" and "silence is golden" ... and puts them in the ring together to fight it out.
Code of Silence is the first in a three-book series published by Zonderkidz.
A story that will hold a boy's attention. And works as a great book for a parent to read aloud to reluctant readers.
Not a fantasy, a story about a star athlete, or of a kid with amazing or supernatural abilities, Code of Silence is the story of three regular kids that get in way over their heads. It will relate well with with the average boy.
None in officially yet, although there were some great comments from the editor and pub board.

"Connor LOVED the book . . . he finished it in 2 days. He gave it to his best friend, Nick, who loved it and did a report on it for his Language Arts Class. Connor and Nick can hardly wait for second book in the series!"
Paige K., mom of Connor, age 11
"The kids keep asking me 'Are we going to read more from the book today?' and 'When are we going to read more Code of Silence?' They are so geeked on this novel thus far, you coming in would send them over the edge!"
Wendy Fanella, 5th grade teacher
