On the surface, Leesie’s just another seventeen-year-old orphan, bouncing from one high school to the next. In actuality, she’s a Seer on clandestine missions. Leesie possesses the power to travel into layers of memory manipulating her conquests as directed by the clandestine organization of Seers and her enigmatic preceptor, Tobias.
When challenged by her latest mission, Leesie will be left questioning where her true loyalty lies. Why is it suddenly difficult to obtain the information she needs? What’s allowing her to remember fragments of her hazy past? And why is it so hard for Leesie to see who has been plotting against her all along?
An engrossing contemporary novel, SEERS explores the fine line between friend and foe and the beauty of determining which memories—new and old—make us who we are.
SEERS is the winner of the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) Children’s Book Competition in the Chapter Book category.
Kristine Bowe is a writer and teacher from Southern New Jersey. She is immersed in all things teen-related, and so writing for them was inevitable. SEERS is Kristine’s first published novel.
