Myra King / The Journey of Velvet Brown

  • Myra King / The Journey of Velvet Brown
Being bullied for the colour of her skin is the least of fourteen-year-old Velvet Brown’s problems. Velvet was born with a terrifying second sight. She ‘sees’ the crazies, the psychopaths, those monsters sliding among us, hidden behind normal-looking faces. There’s a double murder in her small-minded town and Velvet has seen the ‘monsters’ - the murderers. But she can’t download on her best friend, Kaleen Pingelly, or even go to the police. No one will believe her. And when love spins into her life in the shape of a sixteen-year-old racing cyclist, a guy so hot he makes Lycra look cool, Velvet's problems rise to yet another level. To save herself and Kaleen from danger, Velvet must find evidence enough to prove to others what only she can see.

‘A pacy exciting ride through a plot layered with crime, special abilities, mystery - and horses.’ - Paddy O’Reilly, award-winning Australian author
