Keepsake that Educates!

Book Spotlight/Giveaway: WOI Tour for Scott R.Caseley Author of Isosceles! Ends April 25th.


WOI March/April 2013 Tour: Scott R.Caseley Author of Isosceles

About the Book:When he finds his best friend Trey Goodsby dead and almost completely submerged in a bathtub filled with bloody water, Sean McIntyre is determined to find out if it was an accident or suicide. Did his death accidental or intentional have anything to do with Madeline Edwards, the woman who came between them constantly through their thirteen-year friendship? The tale begins with the death of Trey Goodsby, and explores his relationships with family, friends, his romances, and which of the circumstances he found himself in that led to the tragic event, and the repercussions for those he left behind.

If you have that feeling that you’re coming up short…what will it take to feel equal?

Excerpt from book:

“Go over to the play area. I’ll deal with you once I’m done with…ah…whatever his name is.” Carter nodded to where the rest of the kids kneeled, stood, or sat on a blue carpet, watching a boy building with wooden toy blocks. Right away, I could sense he intended on crafting something difficult, a scale model of the courthouse down the road from Footbridge. While the boy’s physical appearance seemed rather ordinary, his skills could not be beat. He hadn’t misused a single block. Without any hesitation or second-guessing himself, he knew what to do to put everything in the right place.

“That’s so cool, Trey,” I heard a soft voice like the melodious whisper of birdsong, my intuition revealing the identity before my eyes did. Madeline swayed from side to side, beaming with her pearly-whites.

Trey paid her no mind though, allowing himself to be distracted only by his overgrown dirty-blonde hair, which kept going in his face. Sometimes, he didn’t even push it away. His focus so intense, a few times, he almost knocked into other kids. He never apologized for it, nor did most get upset. They seemed to understand he was in a zone, one with his creation. He circled the perimeter to detect if it needed something. Whenever he snapped his fingers, he’d call out “cylinder,” “triangle,” or “rectangle.” Madeline would select it out of a decaying cardboard box, to present it to him like an obedient puppy bringing a tennis ball to its owner.

Mr. Carter, with Sheldon behind him, returned from their business in the hallway. They joined the rest of us, studying Trey’s handiwork. Before long, Mr. Carter became entranced, too. It felt frustrating. Being an only child, I was used to being the center of my parents’ universe. Here, someone else stole the attention so rightfully mine. Worst of all, watching Madeline fawn over him drove me crazy. His hair was messy, his shirt dirty, and he was just average. Why did he hold her interest? Shouldn’t she see me instead? Mom knitted me this nice sweater and combed my hair before I went to the bus stop. My head started pounding from over-thinking the situation when Madeline moved toward him, letting her pigtail accidentally brush against his head. He didn’t seem to notice, but I sure did. I needed to take action.

Winner is #1 – Andrew T. Kuligowski

  1. The title caught this math major’s eye right away. Since I don’t see anything in the blurb explaining it, I can only assume how/why it was selected.
    Ironically, neither the blurb nor the selected excerpt really grabbed me and dragged me in, saying “Andrew, you HAVE to read this!!” (They didn’t repel, either, but they’re supposed to be lures …) If anything, though, that title is calling to me …
    Thanks for featuring, Ella. Thanks for your generousity in time and talent, Scott

    • Andrew,

      You’re very welcome and I’m glad that the title spoke to you. Believe it or not, I have heard that quite a few times from other math-minded folks.

  2. Well this book probably wouldn’t be appropriate for my second grade classroom but I’m in my mid-twenties so romance/mystery definitely appeals to me!

    • Lydia,

      You’re right, it definitely wouldn’t be appropriate for a second grade audience. however, since you are into the romance and mystery genres, I think you’ll get a lot out of this story.
