Crooked Castle, Casey Grimes #2.5 (Paperback)
Don't mind the dragon.
When Brook, an orphan with a knack for survival, is dumped on a deadly island—by a beast that shouldn’t exist—all she knows is she’s far from her group home in Weed, California. And haunted by a past that stays just out of reach.
Brook knows the towering castle at the island’s heart is her ticket to a better life. As near-death experiences stack up, she and her accomplice, Fox, make plans to infiltrate the stronghold. With room to breath, she’ll figure out who she is and why she’s on the island—no matter what the cost.
CROOKED CASTLE is a YA contemporary fantasy/thriller about an orphan flung into a survival puzzle with a hulking mystery in the middle. It's a stand-alone that also acts as book 2.5 in the Casey Grimes series.
