about


The Starker family appears to be cursed: every person of Starker blood has died from being struck by lightning. Fourteen-year-old Newton Starker is the last of his line—except for his great-grandmother, Enid, a woman as friendly as a pickled wolverine— and he’s determined to survive. 
      Newton has spent all of his life following a list of rules for self-preservation, guidelines passed down through generations of Starkers. But Newton wants to try something new.

?Jolted is funny and smart and fast paced. And it?s written with real love for that fascinating liminal creature called the young teenager, for whom the sky is always just about to fall.?
