A teenage boy with something to prove gets caught up in a web of crime and deceit in England, 1945. In the weeks leading up to his sixteenth birthday, gifted psychic Leighton Cavendish finds himself suddenly packed off to Blackpool, a glittering, teenage paradise filled with plenty of opportunities for amusement-and trouble. With only a preoccupied grandmother to keep an eye on him, Leighton's desperation for adventure leads him out into a world of holidaymakers, candy, and carnival rides-the ideal place to spend six weeks away from home. But Leighton's psychic visions are encroaching on his fun, trying to warn him of the danger that lurks beyond the shimmering lights of the Golden Mile. Who are the mysterious thieves Leighton sees in his head, and what do they want with the children they seek? A girl called Faye holds the answer, but she has enough problems of her own. Amid the climate of a tourist town recovering from the impact of the Second World War, two lost teenagers will discover a shocking truth about human greed. Together, they will try to fight against it. For Leighton and Faye, this will be a summer to remember-one filled with challenges that must be overcome. A summer that turns a boy into a man.
Born in South Wales to Raymond and Jennifer Finn, Kimberley Charlotte Elisabeth Finn (known to readers as K.C., otherwise it'd be too much of a mouthful) was one of those corny little kids who always wanted to be a writer.

Editorial Reviews

Kelly A. Risser, author of Never Forgotten - 5 starshttp://www.amazon.com/review/R27M2EVF5S29NY/ref=cm_cr_pr_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00JOZSRPMLeighton's Summer takes place several years after The Mind's Eye. In the beginning, we get a glimpse of where Kit, Henri, Blod and the others are in their lives, but the real story involves Kit's younger brother, Leighton. Leighton is fifteen going on sixteen, a boy on the verge of becoming a man. The story takes place over the summer while he is living with his grandmother. Like many teenage boys, he gets in with the wrong crowd and spends a lot of time thinking about girls. Luckily, he meets his match in Faye, a feisty orphan. This story has it all - humor, suspense, good guys and bad buys, and some sweet young romance sprinkled in. I loved The Mind's Eye, and I equally loved Leighton's Summer. The story absolutely stands alone, but ends in a way that leaves me anticipating what comes next. I can't wait for the next book in this fabulous series.
