Synopsis: In the desert town of Richland, Washington, there stands a giant sycamore tree. Horribly mutated by nuclear waste, it feeds on the life energy of boys that it snags with its living roots. And when Teddy Matthews moves to town, the tree trains its sights on its next victim.

From the start, Teddy knows something is very wrong with Richland-every kid he meets disappears before his eyes. A trip to the cemetery confirms that these boys are actually dead and trying to lure him to the tree. But that knowledge is no help when Teddy is swept into the tree's world, a dark version of Richland from which there is no escape . . .



From the Author: I am excited and honored to announce that The Dead Boys has been selected as the 2014 Sasquatch Award! Sponsored by the Washington Library Media Association, this award is given to a chapter book written for grades 4 - 8. Each year, the winner is chosen by the children of Washington State who will cast their votes in the spring of 2014. As a Washington native, this award is the coolest thing ever!
Young readers in Florida are also considering The Dead Boys for their state award, via the 2013-2014 Sunshine State Young Reader Book List as well. Very excited that kids on opposite ends of the country have been encouraged to read my book.

Acknowledgements
I'd like to thank my editor, John Rudolph, who cut my first draft in half and believed I could fix it. Thanks, John, I think we've found the story's place.

I'd also like to thank my friend Eric Richey, who has a good idea every once in a while.

Finally, I'd like to thank the federal government for dumping nuclear waste in my water until I was five years old, and without whom the mutant kid-eating tree in my backyard never would have grown...
