99 True!

(2015)
(A book in the My Near-death Adventures series)
A novel by

 
For history lovers and journal fans comes a "hilarious and heartbreaking . . . 99 - 100% fantastic" (A Fuse #8 Production, School Library Journal) story about a boy on a mission to find his long-lost father in the logging camps of Michigan.

There are many things that 11-year-old Stanley Slater would like to have in life - most of all, a father. But what if Stan's missing dad isn't "dearly departed" after all?

Armed with his stupendous scrapbook, full of black-and-white 19th-century advertisements and photos, Stan's attempt to locate his long-lost hero/cowboy/outlaw dad is a near-death adventure fraught with pesky relatives, killer lumberjacks, and poisonous pies! His tale will leave readers in stitches, but not the kind that require medical attention.

Praise for My Near-Death Adventures (99% True!)
"A knee-slapper of a debut featuring a narrator who is rather less than 99 percent reliable but 100 percent engaging." - Kirkus Reviews

"[An] exuberant first novel." - Publishers Weekly

"Stan's story is full of his hilarious misunderstandings and overactive imagination. Interspersed throughout are pictures and news clippings embellished with wisecrack remarks, speech bubbles, and the occasional mustache." - Booklist

From the Hardcover edition.
