The Confession of Hemingway Jones (Hardcover)
It’s time to raise the dead.
Moments after a devastating car accident kills his father, 17-year-old Hemingway Jones takes his father’s body to Lifebank, the cryogenic preservation research center where he interns. Hijacking the lab in a desperate attempt to reverse the natural order, Hemingway holds police and medics at bay as he works to revive his father. As dawn breaks, the heart monitor beeps, and his father slowly creeps back to life.
Days later, Hemingway arrives at the hospital to learn that his father’s skin has turned ashen gray, he can’t exist in temperatures above 55 degrees Fahrenheit, and hydrogen sulfide has become his only source of food. Facing arrest for his reckless actions, Hemingway is offered a proposal by the billionaire owner of the lab: recreate the experiment he swore he’d never do again, or go to prison, leaving his father to die a second time.
About the Author
Having worked as a Hollywood development executive for many years, Kathleen Hannon's career got turned upside down by the Writer's Strike of 2007. With nothing to edit, she turned her desk from west to north, and her editing skills to writing. Her Middle-Grade novel “Bye for Now" was published by Egmont in late 2011. After a couple screenplays for Hollywood, she has returned to books. "The Confession of Hemingway Jones" is her first YA novel. Hannon lives in Charlotte, N.C., and is the single mom of two daughters.
“The Confession of Hemingway Jones grabs you on page one and never lets go, with a story that is equally pulse-pounding and heart-breaking.” —Melinda Metz, author of the Roswell High series, writer for Roswell
