Moving to a new town seemed a good way to get away from it all, especially when pretty Claire Williams arrives. Its too bad shes so far out of his league hed need a telescope to make out the speck. After an accident nearly takes his life -- deer are so stupid- thats why we shoot them -- Michael must face his feelings about his mothers death and Claire and learns life can and does go on . . . but theres always a catch. With Claire, his best friend, Alex, and the three strange newcomers living in a rundown farmhouse off Highway J in the small town of Friendship, Michaels world evolves into a new kind of normal with a touch of weird and getting weirder all the time. The bizarre vision glitch that seizes him every time he looks at Claire soon extends to everyone in an array of colors and sensations not his own, the worst being the unseen force bent on beating the crap out of him every time Claire gets upset. If that were all the excitement Friendship had to offer, Michael might be okay- but weird isnt satisfied when youre dealing with destiny and Michael is about to learn the truth. Angels walk among us. They look like you and me. They are here for a purpose. Calling is a young adult paranormal fantasy that leaves vampires, werewolves and zombies behind to follow one young mans return from the apathy of Im okay to become whole again. However, for Michael, being whole means accepting a destiny he never asked for, involving a father he never knew and a choice he cannot escape. We dont choose our calling- we only choose how we answer.
