A Story by Gathering_Stars


Adventures from clandestine worlds collide with the simple innocuous life of Melody Singleton in Shawn Helbert’s up and coming novel “Melody & The Pier to Forever.” Helbert‘s work, which combines elements from extreme fantasy with characters real enough to touch, exudes heroism at it’s finest.

Melody, a shy seventh grade math genius, wrestles day to day with the social pressures that accompany her intellect; although she is astonishingly bright, her peers mentally abuse her on a daily basis. Her only friends are her mother and a paraplegic friend with a dark past. A lone teacher at her school recognizes her mathematical prowess for something more than just a knack for numbers. He begins her journey into the supernatural with a math puzzle involving only a distorted and periodless question mark.

This novel starts out fast and keeps the pace going. Helbert has created a world to rival Rowling’s “Harry Potter”, and audiences will be begging for a sequel.
