July 2014 Debut of the Month A poem from the past is woven into this haunting contemporary story in which a teenager tries to come to terms with her grief after the death of her mother. Liz wants to be normal but she is haunted by the Glimpses and has no real memory of a time before her mother’s death. When she and her dad move into the Highwayman Inn, an old family home, she hopes to make a new start. But soon Liz is caught up in the poem from the past, some strange forces around the house and the arrival of a mysterious boy who haunts her nights. Will Liz ever find the peace and happiness she is searching for?

Synopsis

Glimpse by Kendra Leighton

Liz just wants to be normal. Her life is anything but.

Inspired by Alfred Noyes’ classic poem ‘The Highwayman’, Glimpse is a ghost story, a love story, and a story of a girl fighting for her future by confronting her terrible past.

About the Author

Kendra Leighton

Kendra was born in 1983 and spent most of her childhood absorbed in books. After completing a degree in English Literature and a post-graduate in Education, she taught English in China, Spain and in UK middle-schools. She rediscovered her love for Noyes's 'The Highwayman' while teaching the poem to thirteen year olds, and for YA fiction while browsing the school library. In 2008 she left teaching to co-found a chocolate company, giving her the time to indulge in her true passion: books. While making chocolate she listens to audio-books. The rest of the time, she can usually be found writing YA or studying the writing craft.
