Trent Reedy - Author

About the Author

Trent Reedy grew up in Iowa, USA, and has always loved telling stories. He majored in English at the University of Iowa and paid for his course by joining the Iowa Army National Guard. Called up to serve in Afghanistan in 2004, he experienced bad feelings both about the war and leaving his wife and home. Then, after reading Katherine Paterson's novel Bridge to Terabithia he started thinking about writing for young people.

One of the children he encountered in Afghanistan was a young girl named Zulaikha, who had suffered since birth from a cleft lip. A U.S. army doctor gave her corrective surgery, and Trent was inspired by Zulaikha's quiet courage and dignity. The last time he saw her, he promised that he would tell her story. Returning to Iowa in 2005, he taught English before taking a Master of Fine Arts degree in writing for children and young adults at Vermont College of Fine Arts. He now lives with his wife and dog Wiggles in Washington State, where he is hard at work on his second book.

Hunter's Choice

Author: Trent Reedy Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/03/2021

Twelve-year-old Hunter Higgins has been dreaming about his first hunting trip for as long as he can remember. He's taken the classes, earned his license, and become one of the best marksmen in his family. Now he's old enough to join his father, grandfather, and uncle at their cabin for the first weekend of hunting season. There's only one problem: Hunter isn't sure he can kill an animal. To make things more complicated, when they arrive at the cabin, his cousin Yumi is there with her friend Annette, who Hunter secretly has a crush on. Anxious about the hunt and the humiliation of possibly failing, Hunter grapples with what it means to have the power of life and death in his hands, and must decide what role he wishes to play in his relationship to nature and to wildlife.
