The Shadow Constant: (for fans of Michael Crichton and Dean Koontz)

Someone is keeping watch over the machine. Should it ever have been built? 
 
The lure of the find behind the loose hearthstone at Hazelton House was too great. The schematic excited Evan, Reenie and Ivy for different reasons but it is Kayla who actually begins building it. Her ability to focus to the exclusion of all else is just one of the effects of her Asperger’s.

The scribbled initials E. W. were merely a curiosity until it’s discovered they belong to Eli Whitney. But strange footprints and disturbing visitors let Evan know that the theft of his sister’s prize schematic isn’t just a coincidence.

It becomes obvious that the generator has no apparent power source. And Eli Whitney was only the first to die because of the machine.

Soon they realize their enemies are much bigger than they had imagined and 
the threat the device poses could topple an empire. The secret now threatens those at Hazleton House.
        
Who is trying to stop them?

  1. Finally a mainstream Heroine who does more than kick ass Disclosure: my son has Aspergers, so I know a little about the social issues that challenge people with it. What I loved about this book is that it shows the gifts, not just the challenges. Imagine you were the one to find the plans. could you have interpreted, enhanced and built an energy machine? Yeah, me neither! But that’s the gift, and after hearing several psychologists say girls can’t have Aspergers, here’s a girl that does, and uses it to her advantage. 

  2. Great Portrayal of Asperger’s Syndrome One of the most amazing things about The Shadow Constant by A.J. Scudiere is the thoroughness of her portrayal of what it is like to live with Asperger’s Syndrome. The effects of the condition expand beyond the main character Kayla and effect everyone around her.
