"A guy walks up to me and asks 'What's Punk?'. So I kick over a garbage can and say 'That's punk!'. So he kicks over a garbage can and says 'That's Punk'?, and I say 'No that's trendy'!"- Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day


Summary:

John Lange was your typical New York detective. At least, that's what he's been told. The only thing Lange can remember is getting caught in a near fatal explosion, and now his ex-wife's employers, an organization known only as Project NOVA, have become his only lifeline. No one's willing to tell the whole truth, and no one can be trusted. NOVA's own operatives have been disappearing, and someone on the outside has been watching Lange for a long, long time.

But before Lange can investigate the secretive Project NOVA, he's going to have to learn the truth about himself. And the secrets John Lange's own mind hides may yet make this case his last!

Thanks, I think you'll find the retail version to be far less confusing...everything is given more time to develop naturally and some unneccessary story arcs have been cut.

I must admit , I was very skeptical in reading this at first. I was positive I would hate it. Surprisingly , I like it. The story has an aura of mystery to it that keeps you hanging on to every word. The vivid imagery definantly keeps the book interesting , and the plot and twists included make for a good novel. If I would have to give you constructive critiscm on something , it would be that your characters don't have enough background info , and I wished they were described more thoroughly. I feel as if your sentences are often times choppy-ish and the piece does not seem to flow correctly in some places. This is a nice novel to read , but  I feel like it could use some improvement. It also seems to me as if it is more appropriate for adults, and not teenagers. It's just something I think would be a level 12+. I hope you take this criticsm constructively and I hope I have not offended you in any way , and I am only trying to give you my perspective on your novel.

Wow! I loved this, I thought the storyline was really interesting. I was a little confused at some parts, but other than that I really liked reading this. Good job!

I don't blame you for being lost--that wasn't the end! The draft currently posted on Teen Ink is actually pretty old, and the final draft (which will hopefully be available in stores sometime later this year!) is vastly different. The final draft of the first chapter alone is longer than all ten of the "Teen Ink" chapters put together.

I just finished the first page and it was amazing. I thought I was a good writer (atleast for being 11) but that was awesome. Keep writing! :P

It's written mainly for teenagers, but the characters are all adults.
