A ‘FAMILY IN PERIL’ TRANSGENDER YOUNG ADULT BOOK
What would you do if Russian mobsters wanted to torture and kill your entire family? Natalie Lancaster grabs her sons Bill, 13, and Tommy, 11, and they run for their lives. They must leave everything behind—their possessions and their past—in a desperate attempt to survive.
To throw the killers off their trail, they buy false identities from a shady dealer. But the only identities available for the boys are as middle-school girls. Unwillingly they masquerade as girls and continue running. But changing cities, names, ages, clothing, and even their gender, can’t keep the truth from themselves—they never really were the people they thought they were.
The brothers make a Pact to stay boys, no matter what. But Tommy finds that acting like a girl has stopped being an act, that he may be transgender, while Bill doesn’t want any part of the masquerade. Meanwhile, the killers get closer …
A Companion to the books Desperate Measures and The Network.
Here’s what readers have said about “The Pact”
Another brilliant story by Karin Bishop … Her treatment of differing family life choices has the ring of realism and emotional credibility … Well researched and well written … Almost makes you feel you’re part of the story or wish you were … An excellent Companion book …
