Publisher Comments:

When a soccer field complex springs to life seemingly overnight in the sleepy community of Skary, Indiana, and the local coffee shop begins offering computer access along with its suddenly overpriced beverages, goosebumps start popping up all over town. Has soccer mom Katelyn Downey hatched a diabolic plot to turn their slow-paced town into a den of hip suburban iniquity-or is this the perfect solution to the communitys financial woes?

Even as concerned residents take sides over their towns future, many are dealing with changes of a more personal nature. Novelist Wolfe Boone cant seem to find the right niche for his post­—horror writing efforts, and his new bride Ainsley-known for executing complicated events with penache and perfection-is bewildered by her inability to control something as seemingly simple as scheduling a pregnancy. Frustration turns to envy when her wacky friend Melb discovers, to her utter terror, that she and husband Oliver are expecting a baby.

Through its quirky characters and winsome humor, Boo Hiss offers unexpected insights into the various ways people respond to change and demonstrates that growth often occurs amid the most difficult-and hilarious-circumstances.
