Excerpt and Trailer for “Those Who Believe”

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Those Who Believe will be out later this month, and in recognition of YALSA Teen Read Week, I thought I would include a teaser here. Those Who Believe is a young adult suspense novel. You can find a trailer and summary below. Sign up for my mailing list (click the button to the right) or continue to watch here for the official release.

“I think that you’re sick, Nathan. Am I right?”

Nathan cleared his throat to answer, but the muscles in his throat were too tight to form the words. He swallowed and shrugged.

“Do you want to tell me about it?”

He cleared his throat again. “It’s… it’s private,” he said hoarsely.

P.D. Workman, Those Who Believe

Watch the trailer, and read the summary below.

These signs shall follow those who believe…

On the run from Social Services and others who do not understand their beliefs, Nathan and his mom, faith-healer Billie Ashbury move into yet another a new town.

Nathan again faces the challenges of making new friends and of keeping his family’s secrets. But what he really struggles with is his wavering faith and reconciling his actions with what his devoted mother has taught him from the cradle. Could disobeying her ever be right? His life could depend on the answer.
