Chris Ledbetter in his new book, “drawn book coverDrawn” published by Evernight Teen introduces us to Cameron Shade.

From the back cover:  Caught between the sweltering fall landscape of Wilmington, NC beaches and southern illusions and expectations, all sixteen year-old Cameron Shade thinks about is art. That, and for Farrah Spangled to view him as more than just a friend. Cameron longs to win her heart through art.

After several warm interactions with Farrah, including painting together at the beach, Cameron discovers just how complex Farrah’s life is with her boyfriend and her family. Following a tense run-in with Farrah’s father, she forbids Cameron to ever speak to her again, but Cameron’s convinced there’s more behind the request.

To impress Farrah with a last-ditch effort, Cameron sketches her portrait. But the sketchbook he uses hides a dark secret. Farrah’s now in grave danger because the sketch he drew of her siphons her real-life’s soul into the sketchbook. Cameron now has twenty days to extract Farrah. To save her, he must draw himself into the book.

If he fails… they both die.

I think “Drawn” is an original concept. Cameron is given a sketchbook with the proviso not to draw people. However Cameron has such a crush on Farrah that he draws her in the book. This is when the story really takes off. Her life force is being drawn into the world of the sketchbook which is Terra Sempre. Now the only way to rescue her from being trapped in there forever is to go there himself. Cameron and Farrah are clever characters that will make you want to root for them to win and their romance to grow. The action and suspense will keep you flipping pages trying to find out what happens next. And the good news is there is a sequel coming.
