The Eye-Dancers is a middle grade/young adult adventure from Michael S. Fedison.
The Eye-Dancers, and the author Michael S. Fedison, did a fantastic job taking me back to my middle school days. This is why I would recommend this book to middle school students as well as the young at heart. This book is well written and captures the life as pre-teens facing the normalities of life and the supernatural. I kept turning each digital to page to find out what was going on and what would happen next. Pick up your copy over at Amazon.
Seventh-grader Mitchell Brant and three of his classmates inexplicably wake up at the back edge of a softball field to the sounds of a game, the cheering of the crowd. None of them remembers coming here. And as they soon learn, “here” is like no place they’ve ever seen. Cars resemble antiques from the 1950s. There are no cell phones, no PCs. Even the spelling of words is slightly off. A compulsive liar, constantly telling fantastic stories to garner attention and approval, Mitchell can only wish this were just one more of his tall tales. But it isn’t. It’s all too real. Together, as they confront unexpected and life-threatening dangers, Mitchell and his friends must overcome their bickering and insecurities to learn what happened, where they are, and how to get back home. The answers can be found only in the mysterious little girl with the blue, hypnotic eyes. The one they had each dreamed of three nights in a row before arriving here. She is their only hope. And, as they eventually discover, they are her only hope. And time is running out.
