LOOKING FOR WHY

LOOKING FOR WHY

By: KASS, Pnina

Young Adult, Forthcoming

Adam and Michael, both 18, end up at SELA VILLAGE on the shores of the Sea of Galilee at exactly the same time. Adam is looking for his father, Michael is fleeing his, and they both have secrets that neither wants to share. They’re housed by the cheery Brian Wicklow, an Irish expat who is eager to give the boys the space that they both need to heal – Adam from the death of his mother to cancer at a very young age, and Michael from his past and from the burns that cover his entire body. The spiritual commune on the shores of the Sea of Galilee might be just the place for them, except the leader of the cult-like group is an ex-physicist with a strange Kabbalistic philosophy who also happens to be Adam’s biological father: Professor Cameron Fell, or as he likes to call himself, “Avraham,”.

When some of Professor Fell’s followers rise up to challenge his authority, things take a violent turn. He disappears, and the boys suspect a kidnapping. They take to the hills to find the Professor, but what they don’t know is that they’re being followed. Adam and Michael will have to work together and look harder than they ever expected to, both within and without, to find the culprit, save a leader that they never truly claimed as their own, and find the answers that they both came looking for.
