Happy Book Birthday - Amanda in New Mexico!

The month of October is a very busy one for Central Avenue – we have three titles releasing! The second book celebrating its launch into the world is Amanda in New Mexico: Ghosts in the Wind by Darlene Foster. This is the sixth book in the Amanda Travels series and we’re very proud to welcome this new volume.

Intrepid traveller and 12 year-old sleuth, Amanda Ross is on a class trip to Taos, New Mexico. She spends most of her time with two of her classmates: the funny Caleb and the more quiet and nervous Cleo who insists she sees ghosts. Although Amanda is determined to prove there is no such thing, she can’t seem to shake the feeling that something or someone is watching her. Together, the friends visit an ancient and beautiful landscape where a traditional hacienda, an ancient pueblo, and a haunted and spooky hotel all hold secrets to a wild and violent past.

Does Cleo really see ghosts? Can Amanda escape the eerie wind that follows her everywhere? Perhaps The Day of the Dead will reveal the mysteries of Taos in this latest adventure of Amanda’s travels.

Just in time for Halloween, this book is an entertaining and slightly spooky tale of friends, history and ghosts. We’re also offering a giveaway with a copy of the book, and some fun activities for kids - and adults too. Scroll down to enter!
