For the teen who's cotemplating the future and panicking, Archie offers an escape into the laid-back beach town of Outlandish, California. Archie's phobia of looking up into open spaces leads a narrative about the anxieties we all face — and it only gets more relatable when he meets the girl of his dreams and fears for his future come to light.
The resolution of Archie's coming-of-age story empowers young readers to embrace who they were born to be and to pursue their dreams with courage and confidence.
Illustrations by Abigail Kraft add even more appeal to this charming love story.
The Original Book Sountrack (already distributed worldwide) is a delightful mood-setting hybrid-orchestral soundtrack created by composer, Jared Kraft to accompany Lynnette Kraft's original novel. This relaxing and repeatable musical story beautifully represents the book's unique storyline, characters, and locations.
"A completely different type of book . . . Archie is one of those characters who readers will remember and identify with." --Feathered Quill Book Awards Judges' Comments
"A quick, absorbing read full of thought-provoking dialogue and warm moments . . . Offbeat, emotionally engaging, and authentic."
"Archie is a lovely soul and the romantic tale here is a delightfully gentle read . . . a sweet, perfectly clumsy love story."
Lynnette Kraft/Author —
Lynnette Kraft loves a good story—real or imaginary, inspiring or hilarious. She uses her own stories to entertain, to illustrate lessons, and to celebrate individuality, crediting God as the giver of all inspiration. When she’s not writing (or telling) stories, she’s likely chewing on herbs and wild plants, doing yoga in the sunshine, admiring pieces of nature, reading something light, or watching movies and playing games with her family.
Abigail Kraft/Illustrator —
Abigail Kraft is forever nine years old, believes in magic, and likes to draw pictures. She has decided, a childish spirit is her favorite avenue to creativity, so she fills her days with music, family, giggles, daydreams, and animated movies. Then (in true, childish fashion) she cries, grumbles, and sighs her way through unpleasant work, and shows her mom as soon as she’s made something she’s proud of. Most of all, she loves her Creator, who gave her a super fun life and promises her eternity in the most funnest place of all.
Jared Kraft/Composer —
Jared Kraft is a composer for film and media. His passion for music began with experience through listening, moved to expression through piano and eventually arrived at creation through composition. He finds his purpose and inspiration in his perfect Savior, his loving wife, and his wonderful family, and will always value the timeless phenomenon in which organized noise is translated into a universal language.
