Synopsis

#1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author David Baldacci as you've never seen him before! Fourteen-year-old Vega Jane lives in the village of Wormwood, where life is nasty, brutish, and short. Villagers have been told that there is nothing outside of Wormwood except for the Quag, a foul forest filled with terrifying beasts. No one comes, no one goes, and Wormwood has stayed this way for generations. Until Vega's friend Quentin Herms disappears. Quentin leaves Vega a secret message hinting that there's a way out of Wormwood and something extraordinary on the other side. As Vega begins to investigate, she realizes that Wormwood is a village built on dangerous lies. And that powerful people are willing to kill in order to keep it that way. Soon Vega is careening down a path that will either lead straight to the truth...or straight into an early grave.

About the Author

Author, David Baldacci, was born in Richmond VA in 1960. He had had a different plan for his life than most authors. He received a law degree from the University of VA and practiced in law for many years in Washington, DC. He actively began writing stories as a child after his mother gave him a notebook. As he got older he wrote short stories and screenplays without reaching much success. He then turned to writing a novel where he spent three years writing Absolute Powers in 1996, which proved to be a bestseller. He has published 29 bestselling adult novels and 4 children's novels.

Baldacci and his wife live in Vienna, VA where they are the founders of "Wish You Well Foundation". (named after one of his novels, "Wish You Well" which was also a screenplay for the movie starring Ellen Burstyn.) The Foundation works to combat illiteracy in the United States. Baldacci has over 110 million copies of his book in print.
