Seeking String (Fitzgerald Book 1)

by Dee Chapman Plucinski

Growing up is always tough, but growing up while your world is falling apart gets…complicated. New challenges and new responsibilities are causing Fitz to work more and play less, and he doesn’t think he’s ready for everything that is suddenly expected of him. He has lost his best friend, his father is very sick, the Colony needs water, and the rattlesnakes are causing problems along the path below the front porch. How is he supposed to handle the City Rats who continue to trespass on their property? What is wrong with his little friend Peter, and how can he possibly find the courage to talk to the pretty girl who lives on the third floor?

By day, Fitz does his best to tend to the needs of his Colony and care for his friends and family, but at night he dreams of the treasure hidden somewhere in the abandoned mansion his Colony calls home.

Based on a true setting…High in the Rocky Mountains, this house actually exists. The rats, the rattlesnakes, the well, the treasure, the broken mirror in the driveway… they’re all really there. What happened in this abandoned mountain home in the decads humans forgot it even existed? Luckily, Fitz, a masterful storyteller, wrote it all down. Can he find the treasure, get his best friend back, and secure a reliable source of water for his Colony before time runs out? Sure he can, he only needs a few feet of string…

Join Fitz, Grip, Camden, Kaleb and a host of other delightful characters on this rollicking, laugh-out-loud adventure filled with mystery, intrigue, vicious predators and the uncomfortable realities of the early teen years. Our heroes deal with voice-cracks and bodily insecurities while displaying selfless courage, brilliant problem-solving skills, and dogged perseverance in the face of insurmountable odds.

“Courage is NOT the absence of fear, but rather the assessment that something else is more important than fear.” Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Doing the right thing is not the same as doing the easy thing, but learning the difference, learning to choose correctly and learning to follow through regardless of the consequences, is part of what causes a person to leave childhood behind and become an adult capable of leading a colony through their hardest, darkest days.

Seeking String is surprisingly complex and well thought out, yet enjoyable for ALL AGES. A fun, easy read that will leave you thinking about the well developed, memorable characters long after you’ve finished the book.

Shad has been given tremendous gifts that take his Family Dance (martial art) to a whole new level. As he learns to use those gifts, it becomes clear he was given those gifts to serve all of mankind.

Bethany is a Paladin prodigy. Her gifts have made her a paladin, warrior, healer and leader. Will those gifts be enough when all of Adlai needs her to step up?

Al is unique among dwarven nobility. He gets along well with humans for one thing. He has also created a magical axe with a unique personality, which is not unheard of, but has become uncommon. When his clan needs an ambassador to the Human kingdom, Al seems the perfect choice.
