I.R.I.S:

Intelligent Roaming Information Systems  

Recovering from COMA, fourteen-year-old Jay Garcia fears the doctors are wrong. The accident must have addled his brain. What else could explain the hallucinations? Yet once he figures out that the looming shadow sitting sentry on his hospital window ledge is not a figment of his imagination, he’s more than relieved: he’s eager to recover so he can join the top-secret IRIS project and work as an agent for the Global Nations Mission Control.

There’s only one problem. His parents must never find out. So when Jay’s uncle, the project leader, sends urgent message of a Triple Code Red threat, it’s immediately clear that Jay is the only one who can help.

What he least suspects is that the task will take him halfway around the world, and force him to confront a dangerous, extensive web of crime; knowing, if he fails, that his family will lose everything. And if his mom, Code name Mother-Bear, ever finds out what he’s up to she will definitely KILL him.

Jay has no choice. With his family’s lives and livelihood at risk, he has to succeed!

The question, is how?

Praise for Sumac Summer

A refreshing break from all the dystopian novels out there. I really enjoyed this book. It was powerful, well-written, moving, detailed, uplifting and motivational. The characters are memorable, there was lots of suspense, and great tension; and I just couldn’t read it fast enough because I wanted to know what would happen! I recommend this book: 5/5 stars (H.C. Grade 9).

The book brought out lots of emotion. It made my heart lift and soar. I would recommend it to many people. It was interesting and I didn’t want to stop reading it. It was heart-warming, hopeful, sad, relieving and inspirational. Overall, a wonderful book that gave me hope and made me think anything is possible! I loved it (E.C. Grade 7).

Sumac Summer is addicting, funny, sad, enjoyable and exciting. I liked the plot twists and how the characters are described. It’s a very interesting story that I could barely put down. I loved the ending! In general this story was amazing. I would definitely buy this book (N.A. grade 8).

I read this book and thought it was very interesting and well-written. I loved it! Definitely recommendable, I am sure my fellow book lovers would also love it. I would describe it as: memorable, informative, exciting and heart-wrenching. The characters are relatable and while it can have a sad mood I still wanted more…It was fast paced and never boring. I loved the ending. It was a great wrap to a great book (M.H. Grade 9).

Dear Author, your novel is evidently a hit! Here are the reviews [reading the book in one go was the easy part for both of these girls].

(Q.S. age 12) It was a really, really good book. The best ever! It was engaging and I loved it! A great story and great book. (L.B. age 13) Suspenseful, sad, realistic, water-loving, Sumac Summer was a great read. I could relate to the characters and I would recommend this book to anyone.

“I’m loving Sumac Summer. It keeps you engaged all the time, in waves. Frustrating that I don’t have enough time in the day to read because I can’t put it down! At the same time, I’m sorry to be finishing it so quickly. Maybe I’ll force myself to read slower, to enjoy longer…” Ana (Age 45).

5 stars: ” I absolutely loved this book! It had a great story line and lots of plot twists along the way that were exciting to read. Sumac Summer is all emotions and anticipation in one book and I recommend it for anybody around my age (13). It has a great story behind it and I would definitely read it again.” smile emoticon

Well, about the book! I read the whole thing in one afternoon because I just could not put it down! Yes, I cried several times and I just adored the story. I will recommend this book (C.B. age 57).

Humble appreciation to all who have written a comment or review. Thanks so much. G.M.
