TCBR: With so many blockbuster franchises targeted at YA and tween readers, why should a parent buy this book for their kid?

Indigo Jones: There are three reasons – a gripping story, a cool educational website and supporting Doctors Without Borders.

Sign of the Rat is a compelling thriller that hooks a reader for days. It moves like a rocket ride. Kids love escaping into a vivid, fast-paced adventure with realistic characters. When you finish the book and don’t want to leave the world behind, you can explore the reality behind the fiction at a Learning Center on the Silicon Valley Novel website. It’s a fascinating portal that explores the locations, creatures, art and science behind Sign of the Rat, rather like special features on a Blu-Ray or DVD. Proceeds from sales of the Trouble adventure series are donated to Doctors Without Borders. Each book purchased saves a child’s life.
