About the Book

Seventh-grader Mitchell Brant and three of his classmates inexplicably wake up at the back edge of a softball field to the sounds of a game, the cheering of the crowd. None of them remembers coming here. And as they soon learn, “here” is like no place they’ve ever seen. Cars resemble antiques from the 1950s. There are no cell phones, no PCs. Even the spelling of words is slightly off.

A compulsive liar, constantly telling fantastic stories to garner attention and approval, Mitchell can only wish this were just one more of his tall tales. But it isn’t. It’s all too real. Together, as they confront unexpected and life-threatening dangers, Mitchell and his friends must overcome their bickering and insecurities to learn what happened, where they are, and how to get back home.

The answers can be found only in the mysterious little girl with the blue, hypnotic eyes. The one they had each dreamed of three nights in a row before arriving here. She is their only hope. And, as they eventually discover, they are her only hope.

And time is running out.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "The Eye-Dancers is a well-crafted book that centers around 4 middle school boys that are living in the middle of something unexplainable. The friends are all caught in a nightly nightmare, centering around a girl with strange, hypnotic eyes. It doesn't take long for them to realize that they are all sharing this dream, and they find it unnerving. It's just the start, though. The boys are fixing to enter into something they would have never imagined, not in a million years! [...]" - Rose Wynters

- "The Eye Dancers is a well-written, intriguing story that immediately captured me and kept me locked in to find out what was going to happen next, evoking suspense, fear, sadness, and laughter. A tale of imagination and fantasy, but yet believable, with its plot that involves lessons learned during adolescence - an age that we can all relate to as being a time of growth, literally and figuratively. A truly entertaining read! " - 24/7 in France
