Daniel Hayes's acclaimed trio of books about best friends, Tyler and Lymie, has established a tremendous following and earned the author two ALA Best Books for Young Adults commendations.

His fourth book, Flyers, which introduced a new cast of characters, was a nominee for a 1997 Edgar award by the Mystery Writers of America and was named a 1998 Best Book for Young Adults by the American Library Association.

Coming Soon...My Kind of Crazy

Ciaran Quinn craves adventure. Having grown up with Harry Potter, Frodo Baggins, and Luke Skywalker, Keer dreams of having his own high adventures. Of course, he does most of this dreaming from the climate-controlled, burglar-alarmed comfort of his own home, or in the cushy stadium seating of his favorite movie theatre. But this is about to change. Like his hero Herman Melville, who once attended his high school (before going off to sea and being captured by cannibals), Keer is about to set sail on his own adventure. What was supposed to be a simple weekend in Lake Placid with his best friend's cousin Alan, soon morphs into the experience of a lifetime-one he would have gladly avoided had he seen it coming.

Climb aboard for a wild road trip with Keer, involving a gorilla with a cockeyed sense of humor, timesharing with a pair of disgruntled gangsters, and coming to grips with the wonderfully wacky Trinkles, a family who seems determined to put the "fun" back in dysfunctional.

With Lemons

"Tyler's unique, deftly drawn character highlights this carefully crafted, powerful story. As a mystery, it is intriguing, but as a novel about introspection and self-acceptance, it is irresistible."

"With one of the best opening chapters in recent memory, Daniel Hayes's debut novel is a first-rate mystery....Instead of solely creating a thriller according to formula, Hayes has taken the time to write a novel with texture and nuance."
