MY IVORY SUMMER
Published 2011 by Coral Moon
Marcus Tully has problems; he’s in love with a girl he’s never spoken to, he’s overweight, he’s about to finish high school and has no idea what to do with his life, his best friends are slowly drifting away, he hasn’t seen his mother in years, and he doesn’t trust his step-mother’s motives for marrying his father.
And then there’s the dead girl in the woods….
In the next few days truths will be revealed and secrets unearthed… and Marcus’s life will never be the same again.
Shortlisted for the National Self-Publishing Awards 2012.
Judges Comments: A gritty thriller, My Ivory Summer, plunges the reader right into the thick of the action and maintains a relentless pace throughout. Particularly impressive are pages where Philip uses creative typography and layout - difficult for the self-publisher to get right.
