Code of Silence, by Tim Shoemaker

Had I known this review was out there, I would have shared much sooner! I edited this book with Tim Shoemaker. It was the book that got me hired at Zondervan. Tim and Code of Silence were originally acquired by Kathleen Kerr, then read by YA editor Jacque Alberta. When I called to talk to Tim about the edits, I first told him, “You’ve had the benefit of three authors working on this!” Then I said, “Do you have time? You might want to sit down…”

The result? Code of Silence was named one of the Top Ten Mysteries for Youth its pub year. Code of Silence and the next two books in the series all received starred Booklist reviews.

Don’t take my word for it. You can look at the other reviews. And the books speaks for themselves. Look for more on the creation of this story in upcoming Slush Pile stories on ChildressInk.com.
