Secrets: Visible and Invisible Anthology

posted in: Books | 0

Secrets: Visible and Invisible is a collection of short stories by seven CatholicTeenBooks.com authors. As described by Mark Hart of Life Teen International, who provides the foreword, “Each story reveals something different about the human heart and our constant (though, often veiled) desire for truth and virtue.”

Secret (n.) – something kept hidden from knowledge or view; a mystery.

In a dystopian future, an innocent picnic turns deadly!

Elijah knows nothing of the elderly stranger’s secret past–until her disappearance changes everything.

A mysterious, ever-changing painting alarms a group of teens.

The cannonball took Dario’s legs . . . Will he lose his soul too?

The arrival of a mysterious girl challenges everything about Jason’s life.

An unlicensed driver. His dad’s truck. What could possibly go wrong?

An old tale of murder and forbidden love leads to a modern day treasure hunt.

For nothing is hid that shall not be made manifest, nor anything secret that shall not be known and come to light. (Luke 8:17 RSV-CE)

“This is one of the best short story collections I’ve ever read! Each one fit the theme perfectly, and yet no two stories were remotely alike. I felt like I’d opened a box of chocolates, and ALL of them were delicious!”

“Seven great stories with characters you identify with and care about – hard to do in a short story. I love the reveal of the secret in each story. You want to read again and look for clues. Perfect for teens since it is never boring or preachy.”
