Description

Billy Buckhorn: Paranormal is the second installment of Cherokee author Gary Robinson's Cherokee teen Billy Buckhorn Supernatural Adventure Series. Book one Abnormal of the Billy Buckhorn series introduces a Cherokee teen who uses his supernatural abilities to solve mysteries. Billy's powers grow in Paranormal, the second book in the series, when Billy and his friend Chigger continue their adventures in a hidden cave they discover. After a horrifying accident at the cave, Billy's supernatural abilities strengthen when he returns to life in the emergency room after being pronounced dead. The story heats up when Chigger becomes possessed by an alien creature. Billy knows that all the trouble started in the cave and realizes he must return there in order to save his friend. What he doesn't know is that the horned serpent known to the Cherokees as Uktena is lying in wait. 7th Generation has a line of high/low teen fiction, PathFinders, to help Aboriginal students challenged with reading difficulties. Using First Nation main characters and plots that touch on culture-specific traditions, these engaging stories will spark a new interest in reading for these teens. This specific genre of novels are know as high/low books, written at a lower reading level but with high-interest, age-appropriate plots. Otherwise known in the industry as reluctant readers, these books feature linear story lines, limited vocabulary and short sentences. The layout and print size also contribute in making the books easier to read. Reading level: 4.5
