About the Book

Stanley and Hazel by Jo Schaffer
Release Date: May 15, 2018
Publisher: Month9Books

A great depression has gripped the city of St. Louis in 1934. Stanley, an orphaned newsy, lives in a poor part of town hit especially hard by the economic downturn. One night, Stanley runs into Hazel, a restless debutante in waiting who has begun to question her posh lifestyle in the midst of the suffering she sees. She’s out and about without an escort and against her father’s wishes.

When they discover the body of a girl with her head bashed in by a baseball bat, the very different and separate realities of the two teens inform their decision. Together they will figure out what happened to her and bring those responsible to justice.

But getting involved with each other and digging into the secrets behind this murder earns them some powerful enemies, including a secret group seeking to rid society of all they deem “undesirable.” They’ve put into motion “The Winnowing,” a plan seeking to take over the city and enforce their will.

As Stanley and Hazel’s forbidden feelings for one another grow, their investigation turns deadly. Now, it is up to Stanley and his gang of street kids to stop Hazel from becoming the next victim.

    Like the newspaper but not the models. I prefer to imagine my own choice of visual appearance for the characters in a book.

    Thank you for almost always providing giveaways that are open internationally!! The book world should acknowledge readers from other countries more!

    The cover is definitely different, but the expressions are somewhat weird. She looks glazed and he seems to be considering something maybe not so good.

  3. Jerry Marquardt says:
