MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released author Tess Almendarez Lojocano’s novel “The Book of Zane.”
Zane Huston has an uncanny ability to understand his fellow ‘nutcases’. He’s lived in mental hospitals all his life. When he’s transferred to the controversial Tower Project, director Tony Aberran, recognizes this and ends up consulting with Zane as much as treating him.
But as easily as Zane solves other peoples’ problems, he is helpless when it comes to solving his own. It’s not until he tries Tony’s new therapy, writing The Book Of Zane, that memories start fighting their way back, pounding him with questions: How did his mother die? Where is his father? And just as Zane is on the brink of understanding, he comes up against a violent nutcase with a dastardly plan to destroy the asylum and end his entire way of life.
Now Zane finds himself in a race against time to solve one final mystery before it wipes out the Tower, the staff and all of the inmates, including a man Zane suspects is his father and a girl that he loves.
