Once again R.P. MacIntyre ups the speed limit with a collection of stories that are journeys into the delight and terror of emerging self-consciousness.
From a strange party in honour of a dying hamster to a young man's quest to find his missing sister, Revved resonates with the authentic experiences of today's youth and the reverberations of their extraordinary imaginations.
These are gripping stories about the mysterious distance between teenaged raconteurs and the adventures they experience. Readers of all ages will enjoy this supercharged collection.
"R.P. MacIntyre has joined Martha Brooks and Budge Wilson in making short stories for adolescents a hallmark of fine Canadian literature." — Quill & Quire
