Ocelot Emerson
 Publication Date: October 15, 2019
Publisher: Tantrum Books

 Twelve-year-old Bertie Blount is great at causing trouble. When she's forced to leave behind her dad and friends in North Carolina so her mom can marry the most boring optometrist in the world, Bertie has a chance at a fresh start.

But when Bertie arrives in Pennsylvania, she doesn’t just bring trouble; she brings disaster. In a moment of anger, Bertie unwittingly triggers an accident that puts her future stepbrother in a coma.

Broken and desperate to make things right, Bertie prays for a miracle. Instead, the universe gives her a pair of supernatural sunglasses, a wise-cracking doppleganger, and a terrifying ghost that sends Bertie on a dangerous mission to find the one thing that just might save her stepbrother’s life.

~~~ EXCERPT ~~~


“So what’s the story with these sunglasses? And who was that lady in the chapel?” I looked at Better Bertie beside me.
“You asked for help,” she said. “The glasses are that help, Alberta Einstein.”
    Hmm. She was mocking me. My kind of girl.
Ding. Fifth floor. 
As we entered the ICU, I gasped in shock. Better Bertie wasn’t the only one glowing. I stopped to stare at all the radiant people coming and going. Nurses and an orderly and visitors and an old woman hobbling past us with a walker.
“Freaky, huh?” Better Bertie said. All I could do was silently nod. “They are auras,” she said, walking two steps ahead of me. “Everyone, and everything that’s alive, has a certain… energy. The higher the energy, the brighter the aura.”
“I love it. I mean I really love it!” I said, watching the human light shows. 
“What’s that, young lady?”
Looking up, I saw the old woman with the walker, her aura a dull pea soup green.  She glared at me. “Did you just say you love me?”   
I hesitated, then said, “Well, yes.” 
The woman scoffed. But as she shuffled onward, her aura bloomed into a shiny emerald green. Better Bertie patted me on the back. “You’re a lot smarter than you look, Bertie.” Only no one heard her but me.  
My smile faded. 


About the author...

 Ocelot Emerson is the freakish result of a mad scientist's experiment gone horribly wrong. Born half magnificent cat, half malicious human, Ocie escaped from the secret International Prison For Wayward Creatures, and into a deep dark woods, only to be captured by a pack of ravenous ghost wolves. In a stroke of good fortune, the Great Spirit Wolves set aside their natural disdain for all things feline and accepted the cat person into their pack, where they taught Ocie how to hunt and tell bizarre yet heartwarming tales. Bertie’s Book of Spooky Wonders is Ocelot’s first novel aimed at feral and phenomenally gifted children. That means you, kid!
