PRLog - April 5, 2012 - Ms. Hoyle has been motivating her students with her literary creation for several years. In an age of video games and text messages, teachers often find it challenging to engage middle grade students in literature. Ms. Hoyle found a solution through the imaginary world she created in The Six.
“Fantasy can awaken childlike awe and inspire heroic, self-sacrificial behavior. It is a crossover genre that speaks across ages, and the best genre to speak to a generation of young people who seriously need wonder in their lives. This is why I wrote The Six.”
Part of the magic of The Six is the relatable characters that Ms. Hoyle has created. This first novel revolves around Darcy Pennington.
Darcy hates her life. She is an insufferably average teenager with no real friends, crushing social anxiety, and an indescribable sense of not fitting in anywhere. Then a change in her dad’s job forces her to attend Cedar Cove Family Camp where she once again finds herself on the outside of a tight-knit social circle of five.
After unwittingly stumbling through a magical gateway to a new world called Alitheia, Darcy begins to realize there might be a higher purpose for her life, and she eventually convinces the other five teenagers to travel there with her. Once there, they learn the “arrival of the Six” was prophesied hundreds of years before, and that they must expel an ancient evil from the land. Will Darcy have what it takes to save Alitheia? Or will she fall prey to a deadly foe?
Although The Six was written for a young adult audience, it is a fantasy novel at its core. Readers of all ages will be enthralled with the memorable characters and the mystical world that Hoyle has created.
