The June Boys
“Thea’s cousin Aulus is missing and is likely the latest June Boy to be taken by serial kidnapper, The Gemini Thief, who has eluded authorities in her small town for over ten years. As we readers join the search with Thea and her three closest friends in their efforts to unravel the mystery, we uncover disturbing facts, weird coincidences, and oddball characters. The twists and turns keep coming. Intermittent chapters in the form of letters written in the first person voice of Aulus give a view of the captors’ predicaments and torment inside the hidden bunker. Tragedy and hope fill this page-turning thriller.”Becky, Rediscovered Books
This audiobook edition includes:
- The full-length, stand-alone Young Adult suspense novel

The Gemini Thief could be anyone.
Your father, your mother, your best friend’s crazy uncle.
Some country music star’s deranged sister. Anyone.
Someone is stealing Tennessee’s boys.
REPORT SUSPICIOUS BEHAVIOR.
The Gemini Thief is a serial kidnapper, who takes three boys and holds them captive from June 1st to June 30th of the following year. The June Boys endure thirteen months of being stolen, hidden, observed, and fed before they are released, unharmed, by their masked captor. The Thief is a pro, having eluded authorities for nearly a decade and taken at least twelve boys.
Now Thea Delacroix has reason to believe the Gemini Thief has taken a thirteenth victim: her cousin, Aulus McClaghen.
But the game changes when one of the kidnapped boys turns up dead. Together with her boyfriend Nick and her best friends, Thea is determined to find the Gemini Thief and the remaining boys before it’s too late. Only she’s beginning to wonder something sinister, something repulsive, something unbelievable, and yet, not impossible:
What if her father is the Gemini Thief?
