New Daniel Kraus Available

Local young adult author Daniel Kraus recently saw his latest book, Rotters, go into publication. The book takes on the macabre act of grave robbing in a story about a teenage Chicago high school studen whose mother dies in an accident and is sent to live with his strange father in rural Iowa. Watch the trailer below, read some sample chapers on Kraus's website, then pick up your own copy at an independent bookstore near you.
