Conor Grennan - Author

About the Author

Conor Grennan is the son of Irish poet Eamon Grennan, who has won the PEN Award and published frequently in the New Yorker. He grew up in a house often filled with his father's friends -- Billy Collins and Seamus Heaney. In the autumn of 2004 he started a travel blog to keep in touch with his friends and soon discovered he had inherited his father's passion for writing. With Next Generation Nepal -- the non-profit organisation he set up to rescue trafficked children in Nepal -- still going strong, Conor has now moved back to the US, where he lives with his wife Liz and his baby son.

Young readers will find action, suspense, and a perilous battle between good and evil in The Hadley Academy for the Improbably Gifted from New York Times bestselling author Conor Grennan. For ages 10 and up, this dystopian fantasy novel follows a boy's unlikely journey to save humanity as he unravels his true identity and the responsibility it comes with. Jack Carlson is dreading a class presentation when he suddenly finds himself transported to the Hadley Academy, a secret institution that tracks teens with unlikely gifts and trains them to protect the world from an unseen squad of killers. But Jack isn't the only one who doesn't know what he's doing at Hadley. Despite indications that he is the one prophesied to end the ancient Reaper War, Jack appears to have no extraordinary abilities. So when dark, mysterious forces grow, Hadley is in a confused panic. Much to everyone's dismay, humanity seems to depend on Jack and his new teammates. Can Hadley's rawest recruits push past personal struggles and enormous doubts, develop their dormant powers, and stop the spreading evil? And are they willing to commit to Hadley's motto, One Life for Many, and make the ultimate sacrifice? The Hadley Academy for the Improbably Gifted might be just the place for Jack after all. This action-packed novel will captivate readers with its riveting plot, relatable characters, humorous dialogue, and dynamic illustrations.
