Fran Cannon Slayton 

Fran Cannon Slayton is the author of When the Whistle Blows (Philomel Books, a division of Penguin Young Readers Group, June 2009). Ms. Slayton's editor is Patricia Lee Gauch. When the Whistle Blows is reminiscent of classic tales by Jack London, William Golding and Robert Louis Stevenson, yet carries the remarkable, fresh voice of its author. Fran Cannon Slayton should be extremely proud of this, her debut novel. Ellen Hopkins, author of Crank and Identical and National Book Award finalist With wit and warmth Fran Cannon Slayton recounts a steam-driven coming of age story in the last of the real railroad days. Richard Peck, author of A Year Down Yonder From its whip-smart opening to its look at the complexity of father/son relationships, Slaytons loving novel takes a long hard look at the death of people and that intangible idea of home . . . When the Whistle Blows stopped me in my tracks. Elizabeth Bird, A Fuse #8 Production (School Library Journal)
