High in the Seattle Sky (Book Two of The Magic Carpet Trilogy)
Amanda Olsen is a girl who just wants to have fun because she knows that she’s going to die before she gets old. Cystic fibrosis took the life of her father, a rock guitarist in the grunge era, and it has her days numbered, too.
Amanda, a drummer who can really throw down, lives in the attic of a rooming house and works at Starbucks for medical insurance that covers the CF treatments she needs to live a little longer with her lifestyle of sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll.
Her drum rug, found stuck to a tree on Mount Rainier, happens to be the flying carpet that went missing in Portland. When she finally finds out what she’s got, the natural-born risk-taker pushes things to the max with some extreme carpet-flying.
A stoner and a staunch supporter of the legalization of weed, Amanda flies high (in the stoned sense of the word) and has misadventures as well as adventures, including a fly-by snatching that gives Bill Gates the shock of his life.
A new boyfriend and a new indie band that gains up-and-coming recognition have Amanda running on empty but still taking it to the limit.
Set in Seattle in the summer/fall of 2011, High in the Seattle Sky, Book Two of “The Magic Carpet Trilogy” is a comedy with a thundering backbeat and a kick-ass crescendo.
