**CYBILS AWARD NOMINEE!**

A perfect gift for preteens, teens, and adults who are curious about what its like to train to become a doctor!

"Intriguing. Incredibly engaging. I highly recommend this book. Its definitely a read you wont forget." - Amy, Goodreads


What if you could be a doctor by the time you were fourteen years old?

Fourteen-year-old Connor Hansen became a doctor two days ago--along with all of his friends. They are child prodigies who were selected at just three years old to undergo intensive medical training as part of an experiment called Kid Docs.

KID DOCS tells the story of Connors first days as an emergency room doctor. Connor experiences his first pangs of love (toward fifteen-year-old obstetrician, Cassie), deals with his explosive older brother (a sixteen-year-old heart surgeon), and tries to figure out why his friendship with fourteen-year-old fellow ER doctor Hannah has suddenly changed. At the same time, Connor learns to save lives and discovers that some lives cannot be saved.

KID DOCS has been selected by educators as recommended reading for middle school students across the United States and the UK.

What people are saying about KID DOCS:

"This was one of the only books I found that was age appropriate for my middle school children to cultivate their interests in the field of medicine. A great starting point for conversations about the work of a doctor and to engage children in discussions about the medical profession" - Nick, Amazon

"Soooo good! 11 year old could NOT put this down! She wants to be surgeon and said this was the best book ever." - AC, Amazon

"The hospital setting was rich and accurate, with enough medical details to pique the curiosity of kids who might be so inclined, or to feed the fascination of adults who like to watch medical shows. I always appreciate dramatic suspense in a novel, and this one had it. Plenty of plot points kept me reading: finding out how the kid docs will react to the pressure, the fate of the patients who come into the hospital, and even the fate of one of their own." - Jennifer Donovan, 5 Minutes for Books

KID DOCS by J.W. Lynne is an educational new coming-of-age novel for preteen, teen, young adult, and adult readers. If youre searching for unique gifts for future doctors whether theyre in middle school, high school, college, or medical school, KID DOCS is a perfect choice. The book will also appeal to boys and girls who enjoy novels similar to YA and middle grade best sellers like ENDERS GAME (by Orson Scott Card), WONDER (by R.J. Palacio), or SPY SCHOOL (by Stuart Gibbs), and to fans of television shows like THE GOOD DOCTOR, GREYS ANATOMY, ER, and DOOGIE HOWSER, M.D.

Dont miss this chance to slip behind the scenes into a world that few people ever experience first-hand, the life of a physician in training.
