Every year on the Spring Equinox, the shadow of Kukulkan can be seen as it descends from the top of the pyramid at Chichén Itzá. This year could be the year that a mysterious boy introduces another to such wonders it will change his life, and maybe even intertwine their future.
Sixteen-year-old Jayden Sutton is looking forward to time off from school for spring break. Lots of time to sleep-in and take it easy. When a last-minute chance trip to Cancun presents itself, Jayden and his family are all excited to go. The idea of a week at the beach sounds like heaven, and he can’t wait to see what else there is to do at the tropical paradise.
Hadwin Patil lives in Cancun with his family. His father has passed down his love and knowledge of their Maya heritage, and for Hadwin it’s more than a passing interest. When he spots a red-haired boy about his age on a tour of the ancient city of Chichén Itzá, he’s drawn to him, and soon they’re enjoying the sites together with his unique insights and knowledge.
A chance meeting or fate, only the two of them can decide if it lasts longer than Jayden’s vacation. A Young Adult novel centered around the Spring Equinox, the magic of Chichén Itzá, and young love.
