The critics agree that Telemachus and Homer, available through Amazon, is a fantastic adventure for young adults. Through the reinvention of Homer as a young woman and a peer of Telemachus, author Scott Locke provides a coming of age story for a new generation of readers.

Fans of mythology and fantasy who are intimately familiar with The Odyssey as well as those who have never read it will enjoy following Telemachus as he struggles to come out of his father’s shadow and Homer as she tries to prove that she is more than the person whom her community has defined.

Reviewers’ praises include:
