Author C.A. Hartnell’s award-winning, historical fiction four-book series, The 1950s Adventures of Pete and Carol Ann, including Scary Spring, Sinister Summer, Ferocious Fall, and Wild Winter, takes readers on a blast through her past as a child growing up in El Monte, California.

The four books, «SCARY SPRING: Our Polio Fright of 1955,» «SINISTER SUMMER: Cars, Cruisers, and Close Calls,» «FEROCIOUS FALL: Our Wild Weather Escapes» and «WILD WINTER: Christmas, Clues, and Crooks» are inspired by actual events from Hartnell’s childhood.
