CLIFTON PARK, NY, March 13, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Internationally published New York Times bestselling author, Mark Cheverton, releases his 27th novel. In his latest book for kids ages 7-13, FACING THE BEAST WITHIN, Cheverton addresses the difficult topic of ANXIETY in a gripping, action-adventure story.

Sixth-grader Cameron Poole struggles with anxiety every day . . . a nonstop, losing battle. But when Malphas, a demon from a parallel world, decides to invade his summer camp, Cameron’s anxiety, his Beast, shifts into high gear. If he is to save his friends, Cameron must stand up to this nightmare and confront his Beast before everything he cares about is destroyed.

FACING THE BEAST WITHIN puts you into the head of a child with anxiety but also layers coping strategies throughout the story.

Cheverton worked with a large team of psychologists, social workers, and licensed mental health counselors to learn about the symptoms of anxiety as well as how these professionals treat their patients. These learnings, coupled with Cheverton’s own experiences with his son’s anxiety, were woven throughout the story and form a teaching tool for parents and therapists while at the same time offering kids a spine-tingling adventure that will keep them turning the page.

This story adds to Cheverton’s impressive portfolio of published novels. With over 2,000,000 copies sold worldwide, Mark has shown that he continues to be a significant figure in middle-grade fiction.
