Cam is finally settling into his new life in Laos when tragedy strikes and he’s wrongfully accused of murder.
Eighteen-year-old Cam Scott is angry. He’s angry about his absent dad, he’s angry about being angry, and he’s angry that he has had to give up his Ottawa basketball team to follow his mom to her new job in Vientiane, Laos. However, Cam’s anger begins to melt under the Southeast Asian sun as he finds friendship with his neighbour, Somchai, and gradually falls in love with Nok, who teaches him about building merit, or karma, by doing good deeds, such as purchasing caged “merit birds.”
Tragedy strikes and Cam finds himself falsely accused of a crime. His freedom depends on a person he’s never met. A person who knows that the only way to restore his merit is to confess. The Merit Birds blends action, suspense, and humour in a far-off land where things seem so different, yet deep down are so much the same.

Read information about the authorOnce upon a time there was girl named Kelley. Kelley was terrified of the math centre in her grade school classroom, but man, that creative writing centre made her smile. In her spare time she wrote stories - lots of stories – about rainbows and ghosts and horses named Frankie Hoof Powell. As she grew, she came to believe that being a writer was pretty much impossible, so she decided to do other things. She went to Indonesia and lived in a one-room hut with a family of 6 villagers and accidentally dropped her sarong while bathing in the village river. She got mistaken for a drag queen while teaching English in South Korea; chased monkeys away from children while volunteering in India; and got tricked into marriage in Laos.
Kelley was still allergic to math, but she studied stuff anyway - politics at Queen's University and international development at the University of Guelph. She became a yoga and meditation instructor too. Still, something was missing. It wasn’t until Kelley had three small children and no time to write that she decided to get serious about stories again. The result is The Merit Birds, her debut novel, coming from Dundurn Press in May 2015. Please read it. Please like it. Frankie Hoof Powell does.
