Olympic Vista Chronicles

Delve into the mystery of the strange, small town of Olympic Vista, WA.

“Pawlik has a flare for writing about this period and I could truly visualize the eighties vibes through her description of music, fashion and even food.”

“Story carries a nice and easy narrative that engages the reader.”

“I love this series, it is a coming of age set in a small [town] Washington where weird things are happening…It really does show us the trials of growing up.”


Life is good, if mundane, in Olympic Vista. Twelve-year-old Adelaide Winter and her friends spend most of their time biking around or hanging out in the Pacific Northwest town. Crushes, troubles at home, and the latest music or comic book release are their biggest concerns. Sure, there are rumblings of what happens at the secure research and development facility locals call The Link, but the adults about town assure the children there is nothing to worry about. And adults never lie, do they?

Darius Belcouer’s arrival in the summer of 1986 changes everything. Together with their friends, Darius and Adelaide are determined to figure out exactly what the small town is hiding.

An eager new kid, a deadpan music-lover, a fast-talking troublemaker, an anxious bookworm and a girl torn between popularity and adventure. Follow this group of friends as they delve into the mysteries of their small town while juggling the trials and tribulations of their home lives.
