20,388 wizards and 16,526 vampires!

I was thinking about how Anabar's Run is different from some of the other popular YA books. On a hunch, I went to and searched for "Wizards" and then "Vampires" and found 20,388 titles with "wizard" in them and 16,526 with "vampires" in them.
Anabar is neither of these literary clichés. I have to believe that readers are going to tire of them and be looking for something else.
Anabar is a normal young man who faces difficult, nearly impossible, tasks and decisions. I began Anabar's Run with the idea that everyone is capable of doing great things, and I believe this is a message young people should hear.
