806: A Novel

Who is donor 806? His three kids are going to find out.

Sibling 1 throws blenders and plays guitar. Sibling 2 is allergic to everything and is into magic. Sibling 3 is a varsity swimmer with a group of female fans. Enough said. The only thing they have in common is their biological father, and the only thing they can agree on is that they all want to meet him. With the help of a broken-down, “borrowed” Jeep, KT, Jesse, and Gabe make their way across the country evading police, trying their luck on the slots, and meeting a life-changing pig, all to track down Donor 806, their father. Any hope of success requires smarts, luck, and ingenuity. Good thing they have each other…even if they don’t see it that way.

Meet the Author


Internationally known lyricist with songs in films from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and How the Grinch Stole Christmas to Superstar and Tropic Thunder, Cynthia Weil has written countless pieces for film, theater, and artists like Kanye West. Weil has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and has been honored with multiple Grammy nominations and received two Grammy awards. It is only fitting, then, that 806 has a teen songwriter as its main character.

Weil currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband and song-writing partner, and dog Callie. When not writing lyrics, you can find Cynthia fighting for animal rights, supporting young artists, or crafting her next book filled with music, dynamic relationship, and discovery.
