What a thrill! My young adult book, THAT NIGHT, published by Evernight Teen Publishing is available in ebook and print - and the print copies are now in my hand! So thrilled! To hold my book in my hand is such a thrill and an honor - I'm so grateful to the folks at Evernight Teen for believing in my work. I'm busy working on other books, but for now I will enjoy having this book in my hands.
What's the book about?
On what was to be just another Monday morning at school, Luke’s girlfriend Jessica is nowhere to be found. Names like ‘psycho lover’ follow Luke to his locker, even from his best friend. Luke soon learns Jessica tried to kill herself at a party from the previous Saturday night, and she’s blaming him. With posts on FaceBook feeding the rumors of what happened that night, the school has to investigate.
Torn between worry, guilt, loyalty, priorities, and an urgency to clear his name and protect hers, he has to find her—he loves her no matter what. The teacher in the middle of the investigation is also the same one to provide academic and character references for Luke’s college applications due by the end of the week. Luke knows he’s not to blame, but with no contact from Jessica and everyone blaming him for what happened, he’s at risk of losing everything—Jessica and his dreams of being a mechanic—all because of what happened that night.
