Here’s what it’s about:
The sheriff’s son, Kellan Turner, is not the golden boy everyone thinks he is, and Romy Grey knows that for a fact. Because no one wants to believe a girl from the wrong side of town, the truth about him has cost her everything–friends, family, and her community. Branded a liar and bullied relentlessly by a group of kids she used to hang out with, Romy’s only refuge is the diner where she works outside of town. No one knows her past there. But when a girl with ties to both Romy and Kellan goes missing after a party, and news of him assaulting another girl in a town close by gets out, Romy must decide whether she wants to fight or carry the burden of knowing more girls could get hurt if she doesn’t speak up.
It’s a dark and difficult book, but it’s also beautifully written, mysterious, suspenseful, and thought-provoking. Buy it here, try the library, or email your Tumblr URL to firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP, and we’ll see what we can do ;) There’s also a great pre-order deal that comes with one of Courtney’s previous books!
We’ll start on pub date, April 14th—more detailed info and instructions will be posted soon. We can’t wait to talk about the book, hear your stories, see your art, and show the broader reading community that we hear and believe the stories of women and girls.
