Alissa Sullivan has got it made — a supportive, loving family, a cause she believes in, and her new boyfriend. With her best friend Kat at her side, she was counting the days until the end of high school when they could go away to college together. Then she met Scott, a man who wouldn’t touch her but would turn her life upside-down.
Katherine Horne is perfectly content being in the background. All she wants is to graduate and get out of the town she’s grown to loathe. She’d do anything to avoid confrontation but when she finds herself in increasingly humiliating situations, she realizes some things can’t be ignored. Especially when it comes to bullying.
With their carefully planned futures unraveling, Kat and Alissa will come to realize the bond of their friendship will be tested… and might not make it through intact.
This is book 1 in a 3 part series.
Review by Courtney
Alissa and Katherine are best friends. Dealing with the drama of high school, being a teen girl and just growing up in general they are a constant in each other’s lives. While Alissa begins a relationship with Matt, Katherine is on her own in the craziness that is teenage girl-dom. However, no matter the directions that their lives take, they are always there for one another as support and best friends.
Beginning this book, I thought that main theme would be bullying. While it was a large focus, there were so many other themes within this story that just hit the nail on the head. Being a teenager is hard, being a teenage girl can be hell! It was easy for me to relate to both characters, to understand them and in a way to be there with them emotionally with what they were dealing with. Alissa and Kat go through some serious issues between their Junior and Senior years in high school. I admire their friendship, that no matter what is going on in their lives they always turn to one another instead of deserting each other. There were a few unresolved issues at the end of the book, but I am extremely anxious to see how the rest of the story unfolds and what lies ahead for Alissa and Katherine. 5 out of 5 books

About the Author
Evelyne loves to read many different genres. She always thought about writing and was finally… inspired by her friends to give it a try. Without her great support system, her first book, “Destroying the Wrong,” would have never happened!
1. Her favorite movie is “So I Married an Axe Murder.”
2. She can sing every song, word-for-word on Adam Lambert’s first album.
3. Monsoon storms and winter drizzles help inspire her writing.
4. Football is her favorite sport even though the Cowboys have not had a good season in a really long time.
5. She loves school and would become a professional college student if it weren’t so expensive.
6. She tries hard to be funny but most of the time is the only one in the room laughing.
7. People watching and giving relationship advice is her favorite past time.
8. What she wants to be when she grows up is still an unanswered question.
