(Independently published, July 19, 2020)
What would you do to protect the ones you love? Attempting to recover from a painful past full of loss, Elizabeth Dayton finds herself again in a world full of violence. Upon a shocking discovery regarding her closest friend, Margaret Thompson, and a disastrous encounter at school, Elizabeth and her family are plagued by legal issues and other troubling events. In order to make sense of the chaotic present, Elizabeth attempts to look into the mysterious past of her town, Seacrest. As the lives of her friends and family continue to unravel, she soon becomes suspicious of everyone, including those she loves most. Nothing is adding up, and nothing is making sense, but Elizabeth is set on finding something to make sense of everything. Content Warning-Out of respect for both young and or new readers of this title, as well as friends and family who intend to purchase this as a gift for a loved one (given the very mature nature and themes, I advise only high school students and adults should read this title), I found it important to caution all about some of the content in this book. Some scenes and descriptions may be very upsetting, disturbing, or triggering. I care about the emotional safety of my readers, therefore I found it necessary to inform you of some of the content this book contains. Below is an overview of the content readers should be advised of: Many scenes with various forms and degrees of bullying, violent fights, death and suicide, self-harm, and child molestation. Remember: it is okay to put the book down, take some time away from it, and talk to a loved one about any content that is particularly upsetting. Please enjoy the book, but also take care of yourselves as you read ahead.
