Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Christina Leigh Pritchard was born in Plantation, Florida but grew up in the Delray Beach/Boca Raton area. She started writing as soon as she could read and tortured her grandmother with the sound of clanking typewriter keys until her favorite Aunt Carolee gave her a Macintosh computer; a treasured heirloom as it originally belonged to her late grandfather who went out of his way to encourage and inspire Christina's writing. The computer is older than the writer but still works! (These days, it's an XP she creates with, her Aunt Carolee-a great inspiration and encouragement and yes, Grandma Jan gets a migraine if she even thinks about a typewriter!) Christina's passions are writing, reading, exploring, traveling, collecting elephants, her dog, Teacup, learning all about people she meets and the ocean.

More About the Author

Christina Leigh Pritchard was born and raised in South Florida. Her first stories were written at the age of nine in $0.15 wide ruled spiral notebooks (which were supposed to be used for class) ;o)~ and in the various diaries she kept. Stories she wrote from age nine to twelve fill about four storage boxes!

Since she's upgraded to a computer, she's completed over fifty books and still going strong. Her genre's include dark fantasy, young adult, drama, suspense, historical romance, multicultural, comedy, poetry and many more.

Her main aspirations in life are: her dog, Teacup; the beach, writing and well, writing! The author says, "I breathe novels. Is there really anything else worthwhile besides writing and of course faith?"

What she says:

The most rewarding thing a person can do:

1. "Give all of your excess. You don't need it so why store it and allow it to collect dust?"

2. Listen to the stranger next to you whether on a bus, plane, park bench-whatever. Learn all you can about them and then notice how in such a short amount of time they had the ability to teach and/or change you!

Format: Paperback
this book was real. Characters real. Situations real. Emotions real, and the way issues dealt with by the teens were real. I recommend this book. In fact- I dare you to read the prolog and try NOT to want to keep reading!
