Trea Jones should be the happiest she's ever been. It's time for her Senior Year, she has a somewhat steady guy - Dave and it looks like she might have found a way out of the bigotry and poverty she's endured since her father's abandonment years ago. Then tragedy strikes and Trea has to dig deep inside herself to find what she's really made of. Through a circle of caring friends, Trea finds that no one has to go it alone.
"Where U @" is a book teens will race through and never forget! Trea is a character you will never forget and one you will want to emulate.
Here's a text for K.C. Sprayberry - "Fantastic! Write more!"
Her parental situation tops off her menu of misery. She's stuck living in a virtual shack with her overweight mother and grandmother who are generally drunk and fighting with each other when they aren't ridiculing Trea for her ambition and blaming her for their own ugly situation. Thus, Trea's set up for a senior year filled with obstacles to fulfilling her dream.
If all this weren't enough, her long-absent father enters the drama. He's a school bus driver who's as irresponsible now as he was when he deserted Trea and her mother long ago. Sprayberry's stories often contain a cautionary element, and in this case, it's texting while driving. In an action appropriate to the novel's title, Trea's daddy's the culprit. The one bright spot in the picture is her boy friend, Dave, a stand-up kid with a stable family who is the quarterback on a high school team contending for the state championship.
There are plenty of high's and low's in this exciting page-turner. Sprayberry once again goes deep into the heart and mind of adolescent yearning, pain, and victory. When you pick this one up, your "where you @" will be with your nose buried in the pages till it's over, leaving you wishing for more.
