Congratulations to Lee McKenzie for the release of Shattered, her latest riveting story about a teenager who overcomes seemingly insurmountable problems:
Nineteen-year-old Libby Brown is on her way to the winter Olympics for her shot at the Gold. But on a last practice run, an out-of-bounds snowboarder collides with her, and she wakes up in a hospital unable to move her legs. Terrible accident they say, but was it? Or did someone want her off the U.S. slalom team? Libby must find the truth or remain shattered forever.
I haven’t read this yet–just finished another book by Lee, Princess of Pulgas (a page-turner–I’ll review it soon). I’ve reviewed Not Guilty, Double Negative, and Some Very Messy Medieval Magic (click for my reviews)–(almost) all about kids facing impossible events that would break most of us. Lee shows how to overcome and thrive.
I’m a native Californian who grew up in a lot of different places; then landed in the Santa Cruz Mountains. I write most of the time, hike and practice yoga a lot, and then travel whenever I can.
In my young adult books, I take on modern issues that today’s teens face in their daily lives. My Evernight Teen Publication, Double Negative was voted as one of the best top ten Young Adult books, 2019. My other books, The Princess of Las Pulgas, Sliding on the Edge, Sudden Secrets and Not Guilty are out to four and five-star reviews.
