When a young Muslim high school student is accused of a crime she didn’t commit, her school counselor gets involved to clear her record in this ripped-from-the-headlines romantic thriller.
When Lily Simon finds cops in the lobby of the high school where she’s a guidance counselor, she’s not surprised: cops and adolescents go together like sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll. But when the cops take Jamila, a Muslim student, into custody for a crime she didn’t commit, Lily’s high school becomes a powder keg.
Police think Jamila is responsible for a hit and run, and since she’s not talking, they have no choice but to keep her as the main suspect. And since the victim—a young soldier recently returned from Afghanistan—is lying unconscious in the hospital, the whole town is taking sides on whether or not Jamila’s arrest is religious persecution. Determined to find the truth, Lily teams up with a reporter to uncover what really happened the night of the hit and run. But Lily didn’t expect to find such a tangled web...
I know. It's a little confusing. Four names and as many genres, but they're all me. I've always been a reader. I love all kinds of books. Mystery and romance and adventure and romantic comedy and young adult and urban fantasy and, well, just about anything to be honest.
The best advice I ever received about writing was to write the book I wanted to read. Well, I like to read a lot of different types of books so I ended up writing a lot of different types.
I hope you'll take a minute to explore and find out more about the books I've written. Make sure to sign up for my newsletter if you want to be sure to know when I have a new book out or other news.
