In her 16-year-old upscale Lowcountry, S.C. life, the biggest problems Emily Amber Ross has had to face run along the lines of designing alternative Halloween costumes, losing five pounds before school pictures, sourcing aromatherapy candles and finding a bridesmaid dress out of season. Until she hears an old gospel song that leads her to question who she really is. When she launches an Internet A dangerous crush, a disturbing world of police, judges, phony exams and disappearing parents… How can a routine school assignment go so wrong? Positioning: Young Adult market, with crossover to Middle Grade and Adult fiction. This book should appeal to the general mainstream market given its accessible, realistic and issue-driven subject matter. Its fast-paced storyline and absorbing narrative from the point of view of a 16-year-old girl makes it particularly appropriate for grades 8–12, but it also has a built-in market of parents and children negotiating the family court system. It also has drawn interest from professionals in the family court arena, from attorneys in the divorce and custody industry to therapists, social workers and academics. This title also should have strong word-of-mouth sales internationally, as per McQueen’s previous titles. This title is available in trade paperback through Ingram for the library market.
