DON'T BREATHE A WORD galley pages have arrived!
This is my last chance to make changes/corrections, so wish me keen eyes and pointy ears for the next several days... Real book coming soon!
UPDATE: here is the official flap copy:
Joy Delamere is suffocating.
From asthma, from her parents, and from her darkly sexy boyfriend, Asher, who is smothering her from the inside out. She can take his cruel words, his tender words…until the night they go too far.
To escape, Joy sacrifices her suburban life to find the one who offered his help, a homeless boy called Creed. He introduces her to a world of fierce loyalty, secrets, and love—a world she won’t easily let go.
Set against the gritty backdrop of Seattle’s streets, Holly Cupala’s powerful new novel explores the subtleties of abuse, survival, and redemption. But above all, it is an unflinching story about the extraordinary lengths one girl will go to discover her own strength.
