Rockland resident Stacy Padula’s first book, “Montgomery Lake High #1: The Right Person,” was published in August by Strategic Publishing Group.

It is the first of five novels in the Montgomery Lake High series, which follows a group of high school friends and their struggles with substance abuse and finding faith.

“I wanted to write a realistic series to represent what really happens in high school,” the 27-year-old author said.

She began writing the first book when she was a high school student and resumed writing in 2006.

The second book of the series, “Montgomery Lake High #2: When Darkness Tries to Hide,” is expected to come out in the spring.
