More of the Montgomery Lake High books were read in an Atlanta prison. Here is the review of The Right Person:
After working closely with teenagers for many years, I saw an urgent need for realistic young adult books. With teenage suicide, drug abuse, and bullying on the rise, I knew something had to be done to help teens realize their worth. Teenagers have far too much value—each and every one of them—to throw themselves into the downward spiral of substance abuse. Through the eyes of a variety of characters, my books share valuable life-lessons that point teenagers towards success and fulfillment. It is my hope that these books will help teenagers overcome the harsh battle between gaining social acceptance and being true to their own convictions.
