FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—Author Stacy Padula has revamped her Montgomery Lake High young adult book series and released updated 2018 editions of all five of her novels. She believes it is important that each high school generation can relate to her books and that they address the most prevalent teenage issues of today. Padula is currently writing another teen book series, The Shadow’s Grip, which she hopes will hit the shelves of Barnes & Noble in 2019.
The fact that this is a universal story is the most appealing thing about the book. It also focuses on teenage relationships which are very appealing to middle school and high school aged students. Teenagers often look to movies, tv, and books and apply the lessons or stories they see to their own lives. This book focuses on a love story and various relationships which makes it a very entertaining, yet still educational read, including elements of both drama and comedy which grasp the attention of the target audience. The character development is also very appealing and creates a story that is able to resonate to teenagers.
