Bestselling Rowan Slone Series Continues in Piercing Sequel A LIFE, FORWARD by Tracy Hewitt Meyer
An Appalachian teen must learn to manage self-harm impulses and her dysfunctional family relationships in this emotionally charged and realistic young adult series.
By: BHC Press
Rowan's story continues in A Life, Forward as a senior in high school. She has a new job and a safe place to call home. She's close to achieving everything she's ever wanted—a sense of family and a sense of purpose. But when relationship issues arise, the emotional cracks resurface, threatening her future. Rowan must find the courage to fight for the most important thing yet—herself.
"As an addictions counselor, I've seen my share of teenagers dealing with pain and emotional suffering," says Tracy Hewitt Meyer. "My hope is those suffering will use Rowan's story as a source of hope and strength—hope that there is a future worth fighting for, and strength to take one step at a time."
Readers will easily relate to—and cheer for—Rowan Slone as she learns to manage her pain and eventually break free from the past.
