NEW YORK - Jan. 17, 2022 - PRLog -- Tara's Family Secrets is a compelling YA novel and coming-of-age story set in the island of Jamaica. Tara has recently become a teenager who believes that having achieved this long desired milestone earns her the right to be included in whatever goes on in her family…leading to the discovery of some family problems which she takes upon herself to solve with her very limited knowledge of adults and their world. Another of her challenges is having to deal with her bullying classmate who is a constant thorn in her side. Tara survives her many escapades and emerges a wiser and more mature teenager in the end. Touching on universal themes, Tara's Family Secrets appeals to a wide global audience.

Author Dr. Cherrell Shelley-Robinson, a life-long educator and librarian, has written several books, many scholarly articles, served as judge on book awards committees, conducted workshops on writing for children, and is a passionate advocate of indigenous literature for Caribbean young people.
