A Life, Forward
Appalachian teen Rowan Slone has left her dysfunctional, violent past behind. She’s ready for her senior year in high school, she has a new job that she loves, and a safe place to call home. Rowan is close to achieving everything she’s ever wanted—a sense of family, a sense of purpose, and a sense of self.
But there are cracks in Rowan’s new life as relationship issues threaten to send her future crumbling to the ground, including managing self-harm impulses. When her long-held secret is discovered, Rowan must find the courage to fight for the most important thing yet—herself.
“I wasn’t sure how I’d like it since I usually can’t stick with series, but I was pleasantly surprised with this sequel and I can’t wait to read the third. Rowan’s life comes with so many new twists and turns and it made for a quick read.”
