Ten years ago, God gave Braden a sign, a promise that his family wouldn’t fall apart the way he feared. But Braden got it wrong: his father, a well-known Christian radio host, has been accused of murder. His fate lies in his son’s hands; Braden is the key witness in his father’s upcoming trial. Braden, who has always measured his self-worth through his success at baseball, faces the prospect of playing against Alex Reyes (the nephew of the police officer his father is accused of killing). Braden faces an impossible choice, one that will define him for the rest of his life, in this brutally honest debut novel about family, faith, and the ultimate test of conviction.
Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone won’t be published until June, but you can read a 28-page excerpt TODAY just by clicking on the book cover! Here’s a quick plot summary from the publishers:
Samantha McAllister looks just like the rest of the popular girls in her junior class. But hidden beneath the straightened hair and expertly applied makeup is a secret that her friends would never understand: Sam has Purely-Obsessional OCD and is consumed by a stream of dark thoughts and worries that she can’t turn off. Then Sam meets quirky Caroline, who introduces her to Poet’s Corner, a hidden room and a tight-knit group of misfits who have been ignored by the school at large. Sam is drawn to them immediately, especially a guitar-playing guy with a talent for verse, and starts to discover a whole new side of herself. Slowly, she begins to feel more “normal” than she ever has as part of the popular crowd . . . until she finds a new reason to question her sanity and all she holds dear.
