Missing at 17

For most of Candace’s life she never felt like she completely belonged. But nothing could prepare her for the shocking discovery that her parents have been concealing the truth about who she is and where she came from her entire life.

Feeling like her world has been turned upside down, and unable to trust the people she’s closest to, seventeen-year-old Candace runs away…right into the arms of an alluring stranger.

But while Candace and Toby have an undeniable connection, it’s less certain what the future holds for them as Candace’s family and Toby’s less-than-legal lifestyle threaten to rip them apart.

As things start to spiral out of control, Candace must fight to understand her own identity… and who she can truly rely on.

Pregnant at 17

Seventeen-year-old Chelsea doesn’t go looking for trouble, but somehow it always manages to find her. Not only is her father taking off to work on a dangerous crab boat, the man she testified against is getting out of prison, and she’s just discovered she’s pregnant.

So when help comes in the most unlikely of forms—Sonia, an odd but generous woman who comes into the shop where she works—Chelsea isn’t sure how to react. As the two women begin to form a friendship, though, Chelsea begins to believe she’s finally found someone she can trust.

But Chelsea should know better than anyone that people aren’t always what they seem, and when she discovers Sonia’s true identity she’s left reeling.

Faced with a difficult decision at the same time her past comes back to haunt her, Chelsea must do what she’s never had the courage to do before—fight for herself. And now, fight for her baby as well.

Murdered at 17

Pretty and popular, seventeen-year-old Brooke Emerson is the envy of her classmates—and even some of her closest friends. But while she seems to have it all, Brooke has never felt so lost.

Ever since she sustained a head injury during a cheerleading stunt the previous year, she’s suffered from a disorder that causes her to fly into uncontrollable, sometimes violent rages. As hard as she tries to keep it together, she finds herself in danger of jeopardizing her seemingly perfect life.

It isn’t until Brooke meets Jake, a handsome and charismatic stranger, that she feels like she’s found someone who not only understands her, but accepts her for who she is. As tempting as it is to get swept up in the romance, she can’t help but feel like something in their relationship isn’t quite right.

When her best friend is brutally murdered, Brooke has no choice but to depend on her new love… especially because she’s worried that she might be the killer.
