New school, new friends, hot football captain and an invite to a Friday night party could spell disaster. Karla trusts anyone who will befriend her. This is just the way she is. But should she really be so trustful?

Karla moves from her rural childhood home to the bustling city unwillingly when her parents lose their home to foreclosure. She makes new friends almost immediately. After they invite her to a party so she can go out on a date with the football captain, she convinces her parents to let her sleep over her newly made friend's house, Carol. Maybe she is a bit too trusting of these new friends of hers. She begins to have second thoughts about going to this party at the last minute. Maybe she shouldn't have been so trusting?

I won this in the member giveaways and was sorely disappointed. I felt that the main character was whiny and a caricature of a high school girl. She complained bitterly about very minor things that her parents did. The book over all was very predictable and could use editing. Read full review

About the author (2010)

While in high school, Linda discovered her love for reading fantasy. It all began with the Tolkien Hobbit series. From there she found Ann McCaffrey's Dragon Riders of Pern. After that she couldn't stop reading fantasy.

After high school she moved from Massachusetts, where she grew up, to New Hampshire. That is where she raised her two now grown children. Her daughter blessed her with a granddaughter three years ago. These two children brought issues in to her life while they were in their teens, sparking her to begin writing Teen Contemporary. This was how the Wings from Ashes series came about.

But her love for fantasy is still strong, leading to her desire to write her fantasy series. Orgarlan Saga is her escape from reality series. She has had a lot of fun writing it too.

When Linda isn't writing, she likes being in her garden. She is also a knitter, crocheter, and a reader. The rest of her time is spent with her dog Julie, two cats - Sam and Gracie, and her pet laying hens.

She still lives in Southern New Hampshire.
