Before I Die by Jenny Downham
Story of a Girl by Sarah Zarr
and, I'd appreciate it if you considered reading Running for My Life, by Ann Gonzalez. Yes, it's my book, the story of a teenage girl who develops Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after being attacked by her schizophrenic mother. But, really it's a story about friendship and triumphing over horror.
I'm a new author, with a new publisher, and am hoping some avid readers will consider titles from WestSide Books. After all, at a times when publishers are shutting down, they're doing everything they can to bring you more books.
Thanks for being a reader -- writers are nothing without you.

In the last couple of years graduating seniors were asked what book read during high school they enjoyed the most. One of the favorites was "The Wave" (Can't remember the author) based on a true story of a teacher who was asked how the ordinary German people could be so taken in by Hitler and the atrocities committed in their neighbors. He did an experiment to demonstate the appeal and sense of belonging. I had never read it till one of the graduates told me I HAD to read it... and it was wonderful ... inspiring, yet entertaining for young readers
