The Usual Questions:

Is this the first in a series?
Does not appear to be, but please, someone correct me if I'm wrong!

What is the basic concept?


Kara hasn't been back to Oak Park since the end of junior year, when a heroin overdose nearly killed her and sirens heralded her exit. Four years later, she returns to face the music. Her life changed forever back in high school: her family disintegrated, she ran around with a whole new crowd of friends, she partied a little too hard, and she fell in love with gorgeous bad-boy Adrian, who left her to die that day in Scoville Park....
Amid the music, the booze, the drugs, and the drama, her friends filled a notebook with heartbreakingly honest confessions of the moments that defined and shattered their young lives. Now, finally, Kara is ready to write her own.

Is the cover art favorable?
It's funky and fun and is definitely attractive.

What are some of the author's other works?
I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone
