2008

Available: paperback, library binding, kindle, audio

   LITTLE SECRETS: NO ACCIDENT is the second in the series about three teen girls and two teen boys whose lives intersect. All five have secrets to hide. All five have secrets to uncover. All five are immersed in their own private dramas of self-discovery and private schemes. The story slips from character-to-character as their worlds seem to implode upon one another.
   All in all, the book is one big teen soap opera. It's got it all. Misplaced loyalties. Broken relationships. Back stabbing. Secret pasts. Revenge. Betrayals. Blackmail. Lies. Twisted friendships. Social climbing. Unrequited love. And more. True to the soap opera format, only some of the issues raised are resolved with a slew of new ominous threats lurking in the shadows for the next book in the series.

TARGET AUDIENCE: grades 7-9
MYSTERY / SUSPENCE: ever present
KID APPEAL: girls who like drama
