Random Rebecca (and her ebook launch!)

Rebecca is another friend I have had the pleasure of meeting through the wonderful world of blogging. We have hung out together for the past couple of years at the a-z challenge where she has added a bit of sunshine (come on, look at her) and passion for important issues. I always appreciate how Rebecca makes me think about not only being a better mother, by what conversations are important to have, but a more understanding person overall.
Rebecca Green Gasper is an author, speaker and photographer. She writes young adult contemporary fiction on tough teen issues, new adult sleuth mystery series, historical fiction, and non-fiction. She was a high school teacher, tutor, and coach before becoming a writer. She is passionate about raising awareness on teen tough issues and speaking out against teen violence. She loves pinwheels, bright colors, daisies, long talks with friends, and time with her family. She grew up in the mountains of Colorado and now lives outside of Denver with her husband and two children. You can find her at www.rebeccagreengasper.com.

I had the pleasure of reading an advance free copy of Rebecca's latest ebook.

When college student Harley Jenkins finds out she’s on probation with her university for something her roommate has done, she decides to distract herself with the mysterious death of a local girl by hiding out in small spaces even though she’s claustrophobic. Will Harley be able to solve the mystery before it takes the lives of more girls, or will she have to back out to solve her own problem?

Harley is a great character who is not perfect by any means, but is comfortable with her quirks. This alone is an important message for young adult readers. The subject matter is presented in a way that respects the importance of what is happening to these girls without feeling like a force fed message. Not all of Harley's issues are tied up neat and tidy by the end of the story, so there is plenty of intrigue as to what will happen in the next installment of the series.
