The Best People In The World!

Wednesday, June 8, 2011


Cleo Neilson's best friend is moving away and she wants to make Lola's last night in town special. For Cleo, that means going to the big Christian concert in the city, but her mom won't allow her to go. She says that area of the city is too dangerous for two unchaperoned teenage girls.

Convinced her mom is just being overprotective "helicopter" mom, she sneaks out of the house. After all, her mom has to let her grow up sometime, right?

Cleo now faces the chilling consequences of her actions and a secret that is eating her up inside. As Cleo fights through her grief and guilt, she learns about faith in God and forgiveness through him.

In Melody Carlson's new novel, Shattered, the reader gets to explore deception and its consequences through the story of Cleo and her overprotective mom. Considered spoiled by most of her friends, Cleo's facing a graduation without her best friend who is moving away. Faced with finding the perfect way to celebrate one final night, what no one knows is exactly what things will be placed in motion by one simple phone call to her mother.

This is such a compelling read for anyone who has teenagers and provides a safe way to experience what happens to one family when things go too far and get out of hand. This is a must read and comes with a 5 out of 5 star rating. It's edgy, controversial, and definitely a wake up call to everyone from parents to teens.

I received this book from Glass Roads Public Relations for my honest review and LOVED it! As a parent, time is so precious and this was a wake up call for me. For more information about this book, the author and where to get a copy, please click on the link below:

  1. Wow, this sounds like an intriguing book. Why is it that we can't listen and take advice when we are young and have to learn from the consequences? I know you enjoyed this one.
