Throw Away Teen By Shannon Kennedy
A survivor of too many foster homes, B.J. Larson is content living at the youth center where your status is determined by how long your arrest record is. And hers is lengthy. Then she’s placed in a home in the small town of Stewart Falls, Washington—with foster parents who will “love” her, not just the money the state pays for her care.
B.J.’s not stone stupid. She knows a scam when she sees one. Kids like her never get “real homes,” much less “real families.” She learned a long time ago that adults can’t be trusted. Besides, B.J.’s too smart to take chances. And isn’t love the biggest risk of all?
This is the story of B.J Larson who is a ward of the state and who is possibly being adopted by Liz and Tom.B.J hasnt had affection,she has acted out to get out of bad foster homes.She has been beaten down.B.J doesnt know what it is to be loved and to love herself.In this story you will watch as B.J overcomes her fears,finds love and the best of all..learns to love herself.
First of Wow.What an emotional story.What an amazing Debut by Shannon Kennedy.If all of her future releases are this amazing..well she is going places.The best part of the story is I felt B.J's emotions..her turmoil.When an author is able to make you feel so strongly about something,I say thats a sign of an great author.Liz and Tom..they are what I would hope all soon to be adopt/foster parents would be.If that was the case the world would be such a better place.There was one person in the story I couldn't stand.. however I will let the reader figure that one out and not spoil it.
I highly highly recommend Throw Away Teen.Its emotional,it makes you angry..it sucks you in.You do not want to miss out on this.Shannon Kennedy,You have written an amazingly great book.I look forward to your next work and you have me as a fan.
