Teen Read Month Special: Our Favorites - Tell Me a Secret

Today's Teen Read Month pick is from Danielle, our Teen Librarian at the Mill Creek Library who 's life was changed by Tell Me a Secret.

"I actually don’t have an all-time favorite teen book. I don’t even have a favorite book. The teen book that changed my life was Holly Cupala’s Tell Me a Secret as it made me want to be a writer and tell my own stories. Tell Me a Secret is about the dark struggle of a girl who must let go of her past to find a way into her own future. In the five years since her bad-girl sister Xanda's death, Miranda Mathison has wondered about the secret her sister took to the grave, and what really happened the night she died. Now, just as Miranda is on the cusp of her dreams—a best friend to unlock her sister's world, a ticket to art school, and a boyfriend to fly her away from it all—Miranda has a secret all her own. When two lines on a pregnancy test confirm her worst fears, Miranda is stripped of her former life. She must make a choice with tremendous consequences and finally face her sister's demons and her own."

If this book sounds good to you, you might enjoy books from our brand new Realistic Fiction booklist, too.
