Pallotta utilized marvelous word imagery, unique metaphors, and dealt with timely topics. (Comments from the Grace Awards)
FOR TEENS, THE TEENS IN YOUR LIFE AND TEENS AT HEART
Things are not what they seem in peaceful
Mistville, North Carolina.
Margaret McWhorter enjoys a laid-back Freshman year
in high school flirting with Jimmy Wilmore, swimming and hanging out with friends--until that day. Her brother, Sean, suffers
a stroke from taking a steroid. Now he's lying unconscious in a hospital. Margaret's angry at her dad for pushing
Sean to be a great quarterback, but a fire of hatred burns inside her to make the criminals pay.
Looking for justice,
she takes Jimmy and her best friend, Emily, through a twisted, drug-filled sub-culture. A clue sends them deep into the
woods behind the school where they overhear drug dealers discuss Sean.
Time and time again they walk a treacherous
path and come face to face with danger. Even the cop on the case can't stop them from investigating. All the while Margaret
really wants to cure Sean, heal the hate inside, and open her heart to love.
