Only 3 left in stock (more on the way). Though the break comes rather conveniently through Eric’s discovery of incriminating photos on a phone, Harvey does create a modicum of suspense by keeping the villains faceless until near the end and builds to a climax in which Amy contrives her own escape just before Eric and the police arrive.

Wat!?
Imagine you wake up one morning to find out that the person you've been calling your mom, really isn't your mom. Instead, she's your aunt, and your real mom is dead.

In the book BULL'S EYE, that is exactly what happens, and it sends Emily on a journey to find out who her real dad is, and find out who her mom was. Little does she know the secret that lies between her real mom and dad when she visits the school her mom used to go to.

When she returns to school after unraveling her past, she is mad at everyone and everything. To relieve herself, she goes to the school and starts drawing graffiti on all the walls, and she makes them bull's eyes. She does this for awhile until she gets caught.

To keep her from being in the court system they gave her a buddy to talk to. Her name is April. Emily could tell there was something wrong with April, but she wasn't sure what. She soon learns that April's dad abuses her, but can't find a way to tell anyone.

Will she eventually find the courage to speak out about this?

BULL'S EYE is very good and an easy read, and I recommend it.

Emily's life explodes when she discovers that her aunt, recently deceased, was actually her mother. She embarks on a journey to find meaning to her life. Her anger leads her to paint bulls-eyes on a school building. While the plot jumps around a bit, teens who gravitate to books about abuse and acting out against parents will enjoy it.
