A Flicker in the Clarity
Coming June 2018, HarperTeen
Evie and Emma are best friends, an inseparable pair, sharing everything important, laughs, dreams, secrets, fears—and even the loss of Emma’s older brother—until Evie makes a flip decision that has serious consequences for Emma. A seemingly irreparable rift opens between them and Emma freezes Evie out.
Reeling from the loss of her best friend, Evie meets Theo, a boy with a different take on the world. He helps lift Evie’s spirits, but just as she’s about to let herself fall into something new with him, Emma resurfaces in need of her friend. Erratic behavior, drunken mishaps, and panicked phone calls are a few of the hoops Evie finds herself leaping through while she tries to divert Emma from her path to self-destruction. Evie wants her friend back but is losing herself in the process. Can you save someone who doesn’t believe she can be saved?
