C. Lee Mckenzie Releases SUDDEN SECRETSby BWW News Desk - Mar 25, 2015
Author C. Lee McKenzie is pleased to announce the release of her fourth young adult novel, 'Sudden Secrets.' This new work explores the power of the human spirit to heal from life-altering events.
Cleo Brown keeps her tragic secret bundled inside. When she stumbles onto a decades old mystery, she discovers a tragedy as terrible as hers that changed a young girl's life in the 1960's.
Cleo has struggled to heal after her baby sister's death, but the flashbacks to the accident won't go away. With the move, she vows to keep her tragedy a secret and avoid pitying looks.
Something's strange about the abandoned house across the street-flashes of light late at night and small flickers of movement that only someone looking for them would see.
Everyone says the house is deserted, but Cleo is sure it isn't, and she's sure whoever is inside is watching her.
In one night, Belleza's life changes forever. So famous, her only choice is to hide her secret from the world so she can silence small town bigotry.
Then Cleo happens.
Sudden Secrets is available in print and ebook formats.
