The Gold Winner for "Best Teen Book" in the 2023 Readers' Choice Book Awards
Students at Montgomery Lake High believe the ominous clouds and impending storm will only bring a temporary interruption to their regularly scheduled lives. However, when the tempest grows worse and a classmate's life hangs in the balance, students must pull together to support each other and seek help for their friend. As the lines between cliques dissolve, dark secrets are revealed and hearts are transformed.
"The second installation in the 'Montgomery Lake High' series takes an honest look into the social lives of affluent high school students who are beginning to learn that popularity is not fulfilling their need for happiness. This book is desperately needed for its unapologetic look into the effects of drugs and alcohol in the lives of teenagers, as well as their journeys to escape such a destructive lifestyle." - Mackenzie Wells, University of Georgia
"The struggles of the young adults are authentic and reflect many of the issues that teens face today-bullying, drugs, sex, self-worth, and making good choices. I particularly liked how the author instills hope throughout the book and shows the reader how Jesus Christ truly can make all the difference." - Lorilyn Roberts, award-winning Christian Author
"The theme of light and darkness is relevant to everyone. No matter how old or young you are, the struggles of Jason, Chantal, and Chris will be applicable to your life." - Isabelle Semas, best-selling author of The Crash
