SUPRISE RELEASE - If I'd Known by Rebecca Donovan

“What better way to amplify the anticipation than a surprise release—especially for a series filled with suspense and mystery.” – Rebecca Donovan


If I’d Known by Rebecca Donovan

Release Date: December 15th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary YA


IF I'D KNOWN, the surprise first installment in a new, edgy contemporary YA series from Rebecca Donovan, the bestselling author of the Breathing Series is available now!

"We're all cursed—every single one of us."
Lana Peri isn't afraid of telling anyone exactly what she thinks, even if it gets her into trouble—which it usually does. But the thing is, she can't lie. Her unfiltered honesty doesn’t exactly make her many friends, although it does get her kicked out of class regularly. Lana knows the truth will eventually be her undoing. If only she’d known it would begin today.
It’s meant to be a night Lana and her best friends will never forget. And it is... for all the wrong reasons. Lana witnesses not just one, but two violent crimes committed by the same person. Except she can't say a word. Not if she wants to protect her friends.
Lana’s silence will implicate her and inadvertently cover for him. But it’s not like she has a choice. He is powerful. Connected. Untouchable. And a friend of Joey Harrison—the guy Lana is uncharacteristically drawn to the moment they meet. Joey’s also the only one who is told the truth.
His lies will ruin her. Her silence will keep them safe. The truth won’t save any of them.


MY 5 STAR REVIEW


I can't say I was blown away by reading this story. And what you are thinking is wrong. What I mean is that I've come to expect greatness when reading a Donovan story and I wasn't disappointed. I could only be blown away if I hadn't known before going in that it was going to be better than good.

Make no mistake, this intense and thought-provoking story about how one person’s actions can impact others will have you on a journey destined to keep you reading until the final page and enjoying the ride to get there.

How to explain further? Let's say that I love that a story by this author has meaning. That no one is perfect and that we all have flaws. But there is still beauty in them.

I can't say that I loved Lana throughout the story. What I can say is that I loved her snarkines; her love for her mother, family and friends. I loved her strength. I didn't always love her actions, but she's a teen allowed to make mistakes. And without her flaws, we couldn't read and ride this journey of self-discovery with her.

There are too many spoilers to say more.

And as I did while reading, I will wait on the edge for the next installment to take this reading train wherever it will go. I hope I don't have to wait too long.

My Book Boyfriend is Joey.
