About BITTER BETRAYAL
Love, Trust, and Betrayal!
They say there are two sides to every story, and somewhere in the middle lies the truth. There’s no exception to this one. Impaired decisions, questionable actions, and consequences with irreversible damage destroy the lives of two young teens. High school junior Payton Phillips is dating the boy she knows she’s going to spend the rest of her life with: Reece Townsend. An opportunity for the dating teens and their friends to have the night of their lives–an invite to Stacie Wiggin’s party–will go down in the books as epic. But when things escalate and emotions run high, the evening of their dreams turns into a nightmare of he said, she said. Who did exactly what that night? As teens tweet, Snap, and play their stories out online, social media threatens to ruin more than the teens’ reputations. Relationships, scholarships, and entire families are at stake. Whose side of the story will you choose to believe, his or hers?
Bitter Betrayal demonstrates how the simplest actions in the name of fun can have devastating consequences. Some results are everlasting and can’t be undone. Often circumstances and decisions themselves due to the maturity level of impressionable teens is confusing and leaves lasting emotional scars that can take years to overcome, if ever. Consequences of reckless actions can put kids, families, friends, and communities at risk. Decisions made while impaired change relationships and lives forever. Tough choices and situations that can too often destroy a teenager’s life brought to life in such a way that teens will enjoy the book while being forced to think twice about their actions.
