I’m Sticking with You is all about how to get along.  There are times when friends do overstep their bounds but you can spend too much time with them.  But when you get back together things are good.   It’s so fun to watch the Squirrel’s facial expressions throughout the whole book.


The Grace Year: A Novel Cover Image
$16.99
ISBN: 9781250145444
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Wednesday Books - October 8th, 2019

Every girl looks to the Grace Year, every woman remembers the Grace Year, yet no one talks about what happens in the Grace Year. 
This is dark and gritty, and very Mean Girls with a twist of Hunger Games and a hint of Handmaid’s Tale thrown in.  No one knows why the girls that survived did and why the others died.
Liggett writes a very fast-paced thriller that will keep you on the edge and reading to find out what happens in the end.
