What happens when the lies you tell grow so high you can’t see the truth?
To the outside world Avery Denton’s life looks happy, normal even. But it isn’t. Not even close. She believes nothing can make it worse. When her mother skips town with their banker, the small-town gossips focus on her.
Jaxson Stewart, Avery’s neighbor and friend, has had a crush on her for years. She makes his heart race, which is dangerous for a boy with a heart condition. Unlike their community, he refuses to hold her mother’s actions against her.
Avery’s summer heats up when Jaxson kisses her under a star lit sky. The rest of her life boils over, though, when Avery becomes the target of revenge, her alcoholic father’s anger escalates, and long-hidden family secrets come to light.
Can Avery find strength in the truth? Or will she continue to struggle through knee-high lies?
Knee Deep (Work in Progress)
The biggest bomb ever blew up in Avery’s life when Knee-high Lies ended. Now Avery is living the aftermath of a father who is uber involved in her life, and a newly sober mother who faces terrible odds of staying sober. Avery’s love life is finally secured, and her best friend Sophie’s boyfriend is a dot in the rear view mirror. However, her other best friend Katie has fallen prey to the school’s biggest player. And if that’s not enough, she has a new half-sister who she doesn’t get along with. Normal is a relative term, especially when you’re Avery Denton.
The fun isn’t over as Avery continues to navigate the turbulent waters of high school, love, and finding a new normal.
