TITLE: ALL ACCESS
GENRE: New Adult fiction
LOGLINE: Stella Moon wanted sex, drugs, rock-n-roll, and to forget. Jessie Morgan wanted music, friends, family, and love. Paige Lockhart wanted to bury them both and did by creating a new life for herself, but all that glitters is not gold as she’s about to find out.
I held the admission ticket to that party in my seventeen-year-old sweaty palm. A surprise high school graduation gift and early birthday present from my foster parents. Every kid I knew wanted what I held in my hands: two floor seats to see the almighty British band, Flux, perform at the Boston Gardens. The show had been sold out for months; getting tickets damn near impossible, but Ward and June a/k/a Bea and Davis Donovan knew people. They wanted to see me happy for once and got them for me. To say I was happy with their gift would be an understatement. I was ready to explode out of my Walter Dyer moccasins and student Levi’s. I think if the Donovan’s knew what they just handed me they never would’ve bought the tickets.
They’re good people. I kid when I call them June and Ward. I couldn’t have asked for two better people to come into my life. They tried hard to be my everything for me, but buying special gifts and baking chocolate chip cookies didn’t fix what lay shattered inside me.
I had a crushed soul and my angel wings lay broken and in tatters. The only thing keeping me glued together was my music and journal writing. I had no idea what I wanted to be, or where I would end up after high school, and honestly I didn’t care. The counselors told the Donovan’s I just needed time.
I didn’t need time.
My whole family was dead.
