DescriptionJuvenile delinquents are vanishing from Lakeview, Michigan. Brilliant fifteen-year-old Story Black has heard that the smartest kids go from jail to a special school--and then on to college. The mastermind behind it all is Lakeview's newest citizen, Charlotte Barnaby, a former high school principal and winner of the largest lottery jackpot in history. Char brings her powerful billions back to her dying hometown, determined to save it and the worthiest children--regardless of what it costs. Story plans to be next. Getting arrested is easy but getting out of Lakeview may be impossible. Standing between her and her new life is her mother Patty, a meth user with a genius I.Q. and a mysterious past of her own. Char launches an elaborate scheme to convince Patty to let Story go, but Patty is an immovable force, unwilling to put Story's happiness before her own. If Story wants the future she sees, she must confront her mother and be willing to lose everything--even their relationship.

About the Author
Ann Roberts is the author of numerous romance and general fiction books, as well as the award-winning Ari Adams mystery series. Ann is a native Arizonan who should have been born near an ocean and a lighthouse. She loves to find a beach whenever possible and has set several of her stories near the Pacific Ocean. She recently married her partner after nearly twenty-one years together, and she wonders how such a wonderful woman would tolerate living with a writer for so long. For many years Ann was an English teacher and was thrilled every time a high school student found the joy of writing. While many of her budding author protégées promised to split the royalties of their future best sellers with her, she has yet to see a check from any of them. Ann enjoys a good joke, excellent red wine, watching movies, debating social issues, reading (of course!), going to plays and spending time with friends. She loves hearing from readers and can be reached through her website, annroberts.net or on Facebook.
