Tattooed Teardrops Nominated for “In the Margins” Best Books for Teens Award

It’s all there in the title. In February, Ruby, Between the Cracks won the Top Ten Best Books for Teens In the Margins award, and now Tattooed Teardrops has been nominated as well! Can I saw how much I love the folks over there at Library Services for Youth in Custody? Between you and me, they may have asked for review copies of another book as well…

Is Tattooed Teardrops as good as Ruby, Between the Cracks? In my opinion, it’s even better. And over at Wattpad, Ruby has been garnering comments such as:

“One of the best books I’ve ever read.”

“I wish I could forget the book Ruby and read it all over again. It was so good and made me cry.”

“It kept me awake whole night because I wanted to know the end. This is one of those books where you feel the emotions of the characters, think about them when not reading and want to complete the book in one go. Truly captivating!”

“Best book I have ever read!! I didn’t even wanna sleep at night, because I wanted to just keep reading!!”

“This was amazing honestly. It was so twisted and intriguing and it felt like it was real and was never going to end. It kept me guessing the whole way through.”

So get a head start on the next “best book” and read Tattooed Teardrops!

“I don’t plan on getting in any trouble.”

Tamara had thought that when she got out of juvie, things would be easier. But before long, it seems like her life is spiraling into chaos.

If she can’t prove to her probation officer that she is innocent of the allegations against her, she’s going back to prison, and Tamara just can’t let that happen.

—For me, a sign of a good book is that it is a quick read, holds my interest front to back and I like the characters. This book met the mark on all three of those characteristics.

—A slimy villain, an eager-to-please side-kick and a heroine who simply wants to move on from her past make for an intriguing tale, indeed! A realistic and beautiful story filled with suspense, heart-breaking friendship and loyalty that will keep you reading until the very end.

Tell me what you think!
