Winner of Top Fiction Award from the In the Margins literary award, 2016.

“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, heartbreaking friendship and loyalty that will keep you reading until the very end.

Winner of the 2016 In the Margins Top Ten Best Books for Teens award.

Featured on Pivot TV's Secret Lives of Americans Wattpad reading list, Personal Transformations. 

If you asked Ruby, she'd tell you she's happy with her life.  She's tough and independent and doesn't depend on anyone else.  The road that has led her here has not been easy, and she's blocked a lot of it from her memory.
But things aren't as rosy as she would have everyone believe, and the road ahead of her is filled not only with gangs, drugs, and depression, but other challenges that Ruby hasn't even imagined.

—You know it’s a great book when you have to keep reminding yourself that the characters are not real people.  I really cared about Ruby, and she gave me some bad moments.  I desperately hoped her story would have a happy ending.
— "Ruby" exposes the complex and brutal relationship between mental illness, poverty and abuse … a page turner I had to finish
— “Ruby" really put me through the wringer and I actually had to put it down a few times because I needed to return to reality … There was no chance I was going to stop reading until I knew how the story ended! … I seriously can't wait for book two!
