I’ve had the pleasure of reading the first two books, Mystical High and Desert StarBoth were excellent and I highly recommend them.

I’m almost sad to see the series end, but given Lisette’s talent for writing in multiple genres, I know she will find success in whatever she writes.

Please help me in congratulating Lisette on DRAWN APART, and be sure to pick up your copy!

Book Summary ~ Drawn Apart

When Avalon Martelli and Stephanie Lambert meet at the start of their junior year at Mystekal High, they form an instant connection. Stephanie is from South Jersey and Avalon from North Jersey, and they both feel out of place in the Southern California desert.

Aside from having a home state in common, they each possess a talent for art and the heartbreak of a broken family. Avalon has the gift of sight, where the future is sometimes revealed in her paintings, while Stephanie’s drawings are all about forever love. As Stephanie, a self-described poetry geek and hopeless romantic, talks about past lives and eternal happiness, Avalon denies she’s in love with her best guy friend, River Dalworth, who is attending art school in Los Angeles.

Only weeks before graduation, Stephanie is in a car accident and falls into a coma. Devastated, Avalon believes it is all her fault. The night before, she had painted Stephanie with her head against the steering wheel—and hadn’t told her. She confides this to River, who has come home to be with her, but he can’t convince her she’s not to blame. Avalon loudly proclaims to the universe that she no longer wants her gift, but River warns her she may receive another one in its place.

Avalon and her family, along with Stephanie’s mother, pray for a miracle. River tries to console her, but she finds his presence difficult, knowing he has someone else who “just might be the one.” Trying to push her own pain and disappointment aside, Avalon keeps vigil for her best friend, hoping that Stephanie will wake up and have her greatest wish fulfilled— the meeting of her soul mate.

    Eden, what a WONDERFUL surprise to find this blog! Thank you so very much!

    And may I say that you are also one of the loveliest people who I know and I am such a great fan of your writing.

    Thank you for spotlighting DRAWN APART on your blog. Indeed I am a multi-genre author. It was great fun writing this YA paranormal series, but soon I’ll be back to writing literary fiction again. My WIP has been patiently waiting while I finished The Desert Series.

    Thank you gain for this fabulous shout-out! You’re the BEST!

    xo,

    • My pleasure Lisette! You know I loved the first two books in the series and I’m not a huge YA reader. You have a way of bringing the issues of youth into an adult world, and making me remember how difficult and fun it was to be young!

      I look forward to your new offerings in literary fiction, as you know… I’m a fangirl of your writing. ❤

    What a pleasure to read, Eden, your spotlight of Lisette’s third book in her series! I agree with you too, Lisette does have a way of writing a YA story that is enticing to adults.
    I’m over halfway through DRAWN APART, Lisette, and am deeply engaged with the story, and feel as if I’m living the scenes along with the characters. The themes are ones that are special to me on a personal level. Thank you for the series, but especially, this third one.
