The Tyler family had the perfect life - until sixteen-year-old Leah decided she didn't want to be perfect anymore.
While her parents fight to save their daughter from destroying her brilliant future, Leah's younger sister, Justine, must cope with the damage her out-of-control sibling leaves in her wake.
What happens when love just isn't enough?
This mesmerizing debut novel tells the tale of a contemporary American family caught in the throes of adolescent rebellion - a heartbreaking, funny, ultimately redemptive quest for love, independence, connection and grace.

Readers often ask why I write family stories. Families fascinate me. While my stories differ--Nowhere to Run, my novel-in-progress, is a psychological thriller with a historical twist--they always tie back to the family, the ways we love, yet often hurt one another, the grief, the sorrow, the revelation, the joy. People connect with those stories, I think. So many readers have told me that In Leah's Wake feels real, the problems complex. They've been there - as a parent or a teen. They feel like they know these characters, and they care about them. This connection, for me, is the most important reason for writing. I hope you enjoy the novel and you feel that connection!
