9781508881483: Fault Lines

When her revenge plan goes awry, fourteen-year-old Dani Burkhart finds herself in unexpected places: the back seat of a cop car, the police station holding room, Juvenile Court. She wants her old life, the one with a family that’s not falling apart. She wants to stay in her home with the woods in back, and keep her carefree dog with the windshield wiper tail, and hear her big brother laugh and shout “Sweet, D-Dawg!” when her curveball dips like a sparrow. Dani has always believed her grandmother’s philosophy: Right will win. But if everything is going wrong, why not punish the neighbor who’s to blame, who pulled the string that unraveled everything? Makes sense – unless there’s more to the story than Dani wants to admit.

About the Author:

Brenda Ortega grew up in Michigan, the fifth of six children, sandwiched in between two older brothers and one younger one. She was a classic tomboy who loved to play baseball, hockey, and basketball, go fishing, and climb trees. But she harbored a secret: She liked girly things too. At the age of six, she convinced her mom to buy her a pair of white, zip-up go-go boots, which never saw the light of day. She only wore them in her bedroom, where she was free to model-walk down the runway, strike a pose, dance. Now she celebrates her inner quirks and writes novels that explore the contradictions, the struggles, and the triumphs of being human. Her debut young adult novel, The Twelfth of Never, was named a 2014 B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree. Midwest Book Review called it “a riveting good read from beginning to end... Very highly recommended.”

Review:

"Fault Lines is an original and deftly crafted entertainment that is very highly recommended for school and community library YA fiction collections."  --- Midwest Book Review

"Fault Lines by Brenda Ortega was a great novel. Dani, the protaganist, is likeable, realistic, and easy to relate to. The plot moves along at a nice pace. It is a simple story, yet it conveys powerful themes... of divorce, family issues, and friendship."  -- five-star review on LitPick, the teen book review site

"Dani's angry reactions to the changes in her family and social life are fully believable. Ortega (The Twelfth of Never) resists the pressure to tie up everything with a bow, and she avoids turning Dani's choices into a lesson for readers. Kids going through similar situations will find Dani a relatable and non-judgmental voice."  -- Publishers Weekly
