Theme: Hi-lo, Young Adult, teen, realistic fiction, suicide, depression, homosexuality. Gabby Herrera is not like her perfect sister, Celia--straight-A student, obedient, responsible. Her parents don't get it. They don't get her C-average report card. Her love for basketball. "The three of them think anything is possible if you just try hard enough. Well, I've tried. It's not possible." She can't be who she is unless she is just like them. And if she's not like them, she's not a real person. She's a broken person. A broken Herrera. And that is unacceptable. Hard-hitting, contemporary young adult fiction is not trendy–it's not dystopia. There are no vampires, no werewolves, no castles. It's real life. It's unflinching. Gravel Road highlights the talent of YA authors committed to creating realistic fiction with emotional authenticity. No topic is off-limits: suicide, homosexuality, drugs, rape, gangs, bullying. Teens live with this reality each day. And they find a way to survive. Each paperback book is 116 to 268 pages.

From the Inside Flap:

Gabby Herrera is not like her perfect sister, Celia--straight-A student, obedient, responsible. Her parents don't get it. They don't get er C-average report card. Her love for basketball. "The three of them think anything is possible if you just try hard enough. Well, I've tried. It's not possible." She can't be who she is unless she is just like them. And if she's not like them, she's not a real person. She's a broken person. A broken Herrera. And that is unacceptable.

From Booklist:

Gabby is a solid C student and star basketball player, but that’s just not enough for her family members, who are proud of their achievements and expect similar success from her. When she is grounded from basketball, her boyfriend, and her phone, and forced to get a job, Gabby’s only sounding board becomes her young uncle Mike, who also feels like an outsider in the family—he’s gay and Gabby is the only one who knows it. As Gabby sneaks out to get involved in the social life and dangerous habits of her older coworkers, she also becomes increasingly angry, defiant, and alienated from her friends. Her drinking, hookups, and pill popping spiral out of control after a family tragedy, leaving Gabby more alone than ever. The compelling first-person narrative focuses on moving the plot first and foremost, though Gabby’s quick recovery after hitting rock bottom somewhat belies the difficulty of such an endeavor. Still, the brief chapters and brisk pacing of this entry in the Gravel Road series should have significant appeal to struggling readers. Grades 7-10. --Booth, Heather
