Synopsis: Like pancakes and garlic—and 17-year-old Wendy’s family—some things aren’t meant to be blended. When her six-year-old stepbrother bursts into her room and destroys her English project, it doesn’t matter that he has severe autism. Her father and his wife blame Wendy. Her mother’s recent remarriage means that the one place she could escape to is now a shared bedroom with a hostile stepsister. Wendy gets a job after school to escape her families and earn money for college. She meets Sam and falls in love for the first time. Sam gives her the acceptance she needs and he becomes Wendy’s refuge—until she discovers he has been keeping a dangerous secret. When trouble strikes, Sam lashes out at Wendy, and his reckless fury causes a tragedy for which Wendy feels responsible. Is the family she rejected the only thing that can save her?

From the Author: Sweeter Than Life may look like a brand-new book, but it was a labor of many years. I wrote the first draft at 18 but felt that it wasn't the story I wanted to tell. Years later I picked it up and tried again, but even though the story had fleshed out considerably, it still wasn't quite there yet. In 2012 I picked it up once again when the character of Logan came to me. One of my scrawled index cards says, "NOW you have a story!"Wendy struggles with many of the challenges in her life because there is no one to help her navigate her world--and when she finds someone, he is overwhelmed with his own struggles. If young readers take away anything from this story, I hope it is the knowledge that you are always stronger than you think, and you are more than your worst moment--and that help can come from the last place you expect it.
