                          TALK TO ME

Crowded halls filled with noisy teenagers.
Teachers, homework, and never ending tests.
Hanging with friends, dating boys, gossip, and preparing for the future.
Isn’t that what high school is supposed to be all about?

Carly Boyles was once popular and dated the Captain of the football team. She wanted to be like any other fifteen-year-old teenage girl at Lakeport Central High School, but Taylor Ryans changed everything.
Two weeks after their break-up, Carly can’t find a reason to live after she finds her best friend Staci Garrison; hanging all over her ex-boyfriend Taylor Ryans, Carly decides to take matters into her own hands.
The rules no longer apply between two best friends when a boy comes between their once forever-friendship since middle school. One phone call changes everything and Carly’s world is shattered to pieces.
Will she find a reason to live? Will she tell the one secret that is killing her from the inside out?

Talk To Me is a gripping tale of one girl’s life that will never be the

same again…
