the conflicts their disparate pasts bring - Gybe by Kristi M. Turner

"The author's writing style is easy to follow and makes the story a fairly easy read, but there were times when I could certainly tell that this was a debut novel. Every writer has one, of course, and that's their starting point. They build from there and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. This is a solid start and a good story. I think there are great things in this author's future!" - Bobbie, Goodreads

Description:

Nicole is an 18-year-old, juvenile delinquent who desperately wants to take control of her life but must find a way to overcome her own self-sabotage and a judge who won’t easily let her escape her past. She keeps food on her plate and clothes on her back by stealing. It is far from the life she wants, but she has known little kindness in her life and, therefore, gives little back.

When Judge Newton charges her for the first time as an adult, Nicole recognizes a separating path: She can stay on her path to destruction or she can accept the unexpected generosity of the Kutcher family, whose house she is charged with burglarizing. 

Child psychologist, Cynthia Kutcher, believes she can help Nicole confront her anger and build back the self-worth she lost when her father abandoned her to a drunken uncle after her mother’s death.

Along the way to building a more valuable life, Nicole meets Keagan, an affluent young man with whom she begins an often overwhelming love affair despite the conflicts their disparate pasts bring.
