Olivia, On the Brink - Olivia Series Book One
Romantic, faith-inspiring, coming-of-age story of high school senior Olivia Miller in a small town in Texas in the early 1990s. While trying to figure out what she's going to do after graduation, she meets Cameron McClain, the hot new guy at school. He and Olivia's mentor, Mrs. K, help her navigate the troubled waters of her home-life, including a rage-aholic father and neglectful mother. More
Don't let them steal your joy ...
Olivia Miller is pretty sure she’d win the high school senior award “Most Likely to Never Figure Out What They Want To Do With Their Life”. Her critical father and neglectful mother have contributed to her anxiety and lack of direction about her future. She’s a model student with a big heart for community service, but her dad has belittled any ambition she ever had in pursuing something she’s interested in. College is a definite, but where should she go, and what should she major in?
But there’s a new guy at school, Cameron McClain, who becomes a fabulous distraction. He is positively swoon-worthy, and not just because he’s a gorgeous romantic who plays the guitar. He’s also thoughtful and respectful, providing some much-needed acceptance and encouragement for Olivia. He fits right in with Olivia’s circle of friends: future fashion designer Lyla, photographer Kate, and all-around popular Josh.
This story is about Olivia’s journey in learning to think for herself, set personal boundaries, and overcome limitations imposed by her overbearing parents, all while trying to set a good example for her younger sister, Emma, who is watching and learning from her. Thankfully, Olivia’s boss and mentor, Mrs. K, is looking out for her, offering guidance in life and Christian faith.
Will she ever be able to get her dad’s judgmental comments out of her head? Most of all, she can’t wait to get away from home!
