Cherry Grove ~ only the illusion is perfect.
Lush lawns, rolling hills covered with horses, cafes and social clubs--Cherry Grove would be the perfect place to grow up if the illusion was real. But ugly secrets hide behind the pretty faces and sinister lies simmer beneath the perfection.
Cherry Grove 1: BEST FRIENDS NEVER
Lexi Welks wants two things: respect and a college acceptance letter that’ll get her out of too-good-to-be-true Cherry Grove. The problem is a nasty, life-ruining secret she shares with Monica Sanders is about to go public. If their ugly truth comes out her plans for college--not happening--and that’s only the beginning of her end.
Monica is the kind of student teachers adore. Well behaved, hard-working and always follows the rules. She’s the kind of friend other girls follow. Well-dressed, popular and always knows the right thing to do. If only they knew the truth about her. The truth that Lexi found out the hard way, after spending the past summer letting Monica talk her into doing things she knew could come back to ruin her.
Now, it’s the first week of school and one of the seniors is missing. Lexi knows a thing or two about the circumstances of his disappearance but she’s not talking. Neither is Monica. Those secrets need to stay buried. Because once the nasty truths start unravelling everyone is going to find out, nothing is what it seems.
Cherry Grove 2: Coming Winter 2017
Zoë Weinberg went to a lot of trouble reinventing herself—clothes, friends, personality—so when pieces of her fresh and fantastic identity start disappearing, she’s more than annoyed. When her position as one of the Athletic Boosters is threatened, she’s furious. But each time she fights back, bits of her new self slip further away, turning her back into the dull nobody she once was.
And the girl who’s snatching up pieces of the awesome new Zoë knows that in Cherry Grove, where perfection is everything, an imperfect girl doesn’t stand a chance.
