Crossroads: The Ella Thomas Story

When new girl Carly Matthews, arrives at Souhegan High School, Ella and her four best friends—Olivia, Rebecca, Sophia and Hailey, immediately feel threatened. Senior year is supposed to be carefree and easy. But when the rumors start, actions are set into motion. Actions that can’t easily be undone. The newspapers paint them as “real life mean girls,” but this is not who they are…or rather who they were.

A hierarchy of popularity, years in the making, is uncovered when Carly’s uninhibited behaviors thrust Ella and her friends into a storm of bullying that leads them down a path they never imagined. Until finally Ella finds herself at a Crossroads where she must decide between standing along side her friends to finish what they started, or come forward and take responsibility for what they’ve done. But just remember, whatever path you might choose for Ella…In real life, you can never go back!

★★★★★ Reviews for Crossroads!

“Loved it. extremely powerful read. I have never read a book that has affected me so emotionally as this story has. Highly recommend it. If you only read one book this week make it this one. You will not be sorry that you did.”

-Teresa Rhodes-Smith via Amazon Reviews.

 “I emotionally felt everything Delia was feeling. You are an excellent writer. Thank you for sharing. I will definitely recommend this book.”

-Teresa Rhodes-Smith to me, via Facebook.

“I absolutely loved this book! I couldn’t put it down. The character development was impressive for a relatively quick read and it was very realistic. It should be on the required reading list for highschool students as it clearly delivers a very powerful message. I can’t wait to read more of Megan McCooey’s work!” 

-Mia Scalfani via Amazon Reviews

“For my fellow bookworms…this is a fantastic read authored by a talented, long time friend of mine. I read it in one sitting…loved it! I was also super excited to find out not only did she thank me in the acknowledgements, she named the doctor in the book after me! Wayyy more recognition than I deserve for a fun medical ed conversation we had last summer, Megan McCooey and to my teacher friends (or anyone with teenagers)- this should with out a doubt be on the required reading list for highschool students. This incredibly well written story delivers a powerful message.”

-Mia Scalfani to me via Facebook.

Crossroads, Now Available!!!

The time has finally arrived!!  Crossroads has been released!!!

The release of my choose-your-own-ending short story has been a much anticipated one for me. I came up with the idea a couple of years ago, and placed in on the back burner while I focused on Winter Solstice and Angela. However, once they were both safely in the hands of my editor, I realized I needed a break from The Harvest Series, so what better time to work on something else…something new!!

Crossroads took me around a week to write. It was one of those stories that sort of wrote itself. I sat down and just let the creativity pour out of me. It was exhilarating in ways I cannot explain. At one point, I thought, there’s no way this could be good. But as I re-read the words I had written on those pages, in record time, I was elated Delia’s story had manifested in the way it did.

I’ve gotten a lot of really great feedback from readers, which made the anticipation even greater. And my hope…my plan for Crossroads is to promote it to a local organization dealing with this very issue. So fingers crossed!!!

Now that she’s done… finally released for all of you to read, I’d love your feedback! Please leave reviews here or on Amazon. I’d LOVE to hear which ending you picked and whether you went back to read the other one. What did you think of Delia’s fate in each? Also, what did you think of the dual ending? Is this something you think I should dabble in again?

 

If you haven’t already, grab yourself a copy of this quick read! It’s only $.99 on ebook or $5.99 in paperback. For those of you who like having paperbacks to hold, you get two for the price of one… when you buy the paperback, the ebook is free and comes with a lending option to share with a friend!!!
