In Leah’s Wake

By Terri Giuliano Long

The Tylers have the perfect life – until sixteen-year-old Leah decides she doesn’t want to be perfect anymore.

As Leah’s rebellion escalates, her parents, Zoe and Will, wage a desperate battle to save their daughter from destroying her promising future. Meanwhile, Leah’s younger sister, Justine, must bear the burden of coping with the destruction her out-of-control sibling leaves in her wake.

The Tylers, once town royalty, soon find themselves isolated, the subject of vicious gossip and speculation. Jerry Johnson, the cop who intervenes, may be the only person in town who instinctively understands Dostoevksy’s conviction, that “everyone is responsible to all men and for all men and for everything.”

This mesmerizing debut novel tells the tale of a contemporary American family caught in the throes of adolescent rebellion – a heartbreaking, funny, ultimately redemptive quest for love, independence, connection and grace.
