Cheryl writes with great compassion about girls facing emotional and physical abuse who are learning how to find their strength. They are stories of hope that don’t shy away from the cruelties that way too many girls face. They are stories of survival.
Today is the release date of the new cover art for STAINED, which is coming out October 1, 2013. I wanted to help get the word out about this novel and help promote Cheryl’s writing.
Without further ado, here’s the cover art of STAINED:
But when she’s abducted on the way home from school, Sarah is forced to uncover the courage she never knew she had. Can she look beyond her face to find the beauty and strength she has inside, somehow becoming a hero rather than a victim? It’s the only way Sarah will have any chance of escaping the prison—both seen and unseen—that this deranged killer has placed around her.
