Roshell, a girl from an Oregon trailer park, dances into a bright future despite life throwing a series of curveballs. This book is unmistakeably a product of the 90s - home of boy bands, individualism, teenage angst, Size Zero models, and Whatever!. For teenagers now, it's a springboard into a vivacious past of not so long ago.
Breathe in. Breathe out. This mantra gets Tessa Benson through the day.
The man she loves walks all over her, and she just wants to get by without her heart shattering to pieces. If she could find her voice, she’d scream.
Everything changes in one night, when she’s snatched from the streets and tied to a bed, a camera set up to capture her dying moment. And the person who paid to watch her die...is still out there somewhere.
Tessa prowls dark neighborhoods in a quest for justice, but she doesn’t find the killer. Not until they strike again…in the place Tessa is least expecting, and where it hurts worst.
The 90s - home of boy bands, individualism, teenage angst, ultra skinny models, and "Whatever!"...
In a decade when image matters, when the so-called Generation X is
swelling with 'future perfect' hopes and pride, 16-year-old Roshell
McRady dances her way through High School, never quite admitting that
she's ashamed of her trailer park family home. Meanwhile she listens to
Madonna while conjuring creative Top Ramen recipes to feed her younger
cousins; she empties enough hairspray until her bangs are feathered and
vertical like a lethal weapon; and she agonises over how to convince
Gabriel Harrison, the new Mystery Guy in town, to invite her to the prom
- a night which threatens to turn into a disaster.
But then life takes a dramatic turn for Roshell, and her life changes forever.
A love story emerges from the anguish of Roshell's life, and when she
leaves school and finds work at a casino, things don't get any less
complicated for her - until one night a powerful dream marks out the
exact path that she must take.Embracing You, Embracing Me is unmistakeably a product of the
90s, sassy and evocative without being nostalgic. For teenagers in 2011,
it's a springboard into a vivacious past of not so long ago.
