Still Life with Tornado by A.S. King

Sixteen year old Sarah is blocking her childhood memory of a traumatic family event as well as being in denial about a shocking event last week at her school. Sarah drops out of school, wanders the streets all day long and begins a descent into mental illness and hallucinations. The truths of these two events are slowly revealed as Sarah learns more about her parents' marriage, her father's acts of domestic violence and the serious problems at school involving bullying and sexual predation by a teacher.

Multi-award winning author A.S. King has penned yet another heart wrenching surreal tale for young adult readers.
