About:

“Millington Valley is a quintessential small Pennsylvania town: families go back generations. Football rules. Kids drink while adults look the other way. High school is a whirlwind of aspiration and rivalry, friendship and jealousy.

When smart and pretty Molly Hanover moves to town and attracts the attention of the football team’s hero, Wade Thornton—a nice guy with a bad drinking habit—longtime friendships are threatened and a popular cheerleader tries to turn the school against Molly.

The young couple’s future is shattered when Wade, drunk, wrecks his truck and Molly is thrown through the windshield. She wakes from a coma to find her beauty marred and her memory full of holes. As she struggles to heal, she becomes sure that something terrible happened before the accident. And there is somebody in the valley who doesn’t want her to remember.”  Continue reading “Review: What the Valley Knows by Heather Christie”

I have no clue if they will end up changing once I get to the actual writing of this book and truly discover who these characters are. Honestly, I am okay with that as long as I feel that by the end that I have found the best name for them I will be happy. I am so excited to actually get started on the book and see where these characters take me. Continue reading “Writing Update #3: Naming Characters and Occupation”
