THE F WORD

Michelle MacQueen and Ann Maree Craven

Release date: June 13, 2019

Publisher: Midnight Hour Studio

About the Book

One party. One accident

Six lives changed forever

Peyton Callahan refuses to let the F word define her

She has always remained body positive, never letting others’ perceptions color her view of herself. But after the accident that claimed her brother’s life, Peyton’s weight spirals out of control and she succumbs to the label her peers forced on her years ago.

The fat girl.

In the aftermath of tragedy, Peyton’s world falls apart and worst of all, her best friend and almost-boyfriend, Cameron, leaves her behind, too damaged and heartbroken to ever see her the way he once had.

Cameron Tucker—the jock and all around track god—believes he lost everything the night a car accident sent him and his friends plunging over Defiance Falls.

His friend Cooper: Dead.

Cameron’s Olympic dream: Gone.

And Peyton: Will never look at him the same way again.   

So, he does what he once did best, he runs, escaping Twin Rivers and everyone in it, never expecting to return, never imagining he’d have to face the girl he still loved but left behind.

Eighteen months later, he is no longer the boy any of them remember. Except Peyton. No matter how hard he tries to hide, she still sees him, still believes in him.

What will she say when she discovers just how broken he is?

About the Authors

Michelle MacQueen

Michelle MacQueen is a USA Today Bestselling author of fantasy and romance. She began writing when a chronic illness kept her from doing anything else. She firmly believes it was fate because any other life now seems unimaginable. The illness isn't going away, but neither is the love of writing it gave her. Now residing in Columbus, OH, Michelle spends every moment being the kind of aunt parents are warned about, spoiling her niece and nephew. Once they're sugared up and sent home, she enjoys reading and watching ice hockey.

 
Ann Maree Craven

Ann Maree Craven is an Amazon bestselling author of Young Adult Contemporary Fiction and Fantasy. Her books focus on strong YA characters with crossover appeal to other genres and audiences of all ages. She believes in stories that make you think and she loves playing with foreshadowing, leaving clues and hints for the careful reader. 
She draws inspiration from her background in architecture and interior design to help her with the small details in world building and scene settings. (Her degree in fine art also comes in handy.) She still works (extremely) part time for a design firm in Atlanta Georgia. (Mostly just to make sure she actually leaves the house from time to time.)

Ann Maree enjoys editing almost as much as she enjoys writing, which makes her an absolute weirdo among her peers. Her favorite pastime is sitting on her porch when the weather is nice with her two dogs, Fynlee and Nahla, reading from her massive TBR pile.

I love this cover and the cute play on words! I am looking forward to read this book to find out more about the accident and the way it changes the lives of these friends. I'm also curious about Peyton and her personal struggle. I am an overweight female who also lost my brother so this book is very interesting to me for a number of reasons. I think it sounds like an incredible read.
