THE LEADING EDGE OF NOW

By: Marci Lyn Curtis

Release Date: September 4, 2018

Publisher: KCP

ISBN: 9781771389990 

 
 
 
About the Book

Just when Grace is beginning to get used to being an orphan, her estranged uncle suddenly comes forward to claim her. That might be okay if he’d spoken to her even once since her father died. Or if moving in with Uncle Rusty didn’t mean returning to New Harbor. 

            Grace once spent the best summers of her life in New Harbor. Now the place just reminds her of all she’s lost: her best friend, her boyfriend, and any memory of the night that changed her forever. 

            People say the truth will set you free, but Grace isn’t sure about that. Because once she starts looking for it, the truth about that night is hard to find. And what happens when her healing hurts the people she cares about the most? 

            Marci Lyn Curtis, the critically acclaimed author of The One Thing (Disney-Hyperion, 2015), has crafted an honest and emotional story that will resonate with the wide range of readers impacted by sexual assault. 

            Sexual assault does not define this story, however, just as it does not define Grace. Wry humor and true love come along for the ride as Grace, like many in the #metoo era, seeks to find her truth, face her truth, and speak her truth. 

“Candid and emotional.” –Jenn Bennett, author of Alex, Approximately 

"Raw, gripping, and continually surprising.”—Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of Firsts and Last Girl Lied To

Oh, I absolutely love the cover and the summary! The colors are amazing, and I love that this novel is about something our society has been dealing with but is finally coming forward to for a long time. It sounds like a book that will have you crying one minute but smiling the next. I cannot wait to read this one!

Beautiful cover! This story sounds like it will be a real tearjerker! I can’t imagine losing everything I know and then having a practical stranger take me home with them. Sounds tragic.
