On the Rocks: The Path You Choose #2
My teen book, On the Rocks, asks the question, “What would you do if you were invited to a party where kids your age were drinking?” On the Rocks is the second book in the Path You Choose series.

When my husband was away with the Navy Reserves, my sister-in-law Jean and I decided to take our kids camping without the help of our husbands. Together we had eight kids between the ages of 1 and 12–four each. We would have so much fun! After all, how hard could it be?
