Avalon Monday doesn't mind telling schoolmates that her mother ran off to California to live with a guy she met on the internet. After all, that's way less embarrassing than the truth, which is that her mom is in prison for trying to stab Avalon's fourth grade teacher.

Even though it's been three years since she was able to make a fresh start, Avalon discovers there are things you can never truly leave behind. First, her mom reaches out to her, forcing her to face choices she never wanted to make. Then, the past collides with the present, exposing her secret and threatening to leave her new life in ruins.

Pamela MacDonald (CA)
Pamela MacDonald authored the voice of Avalon in this story. A Licensed Psychologist, Finding Avalon is Pamela's first novel. She lives in Miramichi, New Brunswick with her husband Albert and their two sons, Matthew and Andrew.
