A Year of Auditions.
Her debut novel, CRACKED, will be published by Simon Pulse in Spring 2012. Here's more from Goodreads. This one sounds amazing!
K.M. Walton's Young Adult debut CRACKED, about two boys, a bully and his victim, whose very different circumstances at home have led them to become roommates in the same psych ward.
Victor knows he’s weak. He’s got the most self-absorbed parents alive. His life sucks.
Bull knows he’s angry. He’s sick of taking the drunken beatings from his grandfather. His life sucks too. And he likes to take out his anger on Victor.
Buried underneath their weakness and bravado are two sixteen-year-old boys. If they don’t realize how broken the other is and how similar their pain is, they may not survive.
