First, Sliding on the Edge!
Synopsis: Shawna has spent the first sixteen years of her life in Las Vegas and learned to handle anything from a Las Vegas hustle to skipping out on the rent.
Scarred inside and out, she's survived with a tough, hardened attitude. When her mother abandons her with only a bus ticket and the name and number of stranger to call, this troubled, desperate teen finds herself on a California horse ranch with Kay Stone, the steely, youngish grandmother she's never known.
Kay overwhelms Shawna with rules and daily barn chores, and Shawna baffles Kay with her foul-mouthed anger and shrugging indifference to everything--except the maltreated horse on the ranch next door.
But it's worse than even Kay suspects: Shawna's driven to cut herself by Monster, that strange voice inside her head. Kay struggles to keep the ranch going and fears that unless she helps this girl, she could lose her last living family member.
As this unlikely pair struggles to co-exist, will they overcome their suffering and transcend the past?

Next, The Princess of Las Pulgas!
Synopsis: Carlie Edmund has everything: a loving family, good friends, a perfect home and wealth and status; then in her junior year of high school all of that changes.
How will Carlie take on the challenges of living in a different world, a world where she doesn't "fit" and where nothing is as it should be?
Follow Carlie and her family after they lose everything except each other, and then rebuild their lives.
