Mary Pretends is a riveting young adult novel from first-time author Todd Christopher that shines on unforgiving light on the issue of bullying and the modern day phenomenon of school-shooters.
Mary is a senior at Freeport High School, where she plays for the high school soccer team, has a crush on a shy boy named Jeff, and is very much your average teenage girl. Well, almost. The only thing standing in her way of living a normal, happy life is a girl named Angie, who happens to be the star of the soccer team and is hell-bent on making Mary's life as miserable as possible.
Angie's relentless bullying tortures Mary constantly, both mentally and physically, and is destroying any chance of her leading a normal life. Then one day Mary meets Kelly, the new student at Freeport, and her life is sent into a real tailspin. Caught in an emotional tug of war, Mary makes a series of decisions that ultimately lead her down a path toward self-destruction.
Will this sweet, normal kid who's been pushed to the edge actually have the conviction to pull the trigger? Find out, when you reach the dramatic conclusion of Mary Pretends.
