Nikki Vataro knew from a very young age that she was
di erent from the other kids. She was smarter than the
others were. Sometimes even smarter than her teachers.
She always stood up for the underdog. She excelled
at everything she tried, especially basketball. Most of all
she had a family that loved and encouraged her. That is
what was important. That is all she needed or wanted.
Then in a blink of an eye, her family was gone. Left
alone at only eleven years old she was lost. With no one
to help her control all her gifts she made some bad deci -
sions. Decisions that landed her in juvenile detention for
three and a half years.
Now at seventeen, she is free to start a new life. She
must now gure out how to deal with the pressure of
being a teenager with a past, on her own, and in a new
town. Unknown to her as she walks out of the gate, she
will not be heading out alone. Four of her father’s fraternity
brothers will be there to help her along the way.
The rst person Nikki meets turns out to be the one
that helps her the most. Kenny is the boss’s son. Good
looking, smart, and athletic, he has everything going for
him. Together they ght to make it through an intense
senior year of high school.
Can she overcome her past mistakes? Can she learn
how to trust again? Can she learn to be part of a family
again? Can she learn to love again?

Editorial Reviews

Fan comment - Marryann Cottone
As Juliann Vatalaro"s debut novel "The Pact" is truly enjoyable.
Left as an orphan at eleven you see the path Nikki's life takes.
At 17, Nikki has many decisions to make for her life ahead.
She is not only athletically talented, but also smart and witty
which you see as the story unfolds.

"The Pact" has hidden "circunstances" that is a page turner
that keeps the readers interest.

Looking foward to a sequel from Juliann Vatalaro.

Meet the Author

I was born in Brooklyn, New York and grew up on Long Island. Growing up reading was never one of my favorite things to do. I would rather have been on a basketball court or softball field. The first book I ever read cover to cover was “The Outsiders”. It was given to me by my senior year English teacher after she realized I never read any of the other books she assigned. That book change my whole outlook on the joys of reading.

My first book “the Pact” was in my head for over twenty years. It would creep forward every now and then and then go hide itself again. I finally found the time to get it down on paper.

Currently I live in Richmond, Virginia and work as a design engineer. When I’m not reading or writing I enjoy a good poker game and watching the NY Yankees.

    Amazing novel! It's the story of Nikki Vataro who has many gifts

    Amazing novel! It's the story of Nikki Vataro who has many gifts, despite all these talents she has had a rough life. At the young age of 11 she became an orphan and was forced to survive on the streets in New York City. The book takes place 6 years later when she is 17 and entering a new town. She faces many new obstacles that will be even more difficult then the ones in her past. There is romance, drama, comedy, action and friendship all included. This book is an absolute page turner, it will keep you on your feet and wanting more. You become intrigued within the first few pages, it will hold your attention the whole way through! This is also an excellent book for many ages as well; just because she is a 17 year old girl does not mean you have to be 17 to read it. I would absolutely recommend anyone to read this book, you will not regret it. I was honestly amazed at how the book touched my heart. You feel like you know each character personally. The book consumes you in a great way.
