Overview

Violet could always read people by their colors, but that wasn't all that made her different from everyone else. Around her neck, she wears a violet charm her mother gave her to remind her how special she is. And to keep her safe. An ordinary eighth grader in every other way, Violet never thought that seeing her best friend's melon swirl or her dad's shades of blue was much of a gift. So, she usually kept the visions to herself. Until she realized that she had been misunderstanding the depth of the colors all along.

When Violet gets in the way of misplaced vengeance, she learns that the colors she sees can give her courage she never knew she had inside. But when truths are unveiled to Violet in the colors and notes her mother left behind, she and her friends must face challenges they hadn't expected.

Bringing together the reality of teenage life with the magic of a fantasy tale and the theme of a classic, Violet's Secret is a colorful first novel by Lori Rill.

Meet the Author

Writing has been a skill I have worked hard to improve for as long as I can remember. As much as I believe I was born to be a teacher, I have made myself a writer. I live with my husband and two sons, who are my most indulgent, devoted supporters. I graduated with a BA and a Masters of Art in Teaching degree from the University of Pittsburgh. I returned to the town where I grew up and have been teaching English in the same school district where I once attended. After having two children and essentially abandoning anything that was unrelated to motherhood, which was my ultimate decision—one that I don’t regret for one second, my husband urged me to start writing. I wanted to be able to go to T-ball games and watch my sons grow and learn in their classrooms and play outside with them in the yard after school. And, so, I began writing.
