Promises to keep...
Ali Caldwell is ready for her sophomore year of high school. After last year, she vows that this year is going to be uneventful, and most importantly, private.
Then she meets Samantha, a transfer student, who claims they have the same father and wants Ali's life. Ali, in an attempt to keep Samantha from ruining her dad's fledgling Senate campaign, allows herself to be blackmailed to keep the information secret.
Can Ali find out the truth and get her life back, while keeping her personal vow not to be on TV this year?
About the Author
So, she decided instead to be a famous actress.
In high school she became practical and thought she would study law. But when it came time to think about law school, she realized that what she really wanted to do was write fiction. All the time.
Since there are not a lot of job openings for novelists, she became an editor for a travel publication after graduating college. Although this sounds exotic, it really wasn’t. Most of the traveling involved driving up and down the NJ Turnpike.
Now she is living her dream: writing fiction, all the time. Except of course when driving her two teens to their various after school activities, and you know, making meals for them and other necessary things.
Always Ali is her fifth novel for teens. And although Christine would like to say she’s writing these books from some remote, peaceful location. She’s not. She lives in New Jersey, close to many highways and malls, with her husband and two teens (no pets, we’re allergic).
