Manifest Destiny is a fast-paced thrill ride that follows the harrowing journey of Destiny Morrison who was five-years-old the day her mother was arrested in a major drug-sting operation, and subsequently sentenced to ten years in prison. Having grown up without parental guidance and supervision, Destiny is now a 15-year old juvenile delinquent used to calling her own shots, and making her own rules. However, things change drastically for the teen when her estranged mother, Valerie, returns home from prison. The two clash immediately, sparking a bitter power struggle. Can mother and daughter heal the deep emotional wounds of the past and move forward towards a loving relationship?
Compelling and deeply touching, Francis's sparkling YA debut explores the world of an out-of-control teenager struggling to find herself and the path to forgiveness.

This story was very realistic, and is exactly the type of book I enjoy reading. I found myself caring for Destiny and rooting for her to start making smart decisions. Despite dealing with some heavy issues, this was a good,fast-paced read that was full of drama and funny moments. I am not really a fan of sequels, but I hope this one has a part two.
