Fifteen-year-old Simon felt as if he couldn’t do anything right. He’d been kicked out of prep school and was in constant battle with his parents. Shipping him off to Maine to live with his older cousin was his mother’s idea of a way to turn his life around. Simon didn’t agree. But that was before he met Laura.
She was beautiful. The most beautiful girl Simon had ever seen. And she needed him. Laura was living with a dark secret she couldn’t tell anyone, except Simon. Simon had to help her. It was one thing he knew was right, even if keeping her secret made everything go terribly wrong.
"Some secrets are too dangerous to tell--and too dangerous to keep." From the Young Adult Library Services Association, which selected Promise Not to Tell as a 1992 Quick Pick for Reluctant YA Readers. Quick Picks are selected because they "have emotional impact and are gripping and memorable."

About the Author
In 1991, Avon Books published her young adult novel, Promise Not to Tell. After teaching English for several years, she joined the staff of the Marin Independent Journal, where she was an editorial writer and reporter for nearly a decade. In 1999, she and her partner, Erin Carney, bought 160 acres in the mountains of inland Mendocino County, moving there with their dogs in 2004. Women Gone Wild is about that experience.
