Promise Not To Tell by Jane Futcher

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

Jane Futcher was raised in Baltimore, MD. She began her professional writing life as a scriptwriter and producer of live, high school multimedia auditorium shows for Rick Trow Productions in Philadelphia. Later, as a project editor for Harper & Row Media in New York, she wrote and produced educational programs for the science and society curriculum. In 1977, after moving to San Francisco, she wrote her first novel, Crush, published in 1981 by Little, Brown. That same year, Holt, Rhinehart and Winston released Marin: The Place, The People.

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.
