Shattered ~Book Tour and My Review~

Shattered by Melody Carlson
Cleo Neilson's best friend is moving away and she wants to make Lola's last night in town special. For Cleo, that means going to the big Christian concert in the city, but her mom won't allow her to go. She says that area of the city is too dangerous for two unchaperoned teenage girls.

Convinced her mom is just being an overprotective "helicopter" mom, she sneaks out of the house. After all, her mom has to let her grow up sometime, right?

Cleo now faces the chilling consequences of her actions. As Cleo fights through her grief and guilt, she learns about faith in God and forgiveness through him. Now she has a secret and can’t tell anyone, and it’s breaking her heart. As teenage girls read Cleo's journey, they too will learn the value of having faith and receiving forgiveness as well as just how dangerous it really is to keep a secret.

About the Author
Melody Carlson has written more than a hundred books for all age groups, but she particularly enjoys writing for teens. Perhaps this is because her own teen years remain so vivid in her memory. After claiming to be an atheist at the ripe old age of twelve, she later surrendered her heart to Jesus and has been following him ever since. Her hope and prayer for all her readers is that each one would be touched by God in a special way through her stories. For more information, please visit Melody's website at

Series Copy
Every teenage girl has a secret. And every teenage girl loves hearing someone else’s secret. But some secrets are big enough to detour, derail, or even destroy a young person’s life. Each of Melody Carlson’s Secrets novels will propel readers into a world where promises are broken, life is not fair, and challenges can make or break them, while ultimately helping readers discover that solid faith, loyal friends, and a persistent spirit will see them through.

My Thoughts
Wow! This is a Great Book!! I was going to take a peak and make sure this book was something I wanted my tween daughter to read. Well... As I started to read this book, I was very interested and I did not want to put it down. I read the whole book and although this is for teens even as an adult I enjoyed reading this book.

Shattered is a powerful story that will bring you to tears. I will admit that I cried alot reading this book. This book shows you how quickly your life can change. This is a good read while it also helps to teach readers about the consequences that their choices can have. It also has a message about hope and faith in God without being preachy. I would highly recommend this book.

*Disclosure: I received this book compliments of Glass Road Public Relation for the purpose of this review. This is my honest thoughts and opinion.*
