Teenage love has never been so terrifying
Nothing could deter Cham's passion for carefully-crafted havoc at the posh Florence Preparatory Academy, until the day she receives something brand new: attention. Even better, attention in the form of last-minute transfer Poet Biletnikoff. He's okay to look at, having the recommended number of arms and eyes and such, and he speaks Cham's language of mig guns and Sawzalls, so he's alright. For a newb.
But just days into Poet's affections and Chamomile is swept away. An earth-moving first love blinds her to the quicksand at her feet, and to the smiling boy dragging her down. Obsession, manipulation, and jealousy masquerading as love begin to control Cham's life and threaten to send her into insanity.
Now battling her own demons as well as Poet's, Chamomile must find a way to save her mind and her life before Poet’s violent, controlling nature finally tears them apart—for good.
From the author:
CHAMOMILE is leagues different from anything in the REVIVE or PLANKS universe. This book is my baby, my pride and joy, and, in my opinion, the funniest, richest, most enjoyable, and most touching thing I've written to date. It's also the darkest and most offensive. So I hope you enjoy.
SOME LOSER NAMED CHAMOMILE deals with domestic abuse, severe mental illness, violence, bullying, and emotional manipulation. While none of these things are foreign to most teenagers, parents of younger kids should read it first and decide if this is the way they want their children exposed to these topics.
