STOPPED COLD 
 
FOR TEENS, THE TEENS IN YOUR LIFE AND TEENS AT HEART

Things are not what they seem in peaceful Mistville, North Carolina.

Margaret McWhorter enjoys a laid-back Freshman year in high school flirting with Jimmy Wilmore, swimming and hanging out with friends--until that day. Her brother, Sean, suffers a stroke from taking a steroid. Now he's lying unconscious in a hospital. Margaret's angry at her dad for pushing Sean to be a great quarterback, but a fire of hatred burns inside her to make the criminals pay.

Looking for justice, she takes Jimmy and her best friend, Emily, through a twisted, drug-filled sub-culture. A clue sends them deep into the woods behind the school where they overhear drug dealers discuss Sean.

Time and time again they walk a treacherous path and come face to face with danger. Even the cop on the case can't stop them from investigating. All the while Margaret really wants to cure Sean, heal the hate inside, and open her heart to love.

Readers comments:

 
Very compelling with emotions and feelings that have been felt by everyone in their lives at one time or another. Everyone can relate to this book! Great read for all, especially students and parents!

One of the best books recently published dealing with self-esteem, drugs and the drive to be #1 at any cost. A must-read for the young athlete and the family.

Ms. Pallotta is an awesome writer. Stopped Cold is her best work yet.

Gail's stories are fresh and exciting.

Stopped Cold is an extremely good book to help teens make right decisions in their live. It is also a very good mystery.

I thought it was a great Book. I think all young people should read it. Opened my eyes.

This is an exceptional work and tells the truth of today.

Great story framed with a timeless, heartfelt message.


Excerpts from Reviews:

Stopped Cold is filled with emotion, strong characters, teenage romance, adventure, danger and the intricate workings of modern day high school studies and sports. Ms. Pallotta blends all this together for a convincing story. Larry Hammersley

This is a great read. I recommend it for teens or adults alike. It certainly kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next when Margaret, Jimmy, and their friend Emily go out looking to stop dangerous drug dealers. Connie C.

 

“…follow Margaret’s journey to discover the depth of true character and faith not only in school and friends, but family.” Author and Book Reviewer Lisa Lickel.

 

“They…” (the characters) “..are as finely tuned as a lovely stringed instrument, each having a different song to play in the story.” Book Reviewer Barbara Shelton
