The Painted Secrets of Carmelita Hawthorn

A WELL KNOWN FACT: Carmelita Hawthorn is hardly popular. A LESSER KNOWN FACT: She's also the one painting people's secrets on the walls of Lower Danford Grammar School. A BLATANT LIE: Reuben Dovey isn't trying to get her expelled. [Thank you to @Anna MV. for the amazing cover!]

Harlequin Smiles and Bulletproof Hearts

Quinn was one of the popular people. You know the type- face plastered in paint, lungs burnt black from cigarettes, new boyfriend every month. Asher dyed his hair a different colour every month.

"For your information, you are five feet and two inches of muscle and bone with an AA bra size and shoes from the children’s section.

Harsh World

Jessica was a girl, a child, just like you or me. She was just like any normal child, living her life but I guess sometimes life isn't always good. As a young child she had been innocent, didn't really understand the world, thought everything was peaceful, easy and everyone was nice. As that innocence faded away she realised the world isn't really as innocent as it seems, it is actually a harsh world out there. *Based on some true events.* [Cover made by h a n n a h.]

You Can Never Be Lost

2.47pm is the moment of impact. The red metal of Neil’s Vauxhall Corsa turns in on itself, curling up into a mangled claw as it crashes against Ijeoma’s Ford Fiesta, tearing it to tiny grey pieces and sending shards of glass into the sky like raindrops. (Rated Y for language, alcohol use, some references to sex)
