Author Fleur Gaskin is pleased to announce the release of her young adult novel, Arabelle’s Shadows.
Arabelle’s life is coming together. She’s confident, she has great friends, and she’s dating Naak! But Bangkok has too many models. Arabelle’s broke and Naak isn’t as wonderful as he first appears. Slowly the Shadows creep back into Arabelle’s mind, bringing with them thoughts of hopelessness and despair. The vile Shadows know something Arabelle’s refusing to remember. If she’s not careful, they’ll use it to destroy her.
Based on a true story, Arabelle’s Shadows takes us on a journey through the struggles of growing up, not quite making it as an international model, and attempting to overcome a crushing depression.
