Penny Interesting. 'Like Nobody's Watching' by L.J. Ritchie was written by a New Zealand author and was shortlisted for a 2017-year award in New Zealand. Just because the copyright was set at 2016 doesn't make it a 2016 release. Never mind, I'll remove this list from those that I was watching. L.J. Ritchie is a fantastic debut author, and a fellow author and I was there when the first draft was written back in 2013...
