Sara Alva | 3 comments Hi all :)

I so hate self-promoting, but alas, it's part of the author's job nowadays. In case anyone was interested, I have a new YA release out: Silent Silent by Sara Alva

Here's the blurb:

Alex’s life as a teenager in South Central LA is far from perfect, but it’s his life, and he knows how to live it. He knows what role to play and what things to keep to himself. He’s got it all under control, until one lousy pair of shoes kicks him out of his world and lands him in a foster care group home.

Surrounded by strangers and trapped in a life where he could never belong, Alex turns to the only person lower on the social ladder than he is: a “special” mute boy. In Sebastian, Alex finds a safe place to store his secrets—those that sent him to foster care, and the deeper one that sets him apart from the other teenagers he knows. But Sebastian has secrets of his own, and when tragedy rips the two boys apart, Alex will stop at nothing to find the answers—even if it means dragging them both through a past full of wounds best left buried.

It might just be worth it, for the slim chance at love.

Available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00G8UF0JM

*Please note that this title contains strong language, sexual situations, and abuse themes. Mature YA.

I'm currently running a paperback giveaway on my blog: www.SaraAlva.com
