When Tomorrow Starts Without Me by Stacy Claflin

He’s on the road to fame. She’s at the end of the line. A chance meeting will change everything.

Kenna Mitchell grew up despised and mistreated by those who should’ve loved and protected her. Now homeless and alone, with pain too heavy to bear, she’s ready to end it all.

Enter Rogan Scott, an up-and-coming rock star with one focus—his band. Out in the woods, looking for song inspiration, he comes across a beautiful girl seconds from ending her life.

Rogan saves Kenna, only to face her anger. Intrigued by her reactions and motivations, he devotes himself to getting to know the real Kenna Mitchell. Turns out, she doesn’t even know herself. Soon their tenuous friendship blossoms into love, and Rogan pulls her into his world of rock and roll. But his social circle proves as cruel as the one she left behind.

As everything spirals out of control, Kenna discovers a shocking secret about her past. With each new lie uncovered, she’s gutted worse than before. She rallies every time—until she learns a painful detail she’s certain she’ll never recover from.

Can Rogan show Kenna that life is worth living, or will the merciless truths of her life convince her to finally end it all?

“Incredible, emotion-wringing romance of young love that's got it all; I was so hooked! This superbly written and well-paced novel is no sweet adolescent romance; it's gritty and packed with issues that impact teens today but should have broad appeal to adults of all ages as well. I am normally partial to more upbeat stories, but the author quickly caught me up in Kenna's despair and made me a believer in working through ugly truths with even a slender thread of hope for a better ending.” -Amazon reviewer
