About This Book:
 
If the girl whose friends bullied you in high school turned up years later asking for your help, would you give it? Darrel Nelson explores that scenario in his second novel, The Return of Cassandra Todd. Addressing themes of bullying and spousal abuse, Nelson's latest work tells a story that could be from today's headlines.
Turner Caldwell works at a local motel as a handyman while attending college full-time. On his way to class one day, he is shocked to see Cassandra Todd and her young son in town. The sight of her brings back powerful memories of being bullied in high school-she was the popular head cheerleader and he the target of her friends' mean-spirited pranks.
 
My Thoughts on This Book:
 
Powerful storyline that kept me on the edge of my seat from cover to cover. The author has a way with words that allows you to draw yourself into the story which keeps you engaged page to page. You will not be disappointed reading this book. This is the second book I've read by this author and couldn't wait to read this one because I loved his first book. I'm putting him on my list of must read authors for the future! Bravo!
