Synopsis:Despite the years of bullying in school, Jewel Hart has remained sweet and kind. She has it all—a great life, a great family, and beauty—but she has never been able to obtain the one thing she wants—to belong.
When Jewel meets Kaiden Carter, a good-looking, charming new student at York Mills High, things start to look up. On the surface, he is perfect, but Jewel can’t shake the feeling that everything is not as it seems.
When the devastation of the rising suicides in her school hits too close to home and drives Jewel into a deep despair, she clings to Kaiden’s strength to find her way back. Through the pain and fear surrounding her, she finds hope and the will to go on. But just as she picks herself up, tragedy strikes again, threatening to steal her last glimmer of hope. How will she go on? Can she ever find her place in the world?

Cascading Petals - Jane C Brady
This is an excellent story. Very well-written. I can so relate in so many instances in this book. I wish that every student could read this book and then discuss it with others. What a powerful reminder to us all about the hardships of growing up and attending school.
The characters are very well-developed. I enjoyed them all. I felt their emotions, the ups and downs. I shed a lot of tears.
The cover and the title are perfect for the story.
I would highly recommend this book to pre-teens, teens and even adults. It is a good reminder for everyone.
I give this book a literary rating of 5/5
