In the vein of This is Where It Ends, this exploration of grief and tragedy in the aftermath of a bomb explosion at a high school is sadly topical and powerfully heartrending.
At 7:45 a.m. a bomb goes off at Edison High.
Nine people die instantly. Fifteen are critically wounded. Twenty-two are injured. One is blinded.
In the aftermath of the violent tragedy, survive struggle to cope and heal as a result of something they may never understand.
Told in alternating points of view, Red Heart Tattoo deals with issues of violence, death, and trauma in the lives of five teens.

Praise For Red Heart Tattoo

"In her signature style, McDaniel explores the grief, anger, and upheaval caused by a school bombing. . . . Readers will be drawn to the novel's brevity, romance, and ripped-from-the-headlines subject matter."--SLJ

"Teens dealing with devastating illness and injury . . . Likable characters . . . an eye-catching cover . . . should draw plenty of romance readers."

"As much a romance as it is the story of school violence, prejudice, and false accusations. . . . An appealing, easy read."--VOYA
