This book tackles cyberbullying, which is scary to kids and parents. It offers tips on having a discussion with your kids on how to prevent cyberbullying once and for all.
Have you ever tried to be the perfect mother? Isabel, a DC lawyer, does everything she can to keep Phoebe from harm, but fails when the mysterious Shane appears on Facebook and flirts with her teenage daughter.
A story about the timeless struggle between mothers and their teen daughters with a razor-sharp 21st century twist. This heart-wrenching, harrowing debut novel for fans of Big Little Lies (Liane Moriarty) and Reconstructing Amelia (Kimberly McCreight) will make you question what’s needed to keep your children from harm.
Phoebe’s mother, Isabel, is precariously balancing her career and her family.
Hard-working and caring, worried but supportive, all Isabel wants, in a world of bullies and temptations, is to keep her daughter Phoebe safe. With her busy schedule, though, she fails to recognize another mother’s mounting fury and the danger Phoebe faces by flirting with a mysterious boy on Facebook.
A cyberbullying episode aimed at Phoebe pushes her to the edge with horrific consequences. In her search for justice, Isabel, a DC lawyer, sets out to find the culprit behind this cruel incident.
Saving Phoebe Murrow, set amidst the complicated web of adolescent relationships, tells a story of miscommunication and malice, drugs and Facebook, prejudice and revenge.
Inspired by the tragic story of Megan Meier – a Missouri teenager who, just a few weeks shy of her 14th birthday, took her life following an extraordinarily troubling cyber-bullying incident instigated by a friend’s mother – Saving Phoebe Murrow is sparking the conversation about bullying‘s awful consequences in households, classrooms, and book clubs across the country.
A must-read for fans of books like Reconstructing Amelia and Big Little Lies, part of the proceeds from sales of Saving Phoebe Murrow are being donated to The Megan Meier Foundation (which recently hosted a book launch party alongside Feely in St. Louis, MO).
Bullying and cyber-bullying — especially of children and teens — are pervasive problems that parents, educators, and community leaders everywhere are struggling to deal with on a daily basis.
