Defying the Diva

Defying the Diva
By D. Anne Love

Haley Patterson has always been normal. She had a normal family, normal friends, and a normal life.

But her life is completely flipped upside-down when the school diva decides to exact a lot of revenge for a little story Haley wrote in the school newspaper.

Over the course of just a few days, she goes from respected freshman with a good reputation to school pariah. Students gossip about her. Her "friends" won't go near her for fear of becoming gossip victims themselves. Anonymous notes show up on her desk and in her locker. Email appears telling her to kill herself.

There seems to be no end to the torture. It gets so bad Haley even has a moment when she considers suicide as a way to end the pain.

She makes it to the end of the semester and is sent by her parents to stay with her aunt, who then gets her a job at the town’s country club.

There, Haley has to re-learn how to make friends, how to trust others, and how to find herself.

She then finds out that the diva has struck again, only this time, someone got hurt and landed in the hospital. Can Haley stand up to the diva and stand up for what is right? Or will she let history repeat itself?
