Have your wings ever been broken?

THE CHOICE delivers a raw, profound, and inspiring tale of pain and triumph… but equally important, it sweeps you away in a love story. No one can heal your wounds for you. You only have one life. Choose to live it.


How do you heal from your past when you're still trapped within it?

I lost myself the night of the party. Just like that, my innocence and my sanity were torn away. 

I would like to say that time heals all wounds, but it doesn't. And I would like to say that falling in love is what rescued me, but it wasn't. Nobody told me what to expect in the coming days and weeks and months after conceiving a rapist's child. Years later, my wounds are still just as fresh as the night they were made. It would be so easy to disappear and allow the memories to consume me.

But that's the choice, isn't it? To live instead.

“THE CHOICE is a gut-wrenching story of a teenage girl who finds herself in a dark place that no young woman should ever know, and is faced with a personal, morally aggravating decision in the wake of it. At the same time, this is also a love story, and Kennedy delivers a soft, yet unmistakable message of redemption for those who have been hurt by life and don't know whether they can trust anyone again. There are no easy answers or heavy-handed morals here. Kennedy’s book is gutsy, brutally honest, and breathtakingly real. A must-read for young adults.” Sarahbeth Caplin, author of A STUNNING ACCUSATION and WHERE THERE’S SMOKE

“It touched my heart and will be read over and over again.” - T. London, Amazon Review

“Kennedy's writing walks you side by side with May, and makes you wish you could actually be there for her in real life.” mamelotti, Amazon Review
