I wrote Damaged years ago when I was trying to find an agent. I'd had the story in my head for some time and it was one of those ideas that wouldn't leave me alone. Maddi Brooks, in my opinion, is one of the strongest characters I've ever written. I love the quote above and it truly encapsulates what Maddi needs to realize about herself; what Noah and his sister Natalie help her realize. She's stronger than she believes and despite everything, has an incredible capacity for love. This story mattered to me years ago and it still does today. I'm so happy with the new cover and grateful for the chance to share it all over again.
