Locked Inside Re-Issue

Celeste’s 2011 eBook release for teenage girls, Locked Inside, is now available in Nook Books.

“This is an accessible, good book that touches on so many issues that girls in their early teens face every day at school, with friends and family. The perfect book to read on a day when things don't look too bright - it gives girls hope and knowledge that things can turn around. Not a anguishing read, just a really good one.”
