Tattooed Teardrops is the winner of the Top Fiction award for the 2016 In The Margins Best Books for Teens literary award. The In the Margins Committee seeks books by, for and about kids living in the margins. They strive to find the best books for teens living in poverty, on the streets, in custody - or a cycle of all three. 

"I don't plan on getting in any trouble."

Tamara had thought that when she got out of juvie, things would be easier. But before long, it seems like her life is spiraling into chaos.

If she can't prove to her probation officer that she is innocent of the allegations against her, she's going back to prison, and Tamara just can't let that happen.

-For me, a sign of a good book is that it is a quick read, holds my interest front to back and I like the characters. This book met the mark on all three of those characteristics.

-A slimy villain, an eager-to-please side-kick and a heroine who simply wants to move on from her past make for an intriguing tale, indeed! 

-A realistic and beautiful story filled with suspense, heartbreaking friendship and loyalty that will keep you reading until the very end.

This book has such a calming tone and mood.........I like it. Most books that I have read rush into things, but....this book takes it slow and steady, and I admire that

I'm not criticising your writing, but it's how the owners train the dogs. We have a Rottie and she wouldn't hurt a fly.
