Author Event - What Happens Next by Colleen Clayton
When sixteen-year-old Cassidy “Sid” Murphy ends up on a ski lift next to handsome local college boy, Dax Windsor, she’s thrilled, but Dax takes everything from Sid—including a lock of her perfect red curls—and she can’t remember any of it. Back home and unable to relate to her old friends, Sid drops her college prep classes and takes up residence in the AV room with only Corey Livingston for company. But as she gets to know Corey, Sid finds someone who truly makes her happy. Now, if she can just shake the nightmares and those few extra pounds, everything will be perfect, or so she thinks. Colleen Clayton’s debut novel will really hit close to home, as it’s set right here in Lakewood. Before she became a writer, Clayton was a social worker for teens in a residential treatment center. She holds a master’s from the NEOMFA and her Kirkus-starred young adult novel What Happens Next was a finalist for the Ohioana Book Award. Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
