M. Doty

When: Sat., Nov. 3, 4 p.m. 2012

Parker acts out against family drama by ditching a starring role on her softball team and embarking on a relationship with an assistant baseball coach. Samantha's innocent kiss at a high school party ends with the death of the boy she kissed -- the tragic result of his severe peanut allergy. Kate takes on her school's secret underground society and won't rest until the people who murdered her best friend are brought to justice. Get Real: Contemps on Tour features authors reading from their young-adult fiction books (some inspired by true stories) about the high school experience. M. Doty (Surviving High School), Miranda Kenneally (Stealing Parker), Janet Gurtler (Who I Kissed),and sisters Lisa and Laura Roecker (The Liar Society: Lies That Bind)will share their books and teenage horror stories at Books Inc.
