New Book Release

Sometimes blood isn’t thicker than saltwater.

Remi Randell is trying to suffer through her last year of high school without causing too much trouble, enjoying what little time she has left on The Rock with her friends. Keeping her head down to avoid drawing the attention of her eldest brother, she struggles with old family wounds outside of her control and being the family outcast.

Alex Randell spends every waking moment trying to punish his sister for a decision that tore his family apart when he was just twelve years old, tossing their father and brothers in the middle of their fights and interfering in Remi’s everyday life. Despite the hate he harbours for his sister, something keeps nagging him to keep a close eye on her.

In a place where everyone is considered “your buddy” and your best friends are family, why can’t Remi and Alex learn to love each other when family is supposed to be everything?Can a family filled with hurt, secrets, and lies finally remember who knitted them before it’s too late?

We were merely held together by too many pieces of duct tape and fading happy memories […] Silence was deafening, but it wouldn’t cause irreparable damage.

Alex Randell, Where the Land Meets the Sea

Some Reviews for Lemonade Stand

I’m so drawn [into] Amanda’s stories when she writes them and posts them on her website. I just couldn’t help buying a book with her story in it! I can’t wait to have another one when it’s published!

Amanda and her story is like she magically provides people like myself with the courage to speak out about their own mental illness.

Beautifully written – Helps me realize my struggle doesn’t make me weak.

“Because my story isn’t just for me anymore. It’s for them. The ones still fighting, the ones still hurting. It’s for the ones who are still on the battlefield, tired, exhausted and ready to raise the white flag.” – Lemonade Stand
