Emily Bell finally has everything she wants. The boy she loves, Sam Border, lives just down the road, and they're now in a healthy, committed relationship. Her family is adopting his younger brother, and now she and Sam have a whole summer to enjoy together without the stresses of his traumatic past with a criminally insane father. But little do they know that Clarence Border is planning a jailbreak...and then he's coming after Emily and his sons to get revenge. When Emily is taken at gunpoint, there's only one person who secretly witnesses the crime: the charismatic new girl in town, Destiny, who has been flirting with Sam since she arrived and making Emily question the loyalty of the person she thought she could trust most. Now the two girls will have to band together and find a way to outwit Sam's vengeful father before it's too late in an edge-of-your-seat race to the finish. Like I'll Be There, JUST CALL MY NAME is a riveting, emotional drama about what it means to be friends and what it means to be enemies, blending literary and fast-paced writing to create pitch-perfect crossover appeal.
Holly considers her writing to be the most rewarding thing she's ever done in her life. She believes a perfect day to be one where she writes in the morning, takes a long walk by the Pacific Ocean in the afternoon, and she spends the evening with her family and friends around her large dining room table. http://hollygoldbergsloan.com/aboutholly.html
