Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

And there's no "check Facebook 1 million times" in perseverance, right? :-)

Great perseverance quote. Here are some more I saw on Goodreads:

"Giving up is the only sure way to fail." ~ Gena Showalter

"You know what I did after I wrote my first novel? I shut up and wrote 23 more." ~ Michael Connelly

"If you can quit, then quit. If you can't quit, you're a writer." ~ R.A. Salvatore

Ahh, I love the one by Michael Connelly. It's sure hard to do. Pulling my hair out right now over a gigantic epic fantasy MS. *grinds teeth* Why do I tackle such difficult and complex story-lines so early in my writer experiences? (rhetorical)
