A secret revealed.

A girl’s life changed forever.

2013-Award-Books~~Life on Hold

Hi, I’m Myra. My life gets more complicated by the minute. Who would think their parents would lie to them? I never suspected a thing, until that day, that horrid day that changed my life forever. My story may not be so different from yours. If so, I hope yours has a happy ending.

On the plus side, my novel has won a couple of awards that make me smile. LIFE ON HOLD won the Literary Classics Seal of Approval and was the Silver Award Recipient in Children’s Literary Classics YA fiction, 2013. I’m over the moon. LIFE ON HOLD is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble in print or ebook.

What people are saying:

“McClure captured the voice of the modern teen perfectly without relying on the usual snarky stereotypes we so often see in YA novels. These characters, both the main ones and the supporting ones, have good days and bad days. Sometimes, they do the right thing; sometimes, they make lousy decisions. Just like real teens.” Darby Karchut, author of the Griffin Series and the Finn Finnegan Series.

“Beverly McClure deals with complicated issues like adoption, teen pregnancy, and family secrets with realism and sensitivity. Teen readers can easily relate to Myra’s pain and rebellion. Part coming of age, part teen romance, “Life on Hold” is full of surprises.” Peggy Tibbetts, author of Letters to Juniper, and Crazy Bitch (about a dog.)
