Saving Gavin ~ Review

Saving Gavin 
an Evan Series Novellete
by Venessa Kimball
Publication Date: June 9, 2015
When Gavin Ferguson reached his breaking point, he dismantled everyone in his wake. 
The bullying, the secrets, his father’s death, how he was different; it was all too much to bear. In his mind, the trigger was set and needed to be pulled. 
Saving Gavin delves into the now displaced mind of Gavin as he is admitted to Pembroke Psychiatric Center after a tragic event at his high school. The question is can he be saved after such a dismantling trauma or is he forever lost? 

*Saving Gavin is a companion novelette in the Evan series, following the international best selling full length novel, Dismantling Evan. *

Saving Gavin picks up right where we left off. While visiting with family & friends Gavin is working through the recent events & struggling to fill in the blanks. Allowing us the walk through Gavin's photographs was an interesting way to give clues. I'm hopeful that Gavin will be able to go home soon, but until then I look forward to see what else Dr. Larson's visits reveal.

Dismantling Evan
Publication Date: January 15, 2015

Life is unstable... 
…What will be the trigger to dismantle it? 
When high school senior Evangeline "Evan" Phillips moves half way across the country with her parents to a quaint town in Texas, it should be a chance to start over. 
It should be. 
Typical of Evan, she doesn’t share her parents’ optimism. Always the loner, she is prepared to hide behind work at the school newspaper until graduation. That is the seemingly bulletproof plan until she meets her new neighbors, Gavin and Brody Ferguson. 
The more Evan gets to know her neighbors, their band of friends, and frenemies, the more unsettling her new high school and community gets in Braxton Springs, Texas. 
As Evan unwittingly digs deeper into the lives of those around her, her own skeletons begin to surface leaving her vulnerable and scrambling to keep her own sanity and reputation. Will Evan be able to get control over her spiraling secrets while discovering friendship and love for the first time? 
Or will the issues and pressures of life as a band of not-so-average teens in a very typical high school become too much, resulting in the tragic dismantlement of an entire community and Evan herself? 
Dismantling Evan is a fresh and edgy work of literary fiction that snapshots how life as a teen in modern society can be unstable and the social issues and pressures revolving around them can tip the fleeting stability of society over the edge.
