    DESCRIPTION Ilsa J. Bick
    There are stories where the girl gets her prince, and they live happily ever after. (This is not one of those stories.)

    Jenna Lord's first sixteen years were not exactly a fairy tale. Her father is a controlling psycho and her mother is a drunk. She used to count on her older brother—until he shipped off to Iraq. And then, of course, there was the time she almost died in a fire.

    There are stories where the monster gets the girl, and everyone cries for his innocent victim. (This is not one of those stories either.)

    Mitch Anderson is many things: A dedicated teacher and coach. A caring husband. A man with a certain...magnetism.

    And there are stories where it's hard to be sure who's a prince and who's a monster, who is a victim and who should live happily ever after. (These are the most interesting stories of all.)

    Drowning Instinct is a novel of pain, deception, desperation, and love against the odds—and the rules.

    Lerner Interactive Books introduce students to knowledge areas in core grade-level curriculum in an engaging format. With titles that span curriculum themes from pre-K - 5th grade, Lerner Interactive Books give readers a digital option for reading that allows them to read, hear, and interact in a way that will engage and motivate them to read more and more often. It's a fast path to deepening students' love of reading and learning.
             
    From the opening page, audio and visual cues and easy-to-use tools help guide your students through the story. As the story begins, words are highlighted while they're read aloud. This type of word distinction better supports letter and word recognition skills, and keeps kids focused on the structure of how to read.

    "A compelling study of brokenness that persists across generations and of salvation by unconventional means." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
    Library Media Connection
    "A testament to the author's writing skill is the unanswered question: Was Anderson genuinely in love with Jenna or was he a sexual predator?" --Library Media Connection
