Cascading Petals by Jane C. Brady

Summary: Jewel Hart has remained sweet and kind in spite of years of bullying. She is beautiful and has a great life and family, but she doesn’t belong. When the devastation of the rising suicides in her high school hits close to home and drives Jewel into a deep despair, things start to look up for her when she connects with a new student, Kaiden Carter. On the surface he’s perfect, but Jewel can’t shake the feeling that something is amiss.

According to the author, this book contains domestic violence, profanity and sexual violence against children.

Extended notes from the author: “The domestic violence is a shove, and the sexual abuse is a comment, not an actual scene. The language is mild, but I wanted to cover all bases. I rate Cascading Petals 16+ to be safe, but reviewers say preteen, teen and adult.”

The author has indicated that this book contains questionable content for children under 13.
