To Know Me by Marcy Blesy 
(To Know Me #1) 
Publication date: August 21st 2013
Genres: Romance, Young Adult


To know me is to die.

Seventeen-year-old Mae is convinced that the consequences of her poor decisions have caused the untimely deaths of her dad, sister Laura, and grandma who all die within a year, no matter how ludicrous her thoughts seem to those she loves. The solution? Run away so no one else she cares for gets hurt (even if she has to keep a GPS tracker on her phone at all times).

Desperate to earn her diploma and salvage something of her life, she transfers schools when people get too close. After switching to Woodson Prep with only two months to go until graduation, Mae keeps her goals in sight. But when she meets Ty, the “perfect boy” with his own secrets and a relentless interest in Mae, she must decide if she can stop running from the past and still protect those she loves.

TO KNOW ME is the first book in a new YA romance series that follows Mae from her senior year in high school through her first two years in college as she learns to accept the consequences of her past mistakes that keep impacting the relationships with those she loves…and those she shouldn’t.      Out now:  TO KNOW ME…TO LOVE ME…TO FORGIVE ME…and coming in summer 2014: TO CHOOSE ME.

Purchase:   Amazon
know me is to die. I mean, to really know me, like when you
know I can run for hours without so much as a water break, or that cinnamon
sugar doughnuts are my weakness, or that my dad gave me a whole different name.
But I don’t let people get that close. I’ve learned the hard way. Too many people
die in my life. Grandma said I was only unlucky.
“It’s not your fault all those people you love die. It’s
just bad luck that you’ve had to deal with grief so young. Not fair at all,”
she’d said. That was right before she died on my seventeenth birthday and right
after my sister Laura, my dad, and my dog Petie.
I direct Mom Number 4 toward the front door of the high
school. I always get a new mom when I transfer schools. I have yet to find a
school that allows a seventeen-year-old to register herself. I wanted to
graduate in Ohio, but too many people started asking questions. They weren’t
important questions. Just stuff like, “How come I can’t ever come over to your
house?” or “Why won’t you ever talk about yourself?” or when I do, “That’s not
what you told so-and-so.” I had to leave. To let people into my life isn’t an
option anymore. But, there’re no worries anyone will start to ask questions
here. It’s already March. That diploma is as good as mine. Then I can enroll in
online college and try to salvage something of my pathetic life.
