BHC Press to Publish the Surviving Hope Series by Lisa Shambrook

Lisa_BHC_Web_2015BHC Press will be publishing Lisa Shambrook’s young adult series Surviving Hope. Each book in the series focuses on an individual girl and explores themes of grief, mental health, and the struggle to find personal identity. Written with warmth and understanding, Ms. Shambrook’s series lets teens know they aren’t alone, and that even though life at times can feel overwhelming, we can survive if we embrace hope.

“I wrote these books with themes that felt dark at times, but lived within my heart,” said Lisa Shambrook. “These stories needed to be told and beneath the struggle we all experience, there is an underlying message of hope. No matter what scars we have, we should always be true to our own authenticity.”

The series focuses on three girls: Freya, Meg, and Jasmine, and the circumstances that intertwine their lives. In BENEATH THE RAINBOW: FREYA’S STORY, Freya’s death sends ripples through many lives. Meg has lost her best friend, and Jasmine has lost her sister. Lost dreams will need to be found, family secrets will need to be unearthed, and grief will need to be embraced before ghosts can be laid to rest.
