COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (July 28, 2010)—The secret is out: Award-winning author Melody Carlson’s passion for writing about the challenges and struggles young adults face has made her one of the Christian products industry’s leading novelists. Carlson’s TrueColors series, which focuses on hard-hitting issues such as suicide, addiction, and cutting, continues to top NavPress’ bestsellers list with more than 350,000 copies sold. Her new, edgy Secrets series promises to follow in TrueColors’ footsteps.

Secrets delves into the lives of teens whose secrets can make or break them. These realistic novels offer young readers hope by helping them discover that solid faith, loyal friends, and a persistent spirit will see them through rough times. In Forgotten, the first book in the series, teenager Adele is forced to grow up quickly when she tries to conceal her homelessness from her classmates.

"All teens have secrets—many are happy secrets, but some are not,” explains Carlson. “My hope is that my new series will help readers to realize that undisclosed heartbreaks are best healed when brought into the light."
