Underlake reviewed on The American Journal!

Daria Anne DiGiovanni is active in many facets of the literary world. She is the author of Water Signs, a contemporary love story with heart and values. She is a ghost writer, host of several talk shows on Blog Talk Radio, and so much more. Yet another occupation in her repertoire is Reviewer of Fiction. And today, she made my day by posting a glowing review of Underlake on The American Journal! I love Daria's review because she totally "gets" the story:

…Katie Welch’s internal conflict stems from having a strong moral compass in a world where most parents have ceded responsibility. 

In Katie’s upper-crust clique, money is a substitute for time and attention, and the prevailing wisdom is that “kids are going to do it anyway.” Which is why Katie’s Manhattan friends — lacking any clearly defined boundaries — are thrust full speed ahead into adulthood long before they’re mature enough to cope with the potential fallout and consequences of adult activities.
