About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Maggie Turpen, a committed and caring administrator in a suburban school district outside Minneapolis, finds her world shaken as one teenager after another in Bushwood commits suicide. The frightening statistics hit close to home as her nephew becomes one of the victims. Frustrated by the indifference of the superintendent and school board, she becomes a champion for preventing further deaths. As Maggie seeks to unravel the causes for each tragedy, she faces her own personal demons including a romantic relationship gone wrong. With the elements of a puzzling mystery, the story is a roller coaster ride that challenges the reader to keep pace. Suicide Track’s outcome is surprisingly upbeat and realistic with model prevention programs rising out of the ashes. Although the book is fiction, the author’s experience and background help her provide real-life solutions to the mental health problems experienced in many school districts beset by tragedy. The book not only awakens readers to a problem that is reaching shocking proportions, but provides a method of attack to halt the epidemic.

Deftly constructed at 243 pages, Suicide Track is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Fiction category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Suicide Track meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $17.95.
