)-- Saving Phoebe Murrow by Herta Feely chosen as Medalist Winner in the General Fiction category of the New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing.
Phoebe’s mother, Isabel, is precariously balancing career and family. Hard-working and caring, worried but supportive, all Isabel wants, in a world of bullies and temptations, is to keep her daughter Phoebe safe. With her busy schedule, though, she fails to recognize another mother’s mounting fury and the danger Phoebe faces by flirting with a mysterious boy on Facebook.
A cyber-bullying episode aimed at Phoebe has horrific consequences. In her search for justice, Isabel, a DC lawyer, sets out to find the culprit behind this cruel incident.
Saving Phoebe Murrow, set amidst the complicated web of adolescent relationships, tells a story of miscommunication and malice, drugs and Facebook, prejudice and revenge.
