Sixteen-year-old Carly is set to become top of her art class until bully-boy Justin gives her a viscous payback for standing up for one of his victims. Her boyfriend, karate-trained nerd Dylan, wants to smash the guys face in, but a fight at school means suspension, losing his chance at school honors and facing a furious father. Carly is determined to find a more creative solution to her problem, but will she sort it out before Dylan’s inner cave man hijacks him and all hell breaks lose?
Justin might be a pain, but his harassment leads to a deepening of Dylan and Carly’s romance, and Carly finds an inner strength she didn’t know she had. The magical realism style provides a touch of fantasy in an otherwise very real story that offers heart-warming solutions to bullying. You Can’t Shatter Me is food for the soul. It has received a B.R.A.G.MedallionTM for outstanding fiction, an Awesome Indies Seal of Excellence in independent fiction and the Indie Book of the Day Award.
