Meet Fiona Doyle. The thick ridges of scar tissue on her face are from an accident twelve years ago. Fiona has notebooks with lyrics about her frustrations, her dreams, and her crush on uber-jock Trent McKinnon. But if she can't even find the courage to look Trent straight in his blue eyes, she sure isn't brave enough to sing her songs at open mic night. Yet something's changing in Fiona. She can't be defined by her scars anymore.
And what if there hadn't been an accident?
Meet Fi Doyle. Fi is the top-rated high school lacrosse player in the state, heading to Northwestern on a full ride. She's got more important things to deal with than her best friend, Trent McKinnon, who wants more ever since the kiss. But when an unlucky move on the field screws everything up, she loses the thing she's best at. Can Fi fight back?
Hasn't everyone wondered what if
Everything That Makes You follows the same girl in two stories. Moving between them feels like a game, or a great song—exciting, unpredictable, and so compelling. In her daring debut novel, Moriah McStay gives us the opportunity to see what might have happened if things were different. Luck may determine our paths, but maybe it's who we are that determines our luck.
Moriah McStay attended Northwestern University and the University of Chicago. Two graduate degrees and seven jobs later, she’s finally figured out what she wants to be when she grows up. Now she lives in Memphis, Tennessee, with her husband and three daughters. She’s happy with all the choices and chances that brought her there.
Everything That Makes You is her first novel for teens, and she’s probably at home right now working on another one.
