Text Me When You Get This

by Frances Lucas

Seventeen-year-old Nora Thomas carries the burden of childhood loss and trauma, navigating life shrouded in solitude.

A school trip introduces her to Claire Tucker, who is everything Nora’s not. Optimistic, outgoing, self-confident. She’s a magnet to others, including the mysterious Ethan St. James, Claire’s best friend since freshman year.

When Nora and Claire begin an unlikely romance in another city, Ethan, absent for weeks, suddenly reappears. A brutal murder follows in his wake and the girls soon discover that some secrets are best left unexplored.

"Text Me When You Get This is a romantic thriller told from the alternating viewpoints of the two main characters, Nora and Claire. Nora's suspicious and obsessive like me. Claire's the girl I've always wanted to be, cheerful and optimistic.

Their relationship starts off as an "opposites attract" until they discover they have something very odd in common, leading them to a Pandora's Box they wish they'd never opened.

Crafting humor in the framework of romantic suspense is what I usually aim for. I hope readers will connect with this new standalone novel set in Alaska."

Krysten R. - I was not expecting quite a few of the twists and turns. This was so enjoyable!

Sam B. - This dark, atmospheric mystery kept me guessing until the end. Frances Lucas is really on to something with her YA novels.

Ashley P. - Text Me When You Get This was a fun twisty YA novel. I loved the main characters Claire and Nora and how well they balance each other's personalities. I also love the queer and neurodivergent representation in this book.

Samantha B. - This was a very intriguing story! I had no idea what way things were going to go and did not want to put this book down!
