But We Carry On: A YA novel, written by Melinda Copeland
It isn’t like eighteen-year-old Maggie Rae thought that life would ask her permission before it threw her a curve-ball, but still, a warning would have been nice.
Having just split up with her longtime boyfriend, Marcus, she’s still nursing a freshly broken heart when she finds herself intervening to stand up for Toby, a fellow student being bullied in the halls at school. Thrust together by circumstance, the two quickly become friends as they discover a common passion for animal rights and work together to launch a protest that just might make waves in their small town.
Meanwhile, Marcus is still trying to fix their fractured relationship, and Maggie Rae must consider: Can she leave behind her heartache and move forward with Marcus? Or are some betrayals too big to forgive?

It was perfect, Melinda. I just read over two hundred pages because I needed to finish it. Admittedly it was difficult to make it through the final handful of pages through tears, though. I just loved it. Literally just put it down and need to process and sleep but needed you to know…The characters were great and relatable and I felt those emotions with them and was surprised at how much I could connect with each of them. –Kyla
You have a lovely way with words, and I loved the backward chapter setup (loved) and time lapse characterizations. It kept me riveted… Even if there’s disagreement in topic or content, no one could deny that character development and plot analysis were spot-on… I could feel the passion throughout the book, too, within the characters and how they expressed themselves, and this moves your audience… Buuuuttttt I couldn’t help but wonder…will there be a sequel??? –Amanda
