About the Book

They all called her Krazy

 

Fourteen-year-old Nicole Adams of South Florida awakes from a coma and finds her life changed forever. She has to testify at the trial of her mom’s boyfriend, Ricaldo, who brutally beat her upon discovering her shameful secret – cutting.

After moving in to live with her Aunt Lori and cousin Johnny in New York, Nicole becomes “Niki,” and encounters friends like Blondie and Lo, and a new crush, Blake, who help her face her deepest fears. Through teachers Ms. Parker and her P.O.W.E.R. group and Ms. Gonzalez and her Poetry Slam Club, Niki is beginning to heal – until Ashley Williams publicly humiliates Niki, tailspinning her lower than ever.

Krazy White Girl is Nicole's story, including her battle with cutting – up front, personal, gripping.
