Susan is the new girl—she’s sharp and driven, and strives to meet her parents’ expectations of excellence. Malcolm is the bad boy—he started raising hell at age fifteen, after his mom died of cancer, and has had a reputation ever since.

Susan’s parents are on the verge of divorce. Malcolm’s dad is a known adulterer.

Susan hasn’t told anyone, but she wants to be an artist. Malcolm doesn’t know what he wants—until he meets her.

Love is messy and families are messier, but in spite of their burdens, Susan and Malcolm fall for each other. The ways they drift apart and come back together are testaments to family, culture, and being true to who you are.

Review of The Beauty of the Moment

Review (4 Stars): The Beauty of the Moment was well-written and engaging story about growing up and finding who you are while dealing with everyone’s expectation of you.  Susan and Malcolm were trying to find their own place when their own world drastically changed and they were good together.  She was the good girl and he was the bad boy and I loved watching him grow over the course of this novel.  A wonderful thought-provoking read.
