Driving home from a bonfire party, eighteen-year-old John Hawk crashes, killing his girlfriend, Riley. Bullied and tormented at school, his guilty conscience crushing him, John transfers to a school in a little town on the banks of the Mississippi River in eastern Iowa, where he attracts the eye of the principal’s daughter, Megan Jones. Though he’s reluctant, she convinces him to be her prom date. The morning after prom, Principal Jones reports Megan missing. Four days later, her body is recovered from the river, and John becomes the prime suspect in her death, the police accusing him of rape and murder.

Charley Cotton, Megan’s best friend, knows that Megan had a secret, but she doesn’t trust John because of his past. John is desperate to avoid adding to the shame and guilt he carries for Riley’s death—it’s destroying his life. With Charley’s help, he learns that others in Megan’s life have a motive to keep her quiet. But every effort they make to uncover the truth edges them closer to a desperate murderer with everything to lose.

My Pain Woke Me Up- Bliss discusses the painful journey Jean experienced during her battle with breast cancer-from bilateral lumpectomy with radiation, to bilateral mastectomy with reconstructive surgery (four times), the onset of MRSA bacterial infection followed by a breast cellulitis infection, to her road to recovery and the pursuit of happiness. Her determination to help raise awareness and find a cure to end breast cancer forever grew stronger as her pain woke her up!
