Los Angeles, CA – Author AmyLea Murphy debuts her first novel, Fine, November 17, 2020. Fine is an intimate glimpse into the private world of two teenage girls struggling to be themselves in a demanding and unforgiving world. Inspired by the resiliency of the human spirit, AmyLea Murphy writes about life-changing moments in the hope of empowering her readers to embrace life in all of its messiness.
AmyLea Murphy’s Fine follows the story of Anna Williams—straight-A student, cheerleader, and all-around golden child who vanished six years ago. After all these years, no one knows what happened or why.
Her younger sister, Katie, has drifted through life ever since, wracked with guilt, grief, and anger over Anna’s unsolved disappearance. But when her future reaches a breaking point, Katie takes the investigation into her own hands. Searching for answers in her sister’s missing person’s file, she discovers that some questions aren’t so easy to answer.
Through police memos, interrogations, and excerpts from Anna’s diary, Katie peaks behind the carefully crafted façade Anna left behind and uncovers the dark truths of her life in the months before she went missing. Unsettling and surprising, Fine is a mystery that will break your heart and put it back together again.
Fine blends the mystery of Sadie and Vanishing Girls with the poignancy of Sarah Dessen. Inspired by Gayle Forman and Jennifer Niven. Written for all ages, Fine is a reminder of the resiliency of the human spirit and brings out the inner teenager in everyone.
“Poignantly and skillfully rendered, Murphy’s writing gradually reveals what truly lies behind a perfect mask.” – Kathy Berla, author of The House at 758 and Going Places
Fine is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.
