Returning home after being away for two long years, 16 year old Joanie Caldwell learns what is truly important in life: family, friendship and love. Set during the Winter of 1959 in Cincinnati, Ohio. “Thing’s Change” introduces Joanie Caldwell, her mother Carol and her overprotective brother Brad . As she stumbles along the path to adulthood along with her best friend Kate, Joanie learns that things do change and not always for the better. They face many adversaries along the way from a local gang leader to the spiteful school secretary and everything in between! I have been writing stories for fun for over seven years. Thing’s Change is geared toward teens but perfect for any romantic that believes true love does exist!
