White Chalk is the eye-opening realistic look into the minds and actions of adolescents. Far from sugar-coated and rose-colored, this novel captures the raw, dark side of growing up.

Hardened, awkward, and self-deprecating, Chelle Whitney wouldn’t know a fairytale if it swooped down and saved her from a burning tower. She has spent her life hurting from the choices she’s made, the scars she’s created, and the bruises that identify her.

She’s one of the unlucky ones whose life is made up of demons that haunt her adolescence and threaten her adulthood.

Chelle grasps desperately at whoever can rescue her from herself and her pain. Reaching for comfort from her best friend, who’s outgrown her, and gripping naively to a teacher who takes entirely too much interest in her, she longs for someone who understands her. So when Troy Christiansen walks into her life, Chelle believes he could be the white knight who will finally save her.

Her salvation.

But can Chelle find salvation on her own terms, digging herself out of the Hell her life has created? Or will she forever be a victim of her circumstances, never breaking free of the restraints that define her?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

With a talent for storytelling that I have come to love, Tyler has done it again! A glimpse into a life of turmoil that feeds our thoughts with compassion and information, and perhaps changes an outlook or two. Emotionally loaded, this story will have you angry and teary in alternating pages, and while you can be thankful that Chelle is the product of a talented writer, you can’t help but realize that her story is not a singular one: others have lived or are living her life experiences as you read.

*******

Every parent of a teenager should read this book. It’s gritty, raw, and extremely realistic but it shows what can happen when a child is neglected and pushed aside. The author weaves a gripping story of a young girl searching for acceptance the only way she knows how but finds no matter what she does, love is just out of reach.

*******

A sad and engrossing story. Enjoyable characters who confront very dark issues. Doesn’t pull any punches. Great writing.

Sadly it is the story of too many teenagers in our society. A young girl raising herself because her parents are so dysfunctional…predator teacher who takes advantage…bullies who cant know how much words hurt…alcohol, cigarettes, sex and no supervision, is all the ingredients for tragedy. This author has given us an insight into the mind, heart and physic of teen mental and emotional pain. Loved it and will have my friends with teenagers read it.

Chelle’s angst, confusion, and pain were beautifully written and her story made me ache to wrap her up in a hug. This is one of those stories that will stick with me for a long while and I highly recommend it.
