Secrets Amongst Friends

Once so sure of herself, but now broken by bitterness and rage, Naomi has to overcome the world wind of temptations she has so eagerly given in to. Yet, hold on to her traditional religious values.


Naomi Marshall was a sheltered teenager. Her mother did everything in her power to raise her daughter with the same religious upbringing she experienced. All of her hard work seemed to have paid off until Senior year, when Naomi’s father was asked to lead his father-in-law’s old church causing the family to move from Michigan to Arkansas.


In search for something to believe in, Naomi seemed to be just the angel Mya Benson had hoped for. A troubled teen, who was no stranger to the courts, will be pushed to the edge when she discovers the life she’s been running away from is never far behind. Both girls are in for a surprise when they realize the secrets they both share are too big for them to sort out together.


Could the strength both girls have acquired help them in their weakest hour, or will their lives unravel and take a turn for the worse?

Not all secrets are meant
to be kept.

When Naomi moved to Arkansas from Michigan, she wasn't prepared for the secrets from her family's past to resurface. Her neighbor, Mya, is in desperate need of a friend and Naomi could be just what she needs.

What People Are Saying...

Jordan Belcher

"It was refreshing to read a story that delved deep into the hearts and minds of so many diverse characters. LaQueisha Malone pens a powerful story of faith, trust and distrust, friendship, love, and—most importantly—life-changing secrets. This is one story that’ll have you thinking about your own innermost secrets, as well as the secrets of those around you."


"I knew when I cracked this cover and read the first few paragraphs I was going to be treading a familiar ground or territory...This author delivery of the story was gripping and real, but I know she could have given us a lot more. I felt like I was cheated. I craved more! I gave this novel 4 stars."

T. Porter
