"The Waiting Room" is an adult-YA crossover about a woman coming of age in high school, college, and young adulthood, then coming of age again at thirty, when hitting rock bottom prompts her to revisit the choices that shaped her life. Taylor Collier has never faced her past-the distant past or the recent past. As a result, she's spiraled into a life fueled by alcohol and drugs. After her worried mother and best friend confront her, Taylor is given a choice-rehab or therapy. And so, intent on only a single session with Dr. Modos Marks, she enters his waiting room, planning to get in and get out. After all, she has successfully kept her most terrifying secret for fifteen years, so getting through one session with a shrink should be a piece of cake. But she's not prepared for what the doctor has in store for her. Session after session, he peels away the layers of her life, revealing that all is not as it seems-and unraveling a series of surprises that will leave both Taylor and the reader breathless.
