Product Description

2018 Readers' Favorite Award Winner--Coming of Age

Despite the years of bullying in school, Jewel Hart has remained sweet and kind. She has it all--a great life, a great family, and beauty--but she has never been able to obtain the one thing she wants--to belong. 

When Jewel meets Kaiden Carter, a good-looking, charming new student at York Mills High, things start to look up. On the surface, he is perfect, but Jewel can't shake the feeling that everything is not as it seems. 

When the devastation of the rising suicides in her school hits too close to home and drives Jewel into a deep despair, she clings to Kaiden's strength to find her way back. Through the pain and fear surrounding her, she finds hope and the will to go on. But just as she picks herself up, tragedy strikes again, threatening to steal her last glimmer of hope. How will she go on? Can she ever find her place in the world?

Recommended for ages 16+


"In Cascading Petals, by Jane C Brady, we face bullying head-on, not in an abstract manner, but in a deeply personal and realistic way.
Cascading Petals is very much a teen romance story and one that is beautifully told by author Jane C Brady, but it is very much more than that. The author uses the story to explore dark and often hitherto hidden places where teenage minds and angst can reside, especially when faced with the hurtful taunts and lies of not only their peers, but even some of their teachers. The ulterior motive of this book was clearly to shine a light into areas that we, as adults, are often afraid to go and to show just how incredibly debilitating systematic and concerted bullying can be, not just to those being bullied, but often to the perpetrators themselves. Brady tells the story in a no-holds-barred narrative and yet maintains a sensitivity and a compassion that we wish were present inside of those who choose to relieve their own inner pain at the expense of others. This is one of the best books on the subject I've read and Brady is to be congratulated for telling this difficult story without resorting to clichés and over-emotional responses. A great job."⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-Readers' Favorite

"This beautifully written and heartbreaking story deals with the issue of bullying and suicide. I rode a chaotic and emotional roller coaster ride with this book not only because of the outstanding job the author did with the writing and characters but also with the fact that these things happen to so many teens every single day."⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-YA Book Divas

This is an excellent story.  Very well-written. I wish that every student could read this book and then discuss it with others.  What a powerful reminder to us all about the hardships of growing up and attending school.
The characters are very well-developed.  I enjoyed them all. I felt their emotions, the ups and downs.  I shed a lot of tears.
I would highly recommend this book to pre-teens, teens and even adults.  It is a good reminder for everyone.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-Rockin' Book Reviews

"The entire story was moving and brilliantly done." Haddie's Haven 

About the Author

Jane lives life to the full because she doesn't want to wake up twenty years from now regretting all the things she didn't do. She's an avid traveler who also loves throwing elaborate dinner parties where she wows her guests with gourmet meals. Jane has a passion for writing, interior design, history, movies, board games, and fitness. In her quest for an exciting life, however, she now draws the line at zip-lining, which she experienced in Costa Rica. Never again! Jane comes from a family of six sisters and lived in a Tennessee plantation house for several years while growing up. She now lives in Western Canada but dreams of owning a vacation home in South Carolina. She lives with her husband (her high school sweetheart), two teenagers, and two dogs. When she grows up, she'd like to be her brilliant sixteen-year-old daughter (minus the mood swings). Cascading Petals is her first novel.
