If Grace is Dead I Killed Her

Teen Bullying Gone Bad

When her cruelty spirals toward tragedy, can a mean girl ever discover the power of kindness?

Fourteen-year-old Maddie Hunter desperately longs to matter. Neglected by a single mum consumed by drinking and hooking up, the queen bee fights feelings of invisibility by striking out at those on her hit list. When a romance with the hot new boy in town blossoms, she has high hopes for happiness until her bad behavior leads to another dead end. Hell-bent on revenge, Maddie’s malice spins out of control and catches the stern attention of school officials. But when her rage targets a shy nerd in a spiteful scheme, the consequence of her actions might prove lethally irreversible.

Can Maddie turn herself around in time to save lives? Including her own?

T.G. Starr’s debut YA novel If Grace is Dead I Killed Her was released in 2021 and is part of The Golden Phone trilogy which aims to educate and assist young adults and their families who are experiencing bullying from either side of the fence and is a true-to-life drama containing a strong message and a road to redemption.

With many friends and family spread across the globe, it was perhaps unsurprising that T.G. decided to move away from Manchester England for a new life. She has lived in three different countries and shares her home on Australia’s sunny Gold Coast with her one-eyed Maltese Dog, Mary. 

T.G. Starr plans to retire from the corporate world and create books that inspire people to lead lives filled with kindness, love, and positivity.
