from Taken by Storm . . .
"I’m lost to his firm chest,
his slender fingertips, his long wavy hair,
his mouth sucking my bottom lip--
The world spins, the stars shift,
and I can’t see anything except his smoky
gray eyes gazing into mine.
You scare me, whispers
from my mouth across his.
Good, he breathes into me.
I need you to save me."
Michael and Leesie's story continues in Unbroken Connection.

Publisher's Weekly, starred review
“Leesie, a devout Mormon, lives by her church’s teachings ('No parking. No necking. No petting. No fornication') and is looking forward to attending Brigham Young University, where there will be 'thousands and thousands of the hottest guys on the planet who all live by the same rules.' But that’s before she falls in love with 'outsider' Michael, a scuba diver. . . . Through Michael’s dive-log journal entries, Leesie’s poetry and online chats, Morrison conveys underlying tensions that threaten the teenagers’ relationship and test their moral codes.”
“A debut novel that is satisfying on every level.” – YA legend, Ron Koertge (Stoner & Spaz)
“An amazing story written with a clear, refreshing, creative voice.” – Jack Weyland (Charly)
“Morrison’s distinctive mix of poetry and modern dialogue bring the subjects of peer pressure, religion, and grief to the forefront in an accessible and dramatic way.” – Deseret News
“Fans of Meyer’s Twilight will enjoy this non-vampiric tale with similar romantic chords.” – Amber Gibson, TeensReadToo
“Angela’s writing is stunning.” – Kathi Baron (Shattered)
“By contrasting Michael and Leesie’s often opposing backgrounds and points of view, [Morrison] handles the topics of religion and premarital sex gracefully without passing judgment. The message has less to do with religion than learning to respect and cherish others while staying true to one’s own beliefs.” – Publisher’s Weekly, starred review
