Why Krista Wagner Wrote Cassi is in a Coma

A Small Town Secrets Novel

cover art

The idea that a large group of people can turn on one person might be hard to believe. Unfortunately, it happened to me on a few different occasions. Thankfully, I did not wind up in a coma like Cassi, but I was emotionally and mentally ostracized to a great degree. I dedicated this YA supernatural mystery thriller to those who have been betrayed in the worst kind of way. I wrote the novel when I saw a need to tell a story about someone who is liked by everyone at her school and then is suddenly treated like a pariah without any explanation. Unfortunately, this is an experience that many of us can relate to. 

There is a lot of mystery and thrill here. You will find a surprising story that uncovers many secrets through a barrage of flashbacks, dreams, and an out-of-body journey.

Here’s an excerpt!

Violet looked me squarely in the eyes and spit on my face. Literally. Then she said something that made everything clear. Now I understood what had happened, how it had all gotten to this point. They put me here. They set me up. I was their jug, a container to use and fill with whatever they pleased.

Violet spoke. “I hate myself for ever letting you into my life.” She stepped right up to me, her mouth so close to my cheek that I could feel her breath. Her voice was filled with venom. “You. Are. Not. Wanted.”

I turned away and cried. “You were the one who left that message on my locker. Why?!” I couldn’t bear to look at her, my heart was breaking, like it would splatter to the ground at any minute.

Mike broke in. His tone was calm and cold. “You know exactly what you did.”

I sniffled, wiped the tears pouring off my face, and turned to them. Shaking my head, I said, “No. No, I don’t.” I despised the way my voice came across all shaky and nervous, like I had done something, like I was guilty.

Violet flicked my chin with a long fingernail. “Monster.” Then she said it again. And Mike joined her. And then Robyn was chanting too. They paraded around me on the football field, in a half-crouching position as they circled me, chanting faster and faster, “Monster, Monster!”
