Loved is the story of a girl, but not just one girl, every girl – what we struggle with, what we celebrate, and how we love.
Kimberly Novosel’s debut novel, Loved, is an inspiring and poignant coming-of-age story as well as a moving portrait of the struggles that we all face as we grow up and find ourselves suddenly expected to have all the answers.
Kim Carlson is a quiet, optimistic dreamer when she trades in the golden fields of her youth for the busy big city streets of her future. She leaves behind a life of Sunday mass, good friends and homework for a world where skipping class, drinking, and friends who leave her alone on her birthday are the norm. On the road to building a career in the music industry and searching for true love, she instead finds loneliness, betrayal and heartache.
