For the five kids who live at St. Jude’s Home for Court Placed Juveniles, life is a nightmare.

Carissa, the youngest, has been there the longest. And barely speaks. Rosa is sixteen and pregnant.

Simon keeps his head down and studies, hoping to get back the life he lost.

Beth and Tommy, in the middle of the darkness, have found each other, and all they want is to be together. But when they get caught making out at school, it puts everyone in danger. Tommy is used to the beatings from their foster father, but when Beth is singled out for punishment, Tommy can’t sit back and let it happen.


What happens that night rips apart the lives of the five teenagers forever.

After the blood has been spilled, a bargain is made. A deal with the devil that should have solved things. It should have fixed everything.

But nothing is free - not love, not innocence, and certainly not freedom. And sooner or later, all debts must be paid...

Book Review: 6 chilling stars!!

The words are needless. Molly O’Keefe created a storyline and heroes whose magnificence proves her greatness as a contemporary author.

The Debt is the first part and the prologue in O’Keefe’s new thrilling series, The Debt. In this short novella before the big opening of the next book and the telling of the story as it is now on June 19th, Lost Without You, we learn in just 4 intense chapters the events which took place and lead to the story the second, and then the third, book intends to unfold.

And no matter that it was only 4 chapters long, in any way wasn’t lacking in intense, body-shivering, undeniable gloriousness. With every new chapter I was devouring, the shivers all over my body were growing a lot by a lot. And don’t get me started on what the whole abusive background of these kids and the crucial events that took place did to me. I am still feeling the chilling that took over me the moment I realised all the horror behing the walls of their school.

“Maybe nothing will happen.”

“Something will happen. And when it does – fight.”

To say that I’m not waiting at the edge of my seat and my nails all bitten would be a major understatement. I can’t wait to get my greedy hands on Lost Without You and on Where I Belong, or how I looove to think of them after reading the prologue, O’Keefe’s New Gems.
