Somebody's Daughter by Rochelle B. Weinstein

Emma and Bobby Ross enjoy a charmed life on the shores of Miami Beach. They are a model family with a successful business, an uncomplicated marriage, and two blessedly typical twin daughters, Zoe and Lily. They are established members of a tight-knit community.

Then, on the night of the girls’ fifteenth birthday party, they learn of Zoe’s heartbreaking mistake—a private and humiliating indiscretion that goes viral and thrusts her and her family into the center of a shocking public scandal.

As the family’s core is shattered by disgrace, judgment, and retribution, the fallout takes its toll. But for Emma, the shame runs deeper. Her daughter’s reckless behavior has stirred memories of her own secrets that could break a marriage, a family, and friendships forever.  

My Thoughts
I am speechless after reading this book. 
This book is amazing yet gut wrenching, sad yet uplifting.  It's powerful and tells a story that every parent of teenagers must read.
This is hands down my top book of 2018.  Why?  Because it's a book that needed to be written and is a testament to the times that our children are growing up in.  The digital age is terrifying and never ending and we all need to be aware.
This truly could be somebody's daughter/son, anyone of us.  Every teen has the risk of this type of event changing their lives forever.  No one is immune. 
When I was reading, I thought of my daughter and what I would do if this happened to my family?  What would I do?  How would I react?
Zoe show's courage wise beyond her years but what her parents need to try and teach is forgiveness.  But how can they teach forgiveness if they themselves are unable to forgive?
I recommend and will recommend this book to everyone I know.
