In Exposure , Therese Fowler has written her most gripping novel to date--a ripped-from-the-headlines story of ardent young love and a nightmarish legal maelstrom that threatens to destroy two families.

Amelia Wilkes's strict father does not allow her to date, but that doesn't stop the talented, winsome high school senior from carrying on a secret romance with her classmate Anthony Winter. Desperately in love, the two envision a life together and plan to tell Amelia's parents only after she turns eighteen and is legally an adult. Anthony's mother, Kim, who teaches at their school, knows--and keeps--their secret. But the couple's passion is exposed sooner than planned: Amelia's father, Harlan, is shocked and infuriated to find naked pictures of Anthony on his daughter's computer. Just hours later, Anthony is arrested.

Despite Amelia's frantic protests, Harlan uses his wealth and influence with local law enforcement and the media to label Anthony a deviant who preyed on his innocent daughter. Spearheaded by a zealous prosecutor anxious to turn the case into a public crusade against "sexting," the investigation soon takes an even more disturbing and destructive turn.

As events spiral wildly out of control and the scandalous story makes national news, Amelia and Anthony risk everything in a bold and dangerous attempt to clear their names and end the madness once and for all.

A captivating page-turner, Therese Fowler's Exposure is also a deftly crafted, provocative, and timely novel that serves as a haunting reminder of the consequences of love in the modern age.

I gave this book 4* in the end but the whole time I was reading it, it was completely insufferable. The subject matter and storey line was irritating b/c it’s the entire Dad’s fault, he screwed up his daughter’s life and everyone in it and they just sit there and take it. It made my Go-Train commute irritating. That being said, if you have teenagers force them to read it in the hope of scaring the sh** out of them with charges you didn’t realize could hold their weight – based on a true storey of the author’s son actually, brutal.

At first, I thought this book was geared more towards teens and the texting world, but I learned a lot about my teens world of communication and the risks involved with it.
