About this book

Dark Poppy’s Demise (ePub) | Young Adult Fiction

Sally-Ann Partridge

All Jenna wants is for someone to notice her, but all everybody sees is a gawky teenager with an overactive imagination. But she leads a double life. As Dark Poppy, she can be herself. Her online friends see her for who she truly is: a sensitive, creative young woman with a talent for photography. When she receives a friend request from Robert Rose on Facebook, she doesn’t hesitate to start up a friendship.

But then, why shouldn’t she? He’s the hottest guy she’s ever seen; with emerald green eyes that seem to stare right through the computer screen . . .

Dark Poppy’s Demise is S.A. Partridge’s third novel for young people.
