A story about a troubled girl and her effed up, going-nowhere life.
Quick witted, sharp-tongued Righteous Andrews is troubled by a broken past, fed up with her present circumstances, and resolved to a hopeless future.
On the first day of her senior year of high school she gets in trouble, landing in the principal’s office . . . again. There she meets Colt Jackson, the new kid with a troubled past of his own. Despite her attempts to avoid him, Colt seems to show up everywhere she doesn’t want him to be, and soon they strike up an unexpected friendship. Righteous is wary. Friendships aren’t her thing. But something about Colt is different; something about him makes her curious, makes her wonder . . .
Is Colt Jackson really different from everyone else? Does happiness and love truly exist? Or will every relationship in her life always end in lies and heartache?

"This book is awesome! I adored Righteous right from the first page." - Cheryl Beck, Educator at Orange County Public Schools
"This was a very enjoyable book. I adored Righteous . . . One thing that Kim Lehman is very good at is creating an assortment of people who seem as though they have no business being in each other's lives, but who fit together anyway. It would not have occurred to me to put a murderer, an elderly dementia patient, and a perpetually angry teenager together, but you know what? It works. Righteously." - Bobbie Grob for Readers' Favorite
