About Killer Potential

Seventeen-year-old Yvette Gibbs was just admitted to the hospital psych unit in handcuffs as the main suspect in a murder case, which she refuses to talk about.  

Drugs and depression claim her family—leaving Yvette to fight her own demons alone. Adopting the skill of master of passive-aggressive vengeance lands Yvette in the psych unit with no family support, unless she cooperates with her therapist to clear her name, also a convicted murderer.

Yvette wants revenge on the world that taught her to be afraid, claimed her mother to depression, hid her father in a fog of job hopping, turned her brother to dealing drugs, and swallowed her sister whole, but to achieve this she must lie, manipulate, and most of all survive. Pitting her dead sister’s shady friend whom she fears against the man who reminded her she’s not immune to victimization, is her perfect solution to all life's hassles, even if that means she ends up with blood on her hands. Until everything backfires.

About Aften Brook Szymanski

Aften Brook Szymanski, at the age of five, once fell on her bum looking out a large picture window while eating a pickle and people laughed. She thought she was funny, life has never been the same. She’s obsessed with LEGOs, cozy reading nooks, and over-the-knee socks. A graduate of the College of Southern Idaho with an Associate of Arts degree, Brigham Young University with a Bachelor of Science degree, and the University of Utah with a Master of Education degree. Learning is more fun than testing, sometimes we have to endure both.

She lives in a very cold Wyoming valley with her husband, three kids, and one unhappy cat, where they are being cryogenically preserved for all time—thanks to how cold it is.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I'll start at the very beginning. in right at the beginning ...awesome job on the cover art ! The story is phenomenal!
It's so sad how many times some people pay the price for bad decisions and actions by others and to a degree this is what happened to Yvette.
Both parents were there but not if that makes sense, they were absent emotionally and there was no moral compass or guidance in her life
The fact that they opened their home to foster children softened me a bit . Yvette had many siblings and she got exposed to may different personalities .....
Certain events see Yvette ending up in a mental hospital and facing possible murder charges !
We're taken from past to present which gives us background to events leading up to where she finds herself now . A task that the author took on and did very well at .
There were some really interesting characters along the way and then were some that just gave me the heebie jeebies !
In between the depression, addiction , physios and thoughts of revenge there were some tender moments and even some comical.
Killer Potential really makes you think!
