Ryan Revisited by Sam Davis

you don’t have any idea who you are, how do you decide who you want to be?
Who is
Ryan Ester? The Southern-belle-in-training her estranged father wants her to
be? The laid-back Montana girl she became after her parents’ divorce? Or
someone she has to discover on her own?
Ryan’s only shot at going to college is on her father’s dime, Ryan leaves
Bluffs, Montana to return to the antebellum South she once called home. As if
the move wasn’t hard enough, Ryan’s first love, who recently left her a
broken-hearted mess, has a scholarship to none other than Ryan’s destination,
the University of the South.
Ester may not know who she is, but she sure as heck knows who she doesn’t want
to become. As she tries to navigate scandal, heartache, and the unbearable
pressure to look and act perfect every waking second, she resents being pushed
by everyone who wants to decide for her. For the sake of her own sanity and the
hearts of those she cares most about, she will have to find a way to forge her
own path.
REVISITED is the story of a young woman’s search for identity. For serenity.
For the perfect landing spot for her aching heart.
Author’s Note:
RYAN REVISITED is also suitable for Mature YA readers as it does not
contain graphic sexual situations.



“You’re changing,
Ryan. This isn’t you.”
“If you’re so
disgusted with my choices and you think I’ve changed so much, then why do you
even keep talking to me?”
 “Because I keep thinking …” Manny looked
into my eyes. “I keep hoping I’m wrong.”
Excerpt 2:
just don’t understand. You don’t understand how it is,” I told him.
“I’m not trying to
interfere in your life, Ryan. I get that you have a life at U South that
doesn’t include me, one I don’t fit into.”
“No, you don’t get
it. I don’t live a double life.”
“Don’t worry about
it, Ryan. I’ll stay in the life where I belong—I won’t try to find a place in
your other one.”
“Don’t be so
dramatic.” Before I could stop my father’s words, they came out at Manny.
“Who are you,
How could he say
that to me? After everything I was so honest about with him, how could he? 
 I turned around and walked to my room, slamming the door behind me.
Refusing to ever hear Manny ask me that again.




Davis loves to write tucked away in her cave with a large sweet iced tea and
the occasional (grossly understated) chocolate vice. She lives in Texas now
with her hunky husband and three young daughters, but she was born in Georgia
and went to high school under the beautiful Big Sky of Montana. Due to Sam’s
nearly alarming obsessive personality and lack of gumption to act her age, she
spends too much time reading YA and NA books, watching the CW, using emoticons
and hashtags, shopping at Nordstrom BP, and writing anything and everything,
anywhere and everywhere. She loves to eat, Jillian Michaels (in that order),
Nutella, going to the movies, the written word, Jesus, Auburn football, Ron
Pope, Big Sky Country, and every kind of person.
