When you’re caught in traffic, you’ve got nowhere to go…
Val Delton’s life is spiraling and there’s nothing she can do to stop it. Her dad lost his job, her mom works fourteen hour days to pay the bills and yet somehow there are high-end shopping bags and an iPod in her older sister’s room. Naturally, Val becomes suspicious but her sister’s lips are sealed. Then by accident, she uncovers a dark, dangerous secret hidden behind her sister’s bright smiles and cool indifference. Val has no idea how far and how deep the repercussions of her sister’s secret will reach but she’ll do whatever it takes to keep her family safe. Will she succeed before her sister’s secret destroys everyone she loves?

So,I found the message about Melissa Groeling giving a free copy of "Traffic Jam" on a group at goodreads. At first I was like, "There's no way I'm gonna get a free copy. No chance at all". But then I was like "It wouldn't kill me to try". So,here I am. I find "Traffic Jam" really interesting! And I sure do love some mystery. :)
