In the blog tours, the bloggers will post a review, an interview, or guest blog. The interviews will be small, around 5 questions or so. Lastly, if the author is interested and has any spare copies she or he wishes to donate, a giveaway of the book featured will be added.
We currently have some authors who are going to participate for the month of May.
Carol Lynch Williams, author of the upcoming The Chosen One which is going to be published by St. Martin’s Press.
Summary of The Chosen One:
Thirteen-year-old Kyra has grown up in an isolated community without questioning the fact that her father has three wives and she has twenty brothers and sisters. Or at least without questioning them much—if you don’t count her secret visits to the Mobile Library on Wheels to read forbidden books, or her meetings with the boy she hopes to choose for herself instead of having a man chose for her. But when the Prophet decrees that Kyra must marry her sixty-year-old uncle—who already has six wives—Kyra must make a desperate choice in the face of violence and her own fears of losing her family.
J. A. Yang, author of the upcoming book, Exclusively Chloe, which will be published by Penguin on May 14, 2009.
Summary of Exclusively Chloe:
Chloe-Grace can’t help it—she’s spectacular. How could she not be with celebrity parents who have been the queen and king of Hollywood for years? And Chloe is a celebrity all unto herself as well— she’s the first celebrity-adopted kid in Hollywood. But now Chloe’s sixteen, and she is tired of every undesired moment of the world’s attention. She wonders what it would be like to be a “normal” kid in a regular school. To really understand it, though, she would need to go undercover. So after getting a “make-under” at the hands of her mother’s fabulous stylist, she enters the “real” world. But she soon finds out that there is just as much drama there as there is in Hollywood….
For the month of June we have:
Kerry Cohen Hoffmann, author of the upcoming, It’s Not You, It’s Me, which is going to be published by Random House on June 9, 2009.
Summary of It’s Not You, It’s Me:
Zoë loves Henry.
Henry dumps Zoë.
Zoë wants Henry back - at any cost.
Zoë's two best friends come up with a plan to help Zoë get what she thinks she wants. The plan: make Henry jealous.
But the plan takes a surprising turn...
Spanning thirty-one days in the cycle of a breakup, Kerry Cohen Hoffmann's funny and touching novel depicts a girl whose single-minded focus on her ex-boyfriend has pulled her far from the person she most needs to win back - herself.
Sarah Ockler, author of the upcoming book, Twenty Boy Summer, which is to be release by Little, Brown, on June 1, 2009.
Summary of Twenty Boy Summer:
For Anna Reiley and Frankie Perino, the ingredients for the Absolute Best Summer Ever are simple: Two girls. Two bikinis. And twenty days in Zanzibar Bay, California. The best part? According to Frankie, if they meet one boy every day, there’s a good chance Anna will find her first summer romance.
Anna lightheartedly agrees to the fun, but there’s something she hasn’t told Frankie… she’s already had her romance, and it was with Frankie’s older brother, Matt, just before his tragic death last year.
TWENTY BOY SUMMER explores what it truly means to love someone, what it means to grieve, and ultimately, how to make the most of every beautiful moment life has to offer.
