Are you ready to play? Let’s go!
We’re starting this leg of the race with my YA contemporary novel, Meant to Be:
About Meant to Be:
Meant to be or not meant to be . . . that is the question.
It’s one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall for the—gasp—wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be accident prone, but she’s queen of following rules and being prepared. That’s why she keeps a pencil sharpener in her purse and a pocket Shakespeare in her, well, pocket. And that’s also why she’s chosen Mark Bixford, her childhood crush, as her MTB (“meant to be”).
But this spring break, Julia’s rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she’s partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia starts receiving romantic texts . . . from an unknown number! Jason promises to help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London, leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love.
Because sometimes the things you least expect are the most meant to be.
Meant to Be releases from Delacorte Press on November 13, 2012, and it’s already getting some great buzz. Check out these blurbs from two of my favorite YA authors!
And now the fun part! First of all, take note of the synopsis of Meant to Be. Notice any big words in there? Those might come in handy as you move through the rest of the race and take the final quiz at the end (hint hint). I’ve contributed some swag and a $15 Amazon giftcard to the final prize pack, but that’s not all (said in my best game show host voice).
I’m also giving away a $25 Amazon giftcard right here, along with some snazzy Meant to Be postcards and bookmarks.
