The Sound of Us by Julie Hammerle Release Date: June 7th 2016 Entangled Teen   Summary:  Kiki Nichols might not survive music camp. She’s put her TV-loving, nerdy self aside for one summer to prove she’s got what it takes: she can be cool enough to make friends, she can earn that music scholarship, and she can get into Krause University’s music program. Except camp has rigid conduct rules—which means her thrilling late-night jam session with the hot drummer can’t happen again, even though they love all the same TV shows, and fifteen minutes making music with him meant more than…

Alexis Dubois just got caught shoplifting a cheap tube of lipstick at the local SmartMart. She doesn’t know what’s worse—disappointing her overbearing beauty-pageant-obsessed mother for the zillionth time…or her punishment.

Coupon cutters, jerk customers, and learning exactly…

Why Author Tellulah Darling Writes YA Romantic Comedy–with a Giveaway! (A Date of God-Like Proportions book blitz)

My first sucky kiss, or the reason why I write YA romantic comedy: I don’t actually remember my first kiss. And believe me, it’s not because there was such a variety of them in my teen years that it just got lost in the shuffle. Which, sigh, is probably another reason I write YA romantic comedy. At least my characters fare better than I did. While I may not remember my actual first kiss, the first one I do remember is forever burned in my brain. I was fifteen years old and a cute boy (cute being relative to my…

What I’m Reading: Week in Review (9-13-13)

(Click on the image above to find out 10 fun facts about Friday the 13th–my favorite is that paraskevidekatriaphobia means fear of Friday the 13th. I’m totally going to use that for ELA class next week, when we’re talking about 50-cent words. It’s going to be one of mine!) Once again, school interferes with my reading, darn it. Still, I managed to be fairly productive, in spite of the tragedy that struck on Monday. The screen on my Kindle Fire cracked! It was horrible! I’m still not sure when/how exactly it happened, but it was found on the (hardwood) floor of my bedroom,…
