Waking up in the future never was cooler...

It you haven't read Bev Katz Rosenbaum's I Was A Teenage Popsicle, you're missing out on fun characters, a cool world ten years into the future, and a fresh voice!

Sixteen-year-old Floe Ryan and her parents had caught a rare disease and in order to save their lives they were frozen--well, "vitrified"--until a cure could be discovered. Except Floe is awakened and cured along with her teen crush, Taz--without her parents.

Floe has to move in with her now-older-than-her younger sister who has issues, and learn to adjust to a newly developed world, with creative inventions such as all-in-ones, Skedpets, and hoverblades.

Sure, she can handle it until her parents are thawed, even if she has to attend a school where Taz won't be. Only one problem...the center where her parents are still frozen might close and she will be stuck without them!

Check out this fresh YA debut and find out the lengths one teenager will go to get her old life back with her where it belongs--in the future!

I just read this book last month, and liked it so much that I passed it along to a friend. It's fast-paced and has that magic blend of fun and emotion that keeps the pages turning. Great read!
