Win an ARC of ABC’S!
Last week I received 4 Advanced Reader Copies of my January 13, 2009 release, THE ABC’S OF KISSING BOYS. (Yay!) Just 4...but Kelly’s been kind enough to pass on her copy and let me offer it up to a YA Fresh reader.
Leave a comment telling us what you think of the cover and/or the story, and you’ll automatically be entered to win. The contest will close at 6 pm PST this Sunday, June 22, following which I will chose and announce the winner.
So, about the cover...those of you who know my books are going to be surprised. Very surprised. Gone is the playful cartoon look, and in its place, a close-up photo. The reason for the change is that Random House wants to attract a broader, older range of teens for this book. Great, huh? This is eye-catching, too!
About the book, well, I re-read it last weekend. And I realize I’m being totally immodest, but I actually thought it was a fun read. I not only liked the way it turned out, I even laughed a few times at my own stupid jokes!
Here is the back page blurb:
Parker has played soccer practically since she could walk. Now she’s a high school junior and a shoo-in for Varsity. I mean, the coach moves everyone up from JV to Varsity. It’s just what happens.
But that’s not what happens.
This year Coach Hartley moved up every JV player but two--and Parker was half of that unfortunate equation.
School starts, and she’s stuck with (horror of horrors) the freshman, and her love of the game is seriously beginning to fail. Worse? The friends her own age are showing signs of cutting her loose, and now the freshman guy across the street is looking like her only companion.
But Parker’s determined to get her life back. She concocts the perfect plan to get on Varsity. The only catch? She has to trick her way into the annual kissing booth, then pull a stunt crazier than she could ever possibly dream up on her own. Only the kissing booth kiss has to look real. And Parker is less than experienced in playing on that sort of field.
She knows that practice makes perfect, now she just has to find the right kind of coach...
