Greetings friends, fans, and family,
I am thrilled to tell you that my new book OVER YOU has finally been released into the world! I am very proud of this book, and I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
OVER YOU is the gritty, realistic story of an obsessive teen friendship that fractures over one intense summer. School Library Journal called it “compelling and moving,” and Publishers Weekly called it “sharp and memorable.” Here’s the gist:
Max would follow Sadie anywhere, so when Sadie decides to ditch her problems and escape to Nebraska for the summer, it’s only natural for Max to go along. Max is Sadie’s confidante, her protector, and her best friend. This summer will be all about them. This summer will be perfect.
And then they meet Dylan. Dylan is dark, dangerous, and intoxicating, and he awakens something in Max that she never knew existed. No matter how much she wants to, she can’t back away from him.
But Sadie has her own intensity, and has never allowed Max to become close with anyone else. Max doesn’t know who she is without Sadie, but she’d better start learning. Because if she doesn’t make a decision—about Dylan, about Sadie, about herself—it’s going to be made for her.
Something you may be surprised to find out is that the first week a book is on sale is the best time to purchase it. So if you’re thinking of buying it, now’s a great time! If your local independent bookstore doesn’t have it, please request that they order it. Or of course you can always buy it at IndieBound, Simon & Schuster, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other major retailers.
If you’re in the Bay Area, might I suggest waiting to buy your copy of OVER YOU at my book release event: 3:00 pm, Sunday, June 23, at Diesel Books in Oakland (5433 College Avenue). I plan to read a little from the book and do a short Q&A and signing. (And you’ll probably catch a glimpse of Miss Elouise Madrone Reed Relph, the tiny new addition to my family.)
Thank you everyone for your continued support over the years. It is truly a gift to have the opportunity to share my stories with you.
