each day i will be featuring two authors from the tour, with my quickie-two questions. today’s guests are Shari Green & Janet Gurtler! also, don’t forget to enter the tour-wide contest at the bottom of the post!










1. Best book you read in 2014?

Only one?! *begs to choose at least two* GLORY O’BRIEN’S HISTORY OF THE FUTURE, by A.S. King, and THE STRANGE AND BEAUTIFUL SORROWS OF AVA LAVENDER, by Leslye Walton.

2. What are you most excited for in 2015?

So many books! But this time I’ll stick to the rules and pick just one… ONE THING STOLEN, by Beth Kephart.





Walking in the footsteps of a dead girl isn’t easy. After her social life flatlines, seventeen-year-old Anna Richards wants  nothing more than to lie low at her new school. But it seems Anna looks an awful lot like Chelsea, the sweet and popular  girl who recently died, and Anna finds herself stepping into the void created by Chelsea’s absence. Anna is determined to  make the awkward situation work in her favor, because Chelsea didn’t just leave a spot open with the in-crowd; she also  left  a gorgeous—and now available—boyfriend. But it turns out that following Chelsea might be a lot more complicated  than  Anna expected.








Shari Green writes Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction and occasionally masquerades as a poet. When  she’s not glued to  her laptop, she can often be found wandering in a blissful daze on the beach near her  home on Vancouver Island, BC. Visit  her online at











1 Best book you read in 2014?

I read a lot of great books. One that stands out is, Gone Girl.

2. What are you most excited for in 2015?

So many great YA Contemporary books coming out. I’m especially excited for Joy Preble’s new book, Finding Paris.


The truth about us

 The truth is that Jess knows she screwed up.

 She’s made mistakes, betrayed her best friend, and now she’s paying for it. Her dad is making her spend the whole  summer volunteering at the local soup kitchen.

 The truth is she wishes she was the care-free party-girl everyone thinks she is.

 She pretends it’s all fine. That her “perfect” family is fine. But it’s not. And no one notices the lie…until she meets Flynn.  He’s the only one who really sees her. The only one who listens.

 The truth is that Jess is falling apart – and no one seems to care.

 But Flynn is the definition of “the wrong side of the tracks.” When Jess’s parents look at him they only see the differences-  not how much they need each other. They don’t get that the person who shouldn’t fit in your world… might just be the one  to make you feel like you belong.
