Today I'm bringing you a small update regarding Petty Little Lives, my YA Contemporary that comes out August 18th. Last time I couldn't offer you much information but this time I want to show you the blurb which I've received just this morning. I think it sounds really nice, much better then the one I would have written.
But, read it yourself:
The only thing cousins Sapphire Hope and Roxanna Revolution have in common is they don’t want to spend the summer at their aunt’s Iowa farm.
Hope is an entitled L.A. rich-girl…
Spoiled by her Oscar-winning mother and a CEO father, Hope thrives on the lifestyle of a jet-setting socialite and aspiring model. She has no interest in rural life, or the strange cousin who seems to want to be her friend. About the only thing even remotely interesting about the farm is the good-looking intern at her aunt’s veterinary clinic, Dawn Matthews. He might do as a summer distraction.
Roxanna is a sensitive loner…
She spends her time playing guitar and posting videos for her YouTube subscribers, but at least at her aunt’s, nobody knows what she’s hiding. Since her secret drove her boyfriend away, she could use a few friends, but Sapphire clearly isn’t interested—and even less so when Dawn prefers Roxanna’s company over hers.
When Roxanna’s secret comes out, Sapphire, Roxanna, and their friends are forced to view their lives from a new perspective and face choices they never thought they’d have to make.
Can friendship and new love help them overcome physical and emotional challenges and learn what’s really important? Or will old habits and attitudes refuse to die?
So, what do you think? It's nice isn't it? Well, I hope you like it and are looking forward to the release next month just like I am. Can you believe it, only one month and nine more days!
Also I've heard that maybe soonish the cover will be done, too. I am super excited to see how it will look like and cannot wait to share it with you guys. I will set up a goodreads page sometime soon so you'll all be able to add it to your 'to-read' lists.
Anyway, that's it for now. Tell me what you think about the blurb in the comments below (you don't need a google+ account for it) or tweet me @Alice_Reeds
