I think I was trying to say "deux" in French, but doo is much funnier. To me, anyway. Since my last contest attempt was so lame, I'm making a sequel. And you're all invited! Once again, I am offering you, my loyal blog readers, a chance to win a galley (that's pre-published to you and me, Rusty) of my upcoming YA novel, Into the Wild Nerd Yonder. The story:
It's Jessie's sophomore year of high school. A self-professed "mathlete," she isn't sure where she belongs. Her two best friends have transformed themselves into punks and one of them is going after her longtime crush. Her beloved older brother will soon leave for college (and in the meantime has shaved off his mohawk and started dating...the prom Princess!)...
Things are changing fast. Jessie needs new friends. And her quest is a hilarious tour through high school clique-dom, with a surprising stop along the way--the Dungeons and Dragons crowd, who out-nerd everyone. Will hanging out with them make her a nerd, too? And could she really be crushing on a guy with too-short pants and too-white gym shoes?
If you go into the wild nerd yonder, can you ever come back?
If you'd like to be entered, make a comment about the new book cover, or the weather, or So You Think You Can Dance, or just stop by and say hello. Your name will be entered into a hat that I will draw from at the end of next week. The 12th. This book is for 13 years-old and up, btw. Good luck! May the best nerd win.
