Before I get to the tweet tales, let’s do a cover reveal! Medeia Sharif is one of the most prolific writers I know. She released a book
earlier this summer, and now she has another one coming out in December. I’m honored to be participating in the reveal of this haunting cover:
VITAMINS AND DEATH by Medeia Sharif
YA Contemporary, Prizm Books
Release Date December 10, 2014
Deidra Battle wants nothing more than to be invisible. After her mother, a public school teacher, engages in an embarrassing teacher-student affair at Lincoln High, they relocate to a different neighborhood and school. Being her mother’s briefcase, Deidra joins her mother at her new workplace, Hodge High.
Since her mother has reverted to her maiden name and changed her appearance, Deidra thinks no one will figure out they’re the Battles from recent news and that they’re safe. Neither of them is. Hodge brings a fresh set of bullies who discover details about the scandal that changed her life.
Feeling trapped at home with an emotionally abusive, pill-addicted mother and at school with hostile classmates who attempt to assault and blackmail her, Deidra yearns for freedom, even if she has to act out of character and hurt others in the process. Freedom comes at a price.
Whew, that definitely sounds like some heavy stuff poor Deidra must deal with – I can’t wait to read what happens!
10/8 - Magician's illustrious
career ends with slip of assistant's knife. Sleight of hand is tough when down 3 fingers. Now assistant is the star.
10/9 - She chokes down dog food, imagining it's viands
from before the bombs. After 4 months of surviving, it's not even worst thing she's eaten.
10/10 - Ty's tomfoolery
in class gets him in trouble, but it always makes Jen smile. From the shouting he hears next door, he knows she needs it.
10/11 - His rejection is a shard
of glass to her heart. Wanting him to feel the same pain, she breaks a window and shoves a piece through his chest.
10/12 - He often practices his gormless
expression. People are more likely to talk around a slow janitor, so he's made millions selling secrets.
10/13 - Her doctor said she's sterile. Now all she does is watch episodes of the fecund
Duggar family, crying and screaming about the injustice.
10/14 - The red garnitures
look like blood splashed around the waiting room,making him extra nervous since the dentist is about to murder his mouth.
