Welcome to my post and giveaway for the Romance Is In the Air Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Rachael Anderson
I am featuring my series The Glister Journals which, to be honest, is more about relationships in general and more on the literature side than strictly YA or romance. But for me it is a romance first and foremost, though there are only hints and glimpses of it in the first novel Bronze. Bronze’s birthday (first published) is Valentines Day, so this seemed very appropriate! And yes, there is real (clean) romance in the remaining books in the series. The second book will be released this year.
“We all make assumptions every day. Some more important than others. Some more damaging than others. And things, very often, are not at all what they seem.”
Allison Anderson is a normal but not exactly average fourteen year old girl. She knows she’s a little different, but it hadn’t bothered her too much—until now. Moving away from everything she has ever known to a new house, new neighborhood, and new school is bad enough, but it’s her first year of high school too. She’s more aware of her social and physical limitations than ever before. And then there are the new people she meets: the tough-looking girl in her home room; the cute but dangerous-looking boy she first saw before school even started; the quiet, older girl who keeps to herself; the sullen-looking, seemingly isolated junior that doesn’t seem to trust or like her at all. Can they be friends? She’s been the victim of bullying in the past; can she trust them? While her peaceful new home only amplifies her doubts, she begins to learn that things are not always what they seem. Her world is turned upside-down by these and other new friends, two-legged and otherwise. Life soon becomes more complicated, and much more interesting!
