After all the doom and gloom you’ve read about the end of the world, why not snuggle up with a light-hearted, funny, exciting read? That’s what Lisa Burstein is offering readers with her debut novel, Pretty Amy, due out on May 15, 2012. I am honored to be one of the bloggers selected to help promote the COVER REVEAL for Pretty Amy, and so without further ado…
Amy is fine living in the shadows of beautiful Lila and uber-cool Cassie, because at least she’s somewhat beautiful and uber-cool by association. But when their dates stand them up for prom, and the girls take matters into their own hands -earning them a night in jail outfitted in satin, stilettos, and Spanx- Amy discovers even a prom spent in handcuffs might be better than the humiliating “rehabilitation techniques” now filling up her summer. Worse, with Lila and Cassie parentally banned, Amy feels like she has nothing – like she is nothing.
Navigating unlikely alliances with her new coworker, two very different boys, and possibly even her parents, Amy struggles to decide if it’s worth being a best friend when it makes you a public enemy. Bringing readers along on an often hilarious and heartwarming journey, Amy finds that maybe getting a life only happens once you think your life is over.
Doesn’t this sound like a really FUN read?! I have a confession: I never went to prom. More to the point, my tiny Christian private school didn’t have one, so I’m a bit jealous of those who had one. I may just have to live vicariously through Pretty Amy 🙂
For you bloggers and readers out there, in addition to the Pretty Amy cover reveal, Entangled Publishing will be hosting a Worst Prom Photo contest in the weeks leading up to the release on May 15, 2012. So make sure to dust off your old prom photos -the more tulle, bows, and big hair the better- and watch Lisa’s site, http://www.lisaburstein.com, for details on how to submit/enter to win a beauty package.
Entangled Publishing and Lisa Burstein shared a picture of Lisa from her junior prom. Take a look at this flashback!
Lisa Burstein is a tea seller by day and a writer by night. She wrote her first story when she was in second grade. It was a Thanksgiving tale from the point of view of the turkey from freezer to oven to plate. It was scandalous.
She was a lot like Amy when she was in high school.
She is still a lot like Amy.
