On to the reveal!
Hey you guys! So... I've been really quiet as far as the blog and reading are concerned. I have no idea why, but I hope that things pick up again soon. I guess it wasn't a total fail, though. I got to do a fair amount of bookish things, just not really the typical bookish things. I had a weekend of awesomeness at the Tucson Festival of Books. I got to meet Lois Lowry, Cornelia Funke and Isaac Marion. I also got to see Shelley Coriell again and meet Morgan Rhodes. THEN I got to get my books by all these authors signed! It was a little overwhelming at first, and I didn't get to see as many authors as I would have liked, but I still had an absolute blast. Well, guess it's time to get this wrap-up, um, wrapped up!
This Side of Salvation is officially out in the world! I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this early and let me tell you, this book is AMAZING! So check out some fun stuff Jeri has going on for the launch of her newest novel, including giveaways, interviews and more. Happy reading!

Everyone mourns differently. When his older brother was killed, David got angry. As in, fist-meets-someone-else’s-face furious. But his parents? They got religious. David’s still figuring out his relationship with a higher power, but there’s one thing he does know for sure: The closer he gets to new-girl Bailey, the better, brighter, happier, more he feels.
Then his parents start cutting all their worldly ties in to prepare for the Rush, the divine moment when the faithful will be whisked off to Heaven…and they want David to do the same. David’s torn. There’s a big difference between living in the moment and giving up his best friend, varsity baseball, and Bailey—especially Bailey—in hope of salvation.
But when he comes home late from prom, and late for the Rush, to find that his parents have vanished, David is in more trouble than he ever could have imagined…
