Young Adult Reads Make Great Holiday Gifts
Rumors and Whispers: Have You Heard?
By Lindsay Below
High school can be cruel. Every little detail of your lives seems to be floating around and if you’re the least bit different…well, then you’re the talk of the town!
Katie from my latest release, Head Over Hand-Bought Heels, has exactly that problem. The moment she changes her look from frumpy and bookish to semi-cool, her “friends” at school start to pick her apart. But even worse -- soon after, they move onto another target. And this girl, they tear apart because they think she might be a lesbian.
About then, Katie’s heart starts to thunder in her ears in that nervous way I’m sure you’ve all experienced at one point or another. Why? Because only days before, she went on a date with her friend Courtney. If her friends at school discover she’s a lesbian, will they exclude her, too?
Rumors, whether they’re true or false, can tear a person to the ground. They can make you feel alone and without friends.
All the same, I’m going to toss my own rumor into the hat: Head Over Hand-Bought Heels is now available in ebook! And in honor of its release, I’m hosting a contest. Want to win the book? All you have to do is comment here or at any other of my blog tour stops (the list can be found at my website at www.lbelow.net/lindsaybelow) by December 17th at 11:59PM EST. I’ll be announcing the winner on my site, so be sure to check back.
And that’s one rumor, I’ll encourage you to spread! ;)
