April: Tanya Lee Stone
A special note of thanks from author Tanya Lee Stone, author of A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl, one of this month's postergirlz recommended reads. (See the April issue of readergirlz for more!)
I'm so psyched that A BAD BOY CAN BE GOOD FOR A GIRL is a recommended read for April, and not just because it's National Poetry Month (all hail National Poetry Month!). This YA novel in verse first came out in 2006, but teen readers still write to me all the time and say stuff like: "Hey, how do you know exactly what my life is like?!"
Nothing makes an author more excited (well, almost nothing) than hearing from readers, and readergirlz readers are an especially special crew! So, if you've ever been played by a guy, gotten in over your head, or been the shoulder for a girlfriend who loved and lost, see what Josie, Nicolette, and Aviva have to say about the bad boy in this book -- and how the choices you make affect the path you'll take. Three girls, one guy -- who comes out on top?
And for you Judy Blume fans out there (and let's face it, who ISN'T a Judy Blume fan?), FOREVER has a cameo role in this story.
Here are a few "extras" for you -- a sneak peek excerpt, an interview with the ever-fabulous Cynsations, and a FREE Reading Guide.
