Today's a big day for Heather Davis, author of Never Cry Werewolf! Her new book, The Clearing, is out today!
Here's how Heather describes The Clearing:
This book is a time-travel, paranormal YA romance published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. It's the story of Amy, a girl who moves out to the country to recover from an abusive relationship. All she's looking for is some peace at her aunt's farm, but in a misty field at the back of the property, she finds Henry, a boy living in the endless summer of 1944, staving off a tragedy that could rip his family apart. Both teens must gain the courage to face what is meant to be, even if it means losing each other forever.
And here's a special hello to you, readergirlz!
I've got one signed copy to send to a lucky commenter on this post. Comment all week! I'll announce the winner on Saturday!
Heather's running her own celebration, with more free copies over at her blog that she shares with YA authors Dona Sarkar, Marley Gibson, Stephanie Hale, Tera Lynn Childs, Tina Ferraro, and Wendy Toliver: Books, Boys, Buzz!
So say a quick hi to Heather here, then go over there, increase your chances to win, and find out more about how you can help Heather help teens in need all week just by commenting over there.
Because so many teens don't have a place to go to recover from abuse like Amy (the main character in The Clearing), I will also be making a donation to Teen Feed in honor of The Clearing's release. Teen Feed is a wonderful organization in my city that serves homeless teens hot meals and helps them find the resources to get identification and counseling that will lead to employment, housing, and a new life. I will donate 50 cents for each unique commenter during the release week, up to $250.
I think it's amazing that Heather's using her release week to help teens--let's help her rock that idea!
