I’m delighted to be taking part in Joelle Anthony‘s Birthday Bash Book Trailer Launch Party today for her new YA novel, THE RIGHT & THE REAL (Putnam Books for Young Readers, April 26). Lucky me already got to read it, and it’s so good! Check out the blurb:
Kicked out for refusing to join a cult, seventeen-year-old Jamie must find a way to survive on her own.
Jamie should have known something was off about the church of the Right and the Real from the start, especially when the Teacher claimed he wasn’t just an ordinary spiritual leader, but Jesus Christ, himself. But she was too taken by Josh, the eldest son of one of the church’s disciples, and his all-American good looks. Josh is the most popular boy at school too, and the first boy outside the drama geeks to give Jamie a second look. But getting her Dad involved in a cult was not part of the plan when she started dating Josh. Neither was her dad’s marriage to the fanatic Mira, or getting kicked out, or seeing Josh in secret because the church has deemed her persona non grata.
Jamie’s life has completely fallen apart. Finding her way back won’t be easy, but when her Dad gets himself into serious trouble, will Jamie be ready to rescue him, and maybe even forgive him?
Sounds great, right? Just wait ’til you see the trailer (turn up the volume!)….
