Things are really going nuts around here, what with Cavendish‘s release date rapidly approaching. Less than three weeks now (she thinks, gnawing her fingernails to the quick after having weird stress dreams in which aliens disguised as Joan Allen crashed her wedding, which was for some reason held in her grandmother’s dining room)!
LESS THAN THREE WEEKS.
I’m so, so excited about everything coming up. Lots of fun Cavendish activities and giveaways on the horizon, including a super fun blog tour that I can’t wait to tell you about!
This weekend, however, I’m going out of town and getting some good work done, so while I’m gone, I leave you with a giveaway (yes, another one; the awesome books, they just keep coming to me!) of Speechless, a YA contemporary and the second novel by my wonderful agent sister, Hannah Harrington! And — how cool is this? — Speechless and Cavendish share book birthdays! August 28! Hollaaaaa!
Everyone knows that Chelsea Knot can’t keep a secret.
Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast—and nearly got someone killed.
Now Chelsea has taken a vow of silence—to learn to keep her mouth shut, and to stop hurting anyone else. And if she thinks keeping secrets is hard, not speaking up when she’s ignored, ridiculed and even attacked is worse.
But there’s strength in silence, and in the new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way—people she never noticed before; a boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive what she’s done. If only she can forgive herself.
Sounds so good, right?! I adore that striking, minimalistic cover — so different from what you usually see on the YA shelves! And if you’ve read Hannah’s debut, Saving June, you know how smart, funny, and heart-wrenching her writing is.
In short, you totally want this book. And I’m going to give you a copy!
