SCAVENGER HUNT POST
Today, I am hosting the fabulous Jaye Robin Brown
on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt! Not only is JRo one of my CPs, she also another North Carolina author, so I have the good fortune of seeing her face to face at conferences and other shin-digs. I love her writing, and I think I’ve dreamed about NO PLACE TO FALL at least 23
times since I first read an early draft of it.
Jaye Robin Brown, or Jro to her friends, lives and writes in the mountains north of Asheville, North Carolina. She is fond of horses, dogs, the absurd and the ironic. When not writing, you can find her in the art room of the high school where she teaches.Her debut young adult novel, NO PLACE TO FALL, comes out in the fall of 2014 from Harper Teen. It’s about dreams, singing, friendship, love, betrayal, family, and mistakes. It’s also a love song to small town girls and mountain music, both of which shape the area that Jaye now calls home.
Amber Vaughn is a good girl. She sings solos at church, babysits her nephew after school, and spends every Friday night hanging out at her best friend Devon’s house. It’s only when Amber goes exploring in the woods near her home, singing camp songs with the hikers she meets on the Appalachian Trail, that she feels free—and when the bigger world feels just a little bit more in reach.
When Amber learns about an audition at the North Carolina School of the Arts, she decides that her dream—to sing on bigger stages—could also be her ticket to a new life. Devon’s older (and unavailable) brother, Will, helps Amber prepare for her one chance to try out for the hypercompetitive arts school. But the more time Will and Amber spend together, the more complicated their relationship becomes . . . and Amber starts to wonder if she’s such a good girl, after all.Then, in an afternoon, the bottom drops out of her family’s world—and Amber is faced with an impossible choice between her promise as an artist and the people she loves. Amber always thought she knew what a good girl would do. But between “right” and “wrong,” there’s a whole world of possibilities.
LOVE it! And don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of signed books by me, Jaye Robin Brown
, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 23.
Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the blue team
and you’ll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!
