Blog series where I talk about the ABNA experience, and the highs and lows of publishing.
What the experts say about Lost in Thought, 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Finalist...
Publishers Weekly: "Compelling and solid, this paranormal thriller has it all: love, murder, intrigue, mind games, and a bit of mystery."
Gayle Forman, NYT Bestselling Author of If I Stay: "...my pick for the winner, a fantastic novel trying to break free.... The boarding school setting is a lot of fun, and the chemistry with Carter snaps... Lainey and Carter begin exploring the provenance of Lainey’s Legacy, the true extent of her powers, and just how those powers might be manipulated, the book starts to pick up momentum, leading to an action-packed ending with a twist that will leave readers clamoring for the next installment."
Jennifer Besser, Vice President and Publisher of G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers: "...the novel is full of characters teen readers will enjoy spending time with, especially Lainey’s vivacious roommate, Amy, and Carter, the mysterious and swoon-worthy love interest... a nice dose of romance, mystery, and supernatural thrills keeps the pages turning."
*Publishers Weekly is an independent organization and the review was written based on a manuscript version of the book.
