Whatever Wednesday: New Year, New Look, New Name

January 18th, 2012

Hey, everyone!

I’m so excited to share with you my latest PRETTYtough release, MAKING WAVES. Notice the new look and the new name. :)

It’s summer break for the girls at Beachwood Academy and that means sun, surf, and sensational escapades at the Beachwood Country Club. Abby, a rising sophomore, is so excited to have gotten a last-minute gig as a lifeguard, especially because jobs are usually reserved for club members.

Abby desperately wants to win the annual lifeguarding competition, and with it a college scholarship. But when she arrives for her first day on the job, she finds herself face-to-face with some serious club member attitude. And there’s an even bigger surprise waiting for her: the gorge senior boy she’s been pining over ever since they met at a swimming competition earlier this year.

Can Abby break through the rules, regs, and mean girls to be the first-ever non-club member to win the summertime lifeguarding competition and maybe even the boy of her dreams?

MAKING WAVES and my new pseudonym will drop this April. Although I love all of my books, MAKING WAVES was an absolute blast to write. In fact, Abby is tied with Maggie (a character from FIFTEEN LOVE) for top honors as my all-time favorite PRETTYtough girl. :)

How about you? What’s new?

Happy Wednesday!
