Now, on with the reveals!
How Not to Disappear by Clare Furniss
About the book:
“Our memories are what make us who we are. Some are real. Some are made up. But they are the stories that tell us who we are. Without them we are nobody.”
Hattie’s summer isn’t going as planned. Her two best friends have abandoned her: Reuben has run off to Europe to “find himself” and Kat is in Edinburgh with her new girlfriend. Meanwhile Hattie is stuck babysitting her twin siblings and dealing with endless drama around her mother’s wedding.
And she’s also just discovered that she’s pregnant with Reuben’s baby.
Then Gloria, Hattie’s great-aunt who no one even knew existed, comes crashing into her life. Gloria’s fiercely independent, rather too fond of a gin sling and is in the early stages of dementia. Together the two of them set out on a road trip of self-discovery – Gloria to finally confront the secrets of her past before they are erased from her memory forever and Hattie to face the hard choices that will determine her future.
How Not to Disappear will be out on the shelves February 21, 2017!
Finding What’s Real by Emma Harrison
Finding What’s Real is the sequel to Emma Harrison’s Escaping Perfect!
About the book:
Cecilia Montgomery has been found. Two weeks after going on the run—and running away from a life that was carefully constructed for the past 10 years—Cecelia finds herself in the middle of a media firestorm. Before she can blink, Cecilia is on a morning news show with her parents, explaining away her two-week-long disappearance. Afterwards, Cecilia threatens to leave again, and mom drops the bomb. She plans to run for President. She’s going to announce in a few days. If she bails again, well, they do still have Jasper in custody on bogus “kidnapping” charges…
Suddenly Cecilia stuck yet again, forced into a public persona she had no part in creating. But her friends from Sweet Briar still have her back. After creating another clever diversion, Fiona, Britta and Jasper help smuggle her back to Sweet Briar. After thinking she actually might have gotten her way, a reporter accosts her asking, “Cecilia! What do you think of your mother setting up her campaign quarters her in Sweet Briar?” Yup. Her mother has found her yet again–and officially announces her candidacy for Presidency in the town square.
Meanwhile, Fiona becomes a bit obsessed with the fame she achieves from being Cecilia Montgomery’s best friend, and even Jasper gets caught up in the benefits of dating her. A million Instagram followers! Front page photos! Soon Cecilia starts to wonder if they want to hang out with her, or if they want to benefit from hanging out with her. All she wanted was a small, anonymous life, but now things seem to be spiraling out of control. To counterbalance it all, Cecilia accepts an invite to hang out with a crew vastly different from her own, and is exposed to a whole new world of partying, drinking and not caring.
As she grows more disappointed in the people who supposedly care about her, she gets pulled deeper and deeper into the party scene. Can Cecelia ever find her perfect ending, or will her escape prove to be more of a trap than she ever thought possible?
Finding What’s Real will be out on the shelves March 28, 2017!
