Today, Julie Halpern is here with a this or that list courtesy of the Teen Book Scene blog tour for her book, Don't Stop Now. Thank you for being here, Julie! You can follow along with the tour here, or by clicking through the banner. Enjoy!
Hot Chocolate or Cappuccino: Hot chocolate. I have never had more than a sip of coffee. I drink hot chocolate on a regular basis.
Mystery or Romance: Romance. I like straightforward. Mysteries are too confusing. Kisses aren’t as much.
Vampire or Wizard: WIZARD
Sunrise or Sunset: Sunrise. I am a morning person.
Dolphins or Horses: Dolphins. They are the second most intelligent beings, according to Douglas Adams, after all.
Gothic or Victorian: Neither. Or both. Which is which again?
Sweet or Salty: Sweet. Always.
Male POV or Female POV: Female.
Swimming or Skiing: Swimming
Zoo or Aquarium: Neither. They both make me feel guilty.
Paper or Computer (to write): Paper. I write all my books by hand first.
Nancy Drew or Trixie Belden: This goes along with my mystery thing, so neither. Although as a librarian I liked giving them both to kids. Great covers.
Movie Theater or DVD at home: DVD at home for the lack of annoyances, but Movie Theater for the escapism and the excuse to eat crap.
Thanks for sharing these with us, Julie, and thank you so much for being here!
On the first day of Lillian’s summer-before-college, she gets a message on her cell from her sort-of friend, Penny. Not only has Penny faked her own kidnapping, but Lil is the only one who figures it out. She knows that Penny’s home life has been rough, and that her boyfriend may be abusive. Soon, Penny’s family, the local police, and even the FBI are grilling Lil, and she decides to head out to Oregon, where Penny has mentioned an acquaintance. And who better to road-trip across the country with than Lil’s BFF, Josh. But here’s the thing: Lil loves Josh. And Josh doesn’t want to “ruin” their amazing friendship.
Josh has a car and his dad’s credit card. Lil has her cellphone and a hunch about where Penny is hiding. There’s something else she needs to find: Are she and Josh meant to be together?
