Margie Gelbwasser is here today with an author this or that courtesy of the Teen Book Scene blog tour for her book, Pieces of Us. Thank you for being here today, Margie! You can follow along with the tour here, or by clicking through the banner. Enjoy!Pop or Coffee: Coffee, definitely. Can't start a day without it.
Rock or Rap: Bon Jovi, Springsteen, Beatles—rock all the way
Skirts or Pants: Jeans are my go to style
Lipstick or Lip gloss: Why wear it if you can't see it? :-)
Writing or reading: I'm going to cheat and say both. I need both to survive.
Toaster Strudel or Pop tarts: My health has been eh and I'm on a gluten free diet now, so unfortunately neither.
Tom boy, or girly girl: Girly tom boy maybe? I like to hang with the guys, but want to look cute doing it.
Serious and sweet, or carefree and reckless guys: As a teen, I was into the reckless, class clown type guys. As an adult, I'll go for the sweet, but they don't have to be serious all the time. :-)
Comedies, or Action movies: I like both, but not usually rom-coms or chick flicks.
Summer or Winter: Definitely summer. I'll take one snowfall so my kid can get the sledding out of his system, and then bring on the warmth.
Mountains or Beach: I like hiking a lot, and the ocean. If we're talking vacation spots, the beach will probably win.
Thank you for sharing your preferences with us, Margie; and thank you so much for being here today!
Two families. Four teens.
A summer full of secrets.
Every summer, hidden away in a lakeside community in upstate New York, four teens leave behind their old identities…and escape from their everyday lives.
Yet back in Philadelphia during the school year, Alex cannot suppress his anger at his father (who killed himself), his mother (whom he blames for it), and the girls who give it up too easily. His younger brother, Kyle, is angry too—at his abusive brother, and at their mother who doesn’t seem to care. Meanwhile, in suburban New Jersey, Katie plays the role of Miss Perfect while trying to forget the nightmare that changed her life. But Julie, her younger sister, sees Katie only as everything she’s not. And their mother will never let Julie forget it.
Up at the lake, they can be anything, anyone. Free. But then Katie’s secret gets out, forcing each of them to face reality—before it tears them to pieces.
