What great books did you hear about/discover this past week? Share with us your FRIDAY FINDS!
This is always an exciting time for writers (though I wouldn’t yet know). The idea for SEND was sparked from a suggestion to become more familiar with social media, but became the story of a teenage boy who, with one click of the send button on a cell phone, ends one life and ruins several others. I have yet to read Patty’s novel, but after reading the first chapter on amazon, it’s obvious that SEND is a YA novel I won’t NOT be reading for long!
Synopsis: All Dan wants for his senior year is to be invisible. This is his last chance at a semi–normal life. Nobody here knows who he is. Or what he’s done. But on his first day at school, instead of turning away like everyone else, Dan breaks up a fight. Because Dan knows what it’s like to be terrorized by a bully—he used to be one.
Now the whole school thinks he’s some kind of hero—except Julie. She looks at him like she knows he has a secret. Like she knows his name isn’t really Daniel…
Random Fact: Patty and I met on YALITCHAT, a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the reading, writing, and publishing of young adult literature.

FRIDAY FINDS is where you share the book titles you discovered or heard about during the past week. These can be books you were told about, books you discovered while browsing blogs/bookstores online, or books that you actually purchased. MOST of the books MizB shares in her Friday Finds are titles that she discovered somewhere online — not actually books she’s purchased. [See Archives]
