About the book Excerpt Becca “Raincoat or umbrella?” Ethan asks. “I don’t get the question.” “When it rains, would you rather have a raincoat or an umbrella? Assuming you could only have one.” “Raincoat,” I say, not even needing to think about it. “I like the feel of rain on my face. But being in soaking wet clothes isn’t fun. And even with an umbrella, your clothes still end up getting wet. So raincoat. Definitely. Which would you pick? Raincoat or umbrella?” “Neither. I don’t mind if I get soaked in the rain, as long as I’m not wearing jeans. Wet jeans suck.” “Totally. So you’re saying if you were wearing jeans, you’d pick the raincoat.” “Correct. Okay, next question. Chocolate or fruity? […]

Hiya! Today, Rookie Mistake by Alice Ward was released into the world, and we have the first chapter for you to try!!! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Chapter 1 Calvin I’d dreamed of this day, for how long I couldn’t even remember. I knew I was a boy, maybe seven, watching the New York Yankees play against… who was it? I couldn’t recall, but I remembered the excitement that soared through my grandfather’s living room that afternoon. My pops, grandfather, and I were all rooting them on. The way my pops screamed at the TV, you would have thought he was right there in the action, hoping to get their attention as he yelled for them to run! When they won, he grabbed me by the waist and lifted me high in the air. “You’re a man […]
