I signed a contract for my first YA contemporary novel! It's coming out sometime in the next few months and will be available through Deseret Book distributors. I'm so excited to finally be getting this book out. It's been in the works for a really long time. As in maybe I might have written a version of the opening when I was in high school.
So ten-ish years later, I got this in my email:
I could do a happy dance about this cover. Perfect.
Here's a bit about the book:
When Supermom joins Dad on his latest project, sixteen-year-old Morgan is left with her aunt. Instead of dating the cute boy from her high school track team, Morgan will spend the summer in a small town near Kanab, Utah, five hours from home and all of her friends. Her plan is to keep a sane distance between herself and her aunt’s six boys. What Morgan doesn’t expect is being attracted to the neighbor kid who hangs out with her cousins. How can she like two guys at the same time?
Just when her life couldn’t get more messed up, Morgan stumbles across an abandoned house and learns she lived there when she was small. The house and its secrets haunt her—it turns out she’s been dreaming about the place for years. All she wants is to hold onto what she loves. But as the summer passes, she wonders if she’s going to lose everything.
