YA Outside the Lines and My Waiting on Wednesday

Filed under: Book Reviews, YA Outside the LInes

Today is my very first blog post as a member of YA Outside the Lines.  I am so excited to be a part of this group of amazing YA authors.  I would absolutely love it if you stopped over there and checked out the blog and my inaugural post. Kim at YA Outside the Lines.  But before you go, I thought I’d tell you what my Waiting on Wednesday book is…

Turns out that 13 year old, street smart Carley Connors is only afraid of one thing—Love. After a heart-breaking betrayal, Carley, a newly minted foster care child is placed with the Murphy family, who break down her walls. She learns the hard won lesson that she can love other people and, even more surprising, she can let them love her.

As if that wouldn’t have been enough to sell me on One for the Murphys, I had the pleasure of hanging out with Lynda Hunt Mullaly at the NY SCBWI Conference and she told me all about her book–the inside story to what she was thinking when she was writing it.  I honestly can’t wait to read this book. <3

What book are you waiting impatiently for?

  1. One for the Murphys sounds heartwarming and inspiring. 🙂

  2. Oh my God, Kim!! I’magine my shock in seeing this! Thanks so, so much. I am so honored that you have The Murphys here. I LOVED meeting you and hanging out in New York. I am SO excited about Touching the Surface–amaaaazing premise. And I love that cover story, too. 😉 Hope our paths meet again SOON! xo

  3. I’m also anxiously awaiting One for the Murphys and Touching the Surface. I also can’t wait to read Bitterblue.

    • Hmmm Bitterblue? I think I’ve heard of it–fill me in.
