We are so excited to participate in Rock Star Tours, Dear Cassie Blog Tour. Written as a spin-off of Lisa Burstein’s popular and realistic YA Contemporary book Pretty Amy, Dear Cassie catches up with Amy’s BFF and partner in prom night shenanigan’s Cassie as she embarks on a new and scary chapter in her life. We hope you enjoy our author spotlight and information on this exciting book. Don’t miss the Rafflecopter giveaway at the end of the post, where you can win your very own copy of Dear Cassie. And be sure to check out the other stops on this tour, which is going until April 2, 2013.
What if the last place you should fall in love is the first place that you do?
You’d think getting sent to Turning Pines Wilderness Camp for a month-long rehabilitation “retreat” and
being forced to re-live it in this journal would be the worst thing that’s ever happened to me.
You’d be wrong.
There’s the reason I was sent to Turning Pines in the first place: I got arrested. On prom night. With my two best friends, who I haven’t talked to since and probably never will again. And then there’s the real reason I was sent here. The thing I can’t talk about with the guy I can’t even think about.
What if the moment you’ve closed yourself off is the moment you start to break open? But there’s this guy here. Ben. And the more I swear he won’t—he can’t—the deeper under my skin he’s getting. After the thing that happened, I promised I’d never fall for another boy’s lies.
Lisa Burstein is a tea seller by day and a writer by night. She received her MFA in Creative Writing from the Inland Northwest Center for Writers at Eastern Washington University and is glad to finally have it be worth more than the paper it was printed on. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her very patient husband, a neurotic dog and two cats.
She wrote her first story when she was in second grade. It was a Thanksgiving tale from the point of view of the turkey from freezer to oven to plate. It was scandalous.
