If you are a regular reader and have figured out the release pattern I use for my articles, then you are probably scratching your head as this one is a day early. The reason for my deviance from my normal schedule is that a good writer friend of mine, Bethany Lopez, is celebrating the cover release for her forthcoming novel XOXOXO. This new novel is the second book in Bethany Lopez’s contemporary Young Adult series which kicked off with the highly reviewed Ta Ta for Now.
I recommend you read the first book before you curl up on the couch to enjoy the beautifully written second helping. For those who have already read Ta Ta for Now, here is an extra treat as Bethany shared the synopsis with me and I want to share it with you. Okay she asked me to share it with you but if she had told me to keep it a secret I would have shared it anyway, I love you guys that much. Anyway, without any further rambling from me, here is the synopsis for XOXOXO:
Melissa has learned a lot since her freshman year began, but it isn’t over yet! Her world is about to change again with the birth of her new sibling, and she has to figure out how she will adjust to being the eldest of five kids. She, Jess, and Jimmy are inseparable, and she is having a fantastic time although she can’t help but miss Brian as she tries to learn how to deal with his relationship with Layla. Everything seems to be happening at once and that is when she is introduced to Ben Campbell, a senior at Dearborn High, who becomes an interesting distraction as he helps her deal with the new developments in her life.
The next big question is when is when can we our my hands on a copy XOXOXO? That is easy to answer as Bethany has given me the release date too. You can pick up your very own copy of XOXOXO on March 2, 2012.
