Giveaway: Touching the Surface and Send Me a Sign

23 May

Each year on the first Saturday in May, my local school district hosts the Hudson Children’s Book Festival, a wonderful event that brings young readers together with outstanding authors and illustrators. This year, I had the pleasure of hanging out with booth buddies Kimberly Sabatini (who I first met a couple years back at a Hudson Valley YA Society event) and Tiffany Schmidt, who are both so friendly that I decided to buy copies of their debut novels to share with one lucky visitor to Love YA Lit.


Kimberly’s debut novel, Touching the Surface, is about a young woman who finds herself dead for the third time and realizes that before she can move on to the great beyond she’ll have to reconcile issues with her past life. (Oh yeah, and there’s a love triangle and the cover is super pretty.)

Tiffany’s debut novel, Send Me a Sign, is about a popular teenager who is diagnosed with Leukemia during the summer break before senior year and decides to keep her illness a secret from her friends and classmates. She confides in her longtime neighbor and best friend, Gyver, but the sicker she gets, the harder it gets to keep her secret from the rest of the world. (Also a love triangle here and a lovely cover as well.)

    I’m a hopeless romantic. ‘Send Me a Sign’ is my cup of tea. Can’t wait to read & will be looking out in the future (:

      I wonder if there is such a thing as a hopeful romantic? What would that look like exactly? Anyway, sounds like Send Me a Sign is a good match for you – happy reading!

      The HCBF is fantastic. I like the mix of picture book author and illustrators on up through YA. And that it’s basically in my backyard, that’s pretty sweet as well. Glad to reconnect with you!

    The best book I’ve read this year was probably The Winner’s Curse. What a great event! Thanks for the chance.

    hmmm…I’ve read a lot good books this year. One of my favorites was Cress by Marissa Meyer.

      I loved Cress, though I forgot while reading it that there will be a fourth book and was thinking it was the final book in the series the whole time. I was thus surprised that the ending wasn’t tidier. I figured it out pretty quickly. 🙂
