Okay, I kinda sorta heart Lizzy Charles, and not just because we’re agent-sisters. Seriously, if it’s in the evening and I haven’t chatted with her that day, I feel a little bit bereft. She’s a phenomenal person, and writes the sweetest YA stories! I seriously heart her and her work, and couldn’t be prouder of her at this moment. I’m so tickled pink to get to share with you her cover of her debut novel!!!
So congrats, Lizzy, your cover is GORGEOUS!!!
is ready for the perfect summer: lazy days at the pool, invitations to the most
exclusive parties, and romantic dates with her hot new boyfriend. That is,
until she lands in trouble one too many times and her parents issue the
ultimate punishment: a summer job. Suddenly, the summer can’t end fast enough.
the job is painting houses with Justin, the most popular, egotistical guy in
school. Spending all summer with Justin might be other girls’ dreams, but
definitely not Lucy’s. After all, Justin is cocky, annoying, and a jerk. So
what if he’s the most beautiful jerk Lucy’s ever seen? Or that his grin makes
her forget she’s mad at the world? Or that maybe, just maybe, there’s more to Justin
than Lucy realizes. Only one thing is certain: it won’t be the summer she
wanted, but it might be exactly the one she needs.
to raise her two spunky toddlers or caring for premature and sick babies as a
neonatal intensive care nurse, she’s in a quiet corner writing or snuggled up
with a novel and a few squares of dark chocolate. Black tea keeps her constant
and she loves guacamole. She married her high school sweet heart, a
heart-melting musician, so it’s no surprise she’s fallen in love with writing
contemporary YA romance novels.
