If you like YA, Jen should be on your reading list. She's got strong female characters, smokin' hot tortured love interests, and a new twist on mythology in Half-Blood. And if you like a story about possibilities when things seem impossible--mixed with zombie hamsters--you'll love Cursed. Here's a little taste of what you can expect when it is released in 2012.
Dying sucks--and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.
Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he’s a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she’s more than interested. There’s just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she’s willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't?
2012 is going to be a very good year. Assuming the world doesn't end, of course. But if you got to go, what better way to do it than with great fiction? Congratulations, Jennifer! But beware the zombie hamsters.
