Posted 06/01/2015 by alicemarvels in Author Guest Post
We’re so excited to welcome Anna Banks to the blog on her blog tour for Joyride! It’s not often you see an author telling people to NOT read their book, and today Anna shares 5 types of people who shouldn’t bother reading Joyride. Provided none of these apply to you, make sure to enter the giveaway to win your own copy of Joyride at the bottom of the post!
People who don’t get sarcasm. If you’re not fluent in the language, this book isn’t for you. I’m not saying I don’t want you to read it. I’m just saying I don’t want you to read it.
People who believe immigrants aren’t people. Tell that to your ancestors. Kthxbye.
People who think pranks are childish. Your mom is childish. And her mom. So.
People who don’t read. Because there are words in it, and stuff.
People who think this book is about mermaids. The only fishtails in here are the ones Arden makes in the mud with his truck.
A popular guy and a shy girl with a secret become unlikely accomplices for midnight pranking, and are soon in over their heads—with the law and with each other—in this sparkling standalone from NYT-bestselling author Anna Banks.
It’s been years since Carly Vega’s parents were deported. She lives with her brother, studies hard, and works at a convenience store to contribute to getting her parents back from Mexico.
Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He dated popular blondes and had fun with his older sister, Amber. But now Amber’s dead, and Arden blames his father, the town sheriff who wouldn’t acknowledge Amber’s mental illness. Arden refuses to fulfill whatever his conservative father expects.
All Carly wants is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to NOT do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realize they’ve been living according to others. Carly and Arden’s journey toward their true hearts—and one another—is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh.
Anna Banks is a young adult author whose primary goal is to entertain smart, funny gals like herself. You can expect her works to be centered around a love story, freckled with humor, and seasoned with sarcasm.
