Sweet Talk with the Sweet Sixteens: September 27th

Welcome to Week Thirty-Nine of Sweet Talk with the Sweet Sixteens! To see more details about Sweet Talk as well as previous posts, see the introduction post. Thanks to Charlene (Bookish Whimsy), for designing the banner and button for Sweet Talk.

Today, I'm featuring the authors and books publishing during the week of September 27th!

The Questions:

1. Describe your debut novel in sixteen words.
2. Pitch your book! For fans of _____, _____ meets _____, etc.
3. What are you working on now – is it related to your debut novel?

The Authors:

Paula Garner, Author of Phantom Limbs

1. A 16-year-old swimmer's childhood sweetheart reappears, forcing him to face the tragedy that drove them apart.

2. Wonder Years meets Paper Towns.

3. In my next YA contemporary, Relative Strangers, 18-year-old Jules discovers that part of her early childhood was spent in foster care. She sets out to find the family who cared for her, only to fall for her former foster brother. 

Both books are standalones, but those who read Relative Strangers closely will spot a cameo appearance of a character from Phantom Limbs!

  1. I got this book at BEA, and did not expect much (I am a cover snob). I can, however, say after reading this, that this book was a wonderful 5-star read full of so many feels. I mean, seriously, Otis <3!

  2. I don't know if I've heard of this one before or not, but it sounds pretty great!! :D

  3. Wonder Years meets Paper Towns? Yes, please!

  4. I'm looking forward to Phantom Limbs. I love the cover!

  5. Phantom Limbs sounds so good--I've read an excerpt and love it!

  6. I wasn't that interested in this book until I Read Nick's review of it! It actually sounds good. Plus, I'm very interested in the friendship that everyone talks about and the romance. I want to see how it's handled in this case :)
