Giveaway: The Daughters by Joanna Philbin

I just finished reading The Daughters, Joanna Philbin's debut novel (yes, she's Regis Philbin's daughter), and she can write!  I was impressed, immediately sucked in, and I read the novel on a Saturday afternoon on my beachfront balcony (thank you, Emerald Coast Writers Conference!).

Fourteen-year-old Lizzie Summers always expects fawning photographers and adoring fans to surround her gorgeous supermodel mother.  But when Lizzie is approached by a fashion photographer who believes that she’s “the new face of beauty,” Lizzie surprises herself and her family by becoming the newest Summers woman to capture the media’s spotlight.  

In this debut young adult series tailored for younger teens, author Joanna Philbin explores what it’s really like to grow up in the thick of the celebrity world. As Lizzie and her two best friends (and fellow daughters-of-celebrities) juggle normal high school events with glamorous family functions, they discover the pitfalls of fame and the importance of friendship.






CONTEST: One lucky commenter will win a brand new copy of the ARC, the first in a great new YA series.  Gossip Girl fans, this one's for you. Be sure to include your email address so I know how to contact you.

I'm already a follower, so YAY!

(Your blog usually freaks me out because it's the same layout as mine and sometimes I forget which window is open to which. Then I'm left to wonder when I made all these posts I don't remember making ;-P )

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
