Welcome to Summer Spotlight! Lately I've gotten a number of requests through email from authors to read their books. While I'm always happy to receive those emails, it isn't very often I get to accept the books for review. Hence, I've created Summer Spotlight. If there's a book or author I feel deserves more attention than I'm currently able to give them/it, I'll post it. This is to promote the books and authors and gather opinions from readers. I hope we can all have fun and enjoy this new (intermittent) feature!
Our second book in the Summer Spotlight series, Bold by Julia Swift and Andrew Landis.
Sasha, a shy, 15-year-old girl who hides from the world, almost dies in a car crash and vows that if she survives, she will be bold and live life to the fullest. Her newfound courage is tested when she meets Will, who just moved to her Air Force desert town after his journalist father’s disappearance. Will is fascinated by Sasha’s brush with and secret knowledge of death.
Sasha and Will push each other to take chances and break out of their sheltered suburban world. But will they discover there is a difference between being bold and being stupid before they put themselves, or someone else, in danger?
The story sounds so interesting! I've always wondered how a near death experience would effect me. (Not that I'm hoping to go through one.) Is it easier or harder to develop relationships and hold on to them after realizing nothing, including you, is permanent? I'm curious as to how Will and Sasha interact with each other. Overall, I think it could be a pretty deep contemporary. Has anyone read it? What's your opinion? Leave me a comment and let me know.
Fun fact about the authors: They've written as a team on TV shows. A couple have been Smallville (yes, that one) and The Book of Daniel. That's some major writing credit under their belt!
You can buy Bold at Amazon Kindle for only $2.99!
