YA Book Give-Away! Tell Me What You’re Thankful For

You’re still welcome to tell me what you’re thankful for, but the contest is now closed.

I’m very thankful I get to work with such talented authors. I feel so lucky to be able to do what I do as an agent. I spent many years looking for the thing that would give me fulfillment, make some difference in the world, and earn me some money. Being an agent does that for me. I’m very proud of the manuscripts that I help become books.

In the comments below, tell me something about your reading or writing life that you’re thankful for. One commenter will receive a copy of Natasha Sinel’s debut YA novel THE FIX, which came out this fall. Here’s what it’s about:

One conversation is all it takes to break a world wide open.Fix-cover-final

Seventeen-year-old Macy Lyons has been through something no one should ever have to experience. And she’s dealt with it entirely alone. On the outside, she’s got it pretty good. Her family’s well-off, she’s dating the cute boy next door, she has plenty of friends, and although she long ago wrote her mother off as a superficial gym rat, she’s thankful to have allies in her loving, laid-back dad and her younger brother. But a conversation with a boy at a party one night shakes Macy out of the carefully maintained complacency that has defined her life so far. The boy is Sebastian Ruiz, a recovering addict who recognizes that Macy is hardened by dark secrets. And as Macy falls for Sebastian, she realizes that, while revealing her secret could ruin her seemingly perfect family, keeping silent might just destroy her.

“The Fix” follows two good-hearted teenagers coming to terms with the cards they were dealt. It’s also about the fixes we rely on to cope with our most shameful secrets and the hope and fear that come with meeting someone who challenges us to come clean.
