If you have visited the Choc Lit Author’s Corner recently, some of you may have noticed that the banner at the top has changed to show some of the lovely new covers for Choc Lit books coming out this year. One of them is mine so I thought I’d do a proper ‘cover reveal’ today to show it in all its glory. Here it is, the cover for New England Rocks!
New England Rocks is a completely new departure for me – the first in a series of Young Adult contemporary stories set in, yes, you guessed it, New England, USA. I wanted a change from writing historicals with all the research that entails, so I decided to have a go at the YA genre instead and this is the result. I have to admit I had a lot of fun writing this as it took me down memory lane to my own teenage years. I hope readers will enjoy it as well!
Here is the blurb:-
First impressions, how wrong can you get?
When Rain Mackenzie is expelled from her British boarding school, she can’t believe her bad luck. Not only is she forced to move to New England, USA, she’s also sent to the local high school as a punishment.
Rain makes it her mission to dislike everything about Northbrooke High, but what she doesn’t bank on is meeting Jesse Devlin …
Not only is Jesse the hottest guy Rain’s ever seen, he also plays guitar in an awesome rock band.
There’s just one small problem … Jesse already has a girlfriend, little miss perfect Amber Lawrence, who looks set to cause trouble as Rain and Jesse get closer.
But, what does any of it matter? New England sucks anyway, and Rain doesn’t plan on sticking around …
