Intrigue, suspense, murder, and more…Plus, a giveaway!
By Lauren on March 18th, 2011
Lauren Felsenstein is here again with some great giveaway news! Read on for details.
It’s Friday, so many of you are probably looking for an amazing weekend read and I’m here to help you out with a great one. It’s got love and desire. It’s got intrigue and suspense. It’s got murder, menace, music, and the mob. It’s Strings Attached, the new book by New York Times-bestselling author Judy Blundell, winner of the National Book Award for her first novel, What I saw and How I Lied.
When Kit Corrigan arrives in New York City, she doesn’t have much. She’s fled from her family in Providence, Rhode Island, and she’s broken off her tempestuous relationship with a boy named Billy, who’s enlisted in the army. The city doesn’t exactly welcome her with open arms. She gets a bit part as a chorus girl in a Broadway show, but she knows that’s not going to last very long. She needs help—and then it comes from an unexpected source.
The Los Angeles Times has called Judy’s writing in Strings Attached “reminiscent of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s in The Great Gatsby.” [Editor's note: WOW. How amazing is that?] The Wall Street Journal wrote, “from the first pages of this sophisticated novel for young adults, we are immersed in the scrappy, wisecracking, hard-edged world of 1950s Manhattan.” And see what the New York Times, Washington Post, and Bookpage had to say when they read it!
