sweet, contemporary Beauty & the Beast retelling by the name of Crazy Beautiful. It was my first Lauren Baratz-Logsted book and I concluded it definitely wanting to check out more of her work. Her latest release, The Education of Bet, is a young adult historical fiction novel featuring a few of my favorite things: cross-dressing, switching places, girls thirsty for education and all manner of such fun things. Today I'm excited to be part of Lauren's unique celebration tour. I got to ask her one question. Any question. And she promised to answer truthfully. I hope you smile and enjoy her response as much as I did!
I can't quit Jennifer Echols . Not that I really try that hard, but I read her new ones and often feel as though I'm still searching for that one in possession of that certain something that will make me feel the way Going Too Far did. Like I couldn't put it it down. And definitely like I didn't hate either of the main characters after the fact. Well, I found it with Such a Rush . I read this 300+ pager in a single night, which clears up the question of whether or not I couldn't put it down. And I finished it definitely not hating either of the main characters. I didn't finish it loving them both unreservedly, though. I loved Leah with my whole heart from page one and that never changed. My feelings regarding one of the Hall brothers remain complicated. More to come on this in a bit. On a side note, I'm delighted that Such a Rush is Ms. Echols' hardcover debut. It's a meticulously designed book, a pleasure to hold in my hands as I stayed up way
