One thing I have come to enjoy through blogging, is helping to spread the word about authors I love!
I had the pleasure of meeting Amy Dominy last fall and loved her first book OyMG. When I heard about the idea behind her new book, Audition & Subtraction, I couldn't wait to read it. It may be the former band geek in me or the current math teacher that I am, I LOVED the title! It's such a great marriage of math and music.
I was even more excited when Maria at Cari's Blog contacted me to see if I wanted to share the in the cover reveal for Audition & Subtraction. But before the big reveal, how about a little more about the book:
About the story:
For as long as Tatum can remember it’s been:
Tatum + Lori = Best friends
They do everything together, including a yearly clarinet/flute duet for District Honor Band auditions. But when a new boy transfers to their middle school and their band, the equation suddenly changes to:
Lori + Michael – Tatum = One happy couple
With her best friend slipping away and her parents recently separated, Tatum’s life has turned upside down. Plus her good friend Aaron thinks that they are secretly boyfriend and girlfriend, all because of one little lie Tatum told. Accepting change isn’t easy for Tatum, but just how much is she willing to give up to hold on to her friendship with Lori and life as she knows it? For Tatum, the best way to move forward may require a whole new formula . . .
An now the wonderful cover:
I think it's the perfect MG cover, not too girly and not too manly.
What's a cover reveal without a little excerpt:
Mr. Wayne pointed to where we stood. “Tatum also plays clarinet, and Lori is our principal flute.” We both sort of nodded, and Michael smiled, his sunglasses reflecting back my face for a second before moving to Lori. His smile widened, and she shuffled from one foot to the other. I was still half behind her, and I tapped her with my shoulder.Thanks Maria for including my in the cover reveal today! Check out the other blogs hosting the reveal as well. And a HUGE Congrats to Amy for your second book on it's way into the world!
Loser, right? my shoulder nudge said.
She didn’t nudge back.
