Shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post it here in the comments, or grab the adorable button above and share it on your blog! I want to know & so do the chicks at YABound!

Friends vs. Family (The Ghost Bird, #3)
Sang Sorenson is forced to suffer through another of her mother’s extreme punishments. It almost kills her. The Academy boys vow it will be the last. They're determined to keep Sang safe, especially from her own family.

Their solution: complete invasion of her life.

Kota, Luke, Silas, Nathan, Victor, Gabriel and North do everything within their power to show Sang what true loyalty means. It takes more than blood to make a family and they want Sang in theirs.

In this third book of The Academy series Sang experiences a taste of freedom and what it’s like to truly be cared be wanted. Sang learns a bit more about the boys’ broken families and the boys discover more than they could ever have bargained for about Sang’s. The Academy was the answer to their problems. Could it be hers?

Sang’s actions will force her mother to reveal a startling truth. A truth that will change Sang’s life and the boys’ lives in unpredictable ways. Forever.

The Academy, Allegiance


My face flamed, my lips trembled. "Victor," I whispered. I understood what he was implying but the reality didn't want to click in my brain. He couldn't be serious. "The girl--" 
"Is beautiful, funny, and puts up with our wild, reckless group," he said. He finished locking the bracelet on and held my hand up to let it glitter under the light from the garage. His thumb traced over the skin on the back of my hand. "And she's the most brilliant and the most naive girl I've ever met. I'd give her anything she ever wanted to let me in. To trust me."

Victor's a freaking sweetheart and I love him. LOVE. And I'm starting book 4 in this series now and dear goodness, I AM SO ADDICTED. It makes me feel all happy inside. :)

That's our swoon for this week! What do you think? Do you have a swoon to share? Leave us a comment and link us up!


  1. Awww! I love it when a guy is a sweetie! I find that "Victor"'s in literature are always super hot villains or super hot guys in general. Love this swoon, Val! :)
