I was so excited about going to a book signing this last week by Sarah Dessen in Denver, Colorado - I know it's hard to believe an author came to the middle of the nation, but I was lucky.

So I am reading her new book "What Happened to Goodbye" and it is really good. I am so enjoying it. I thought I would do the teaser from this book this week.

"But I wasn't listening as, instead, I took every bit of the anger and stress of the last few minutes and days put it behind the ball, throwing it overhead at the basket as hard as I could. It went flying, hitting the backboard and banging through the netless hoop at full speed before shooting back out and nailing Dave Wade squarely on the forehead. And just like that, he was down." (What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen page 111)

Mclean was having a bad day!

The book is so good - you must read it.

Speaking of which, if you would like to WIN a SIGNED copy of this book check out my 400 follower giveaway.
