Today, we are SO thrilled to be a stop on the official blog tour for The Edumacation of Jay Baker by Jay Clark. I absolutely adored this book (my gushing review will come later today) — and I’m remiss to confess that I pulled a really slacker move on this blog tour. I failed to coordinate a post with Jay!
Lucky for me, he’s a pretty easy-going guy, and sent over some photos and links.
First up. His Book. This is it:
- He is in love with a cheerleader named Cameo “Appearance” Parnell
- He is forever losing “Love-15” to tennis-playing goddess Caroline Richardson
- He rocks a touché array of pop-culture references, jokes, and puns
- His family-life cookie is about to crumble.
Live vicariously through Jay as he faces off against his mortal enemy, gets awkward around his dream girl(s), loses his marbles in a Bermudian love triangle, watches his parents’ relationship implode, and, finally, learns to get real and be himself(ish).
The Edumacation of Jay Baker will be in stores on Tuesday, but you can pre-order it now. (And we highly recommend that you do — you can thank us later.)
And now, Jay. This is him:
After an epic series of post-collegiate employment disasters, Jay Clark decided to refrigerate the casserole of failure he’d been noshing on since 2005 and write himself a cream-of-the-crap young adult novel. Thus, The Edumacation of Jay Baker was birthed, in 2008, and sold shortly thereafter to Christy Ottaviano Books, an imprint of Henry Holt and Co. These days, Jay can be found roaming around Virginia with a befuddled look on his face, wondering how he pulled off such an unlikely comeback.
And because I don’t want to leave you completely hanging, be sure to check out Mundie Moms’ stop on the blog tour for a truly hilarious interview with Jay, and a chance to win his brilliant debut novel!
