Posted September 7, 2010 by Sara 1 Comment

Today, we’re featuring another great YA author coming to Wordstock Festival in Portland, Oregon October 9-10th. Check out The Summer of Skinny Dipping by Amanda Howells:

Sometimes I still wake up shivering in the early hours of the morning, drowning in dreams of being out there in the ocean that summer, of looking up at the moon and feeling as invisible and free as a fish. But I-m jumping ahead, and to tell the story right I have to go back to the very beginning. To a place called Indigo Beach. To a boy with pale skin that glowed against the dark waves. To the start of something neither of us could have predicted, and which would mark us forever, making everything that came after and before seem like it belonged to another life.My name is Mia Gordon: I was sixteen years old, and I remember everything.
