Never Eighteen (Books From A To Z)

Wow!  To never see eighteen - that was so long ago!!!  I guess we just never know!

This book sounds awesome!  What would you do with your time, if you knew it was limited? Would you focus on yourself, your what you can do for your family?  I have a lot of respect for this young man to think of his family first!
Book Synopsis:  I had the dream again. The one where I’m running. I don’t know what from or where to, but I’m scared, terrified really.

Austin Parker is never going to see his eighteenth birthday. At the rate he’s going, he probably won’t even see the end of the year. But in the short time he has left there’s one thing he can do: He can try to help the people he loves live—even though he never will.

It’s probably hopeless.

But he has to try.
About the Author (taken from her website):   Megan (that’s with a long “e”) Bostic is a mere human trying to find her place in the universe and an all-around great girl. Despite the rain and gray (she’s truly solar powered) making her extremely angsty, she’s lived in the Pacific Northwest her whole life, and still does, with her two crazy beautiful girls. 

She thrives on the challenges faced in her journey to publication and has documented it vlog style. You can find her Chronicles of an Aspiring Writer on Youtube.

Her writing process she lovingly calls “organized chaos”. She writes on her laptop at the kitchen table next to the sliding glass door so she can absorb as much sun as she can. The “organized” part of the process mostly takes place in her head and involves the beginning and the end of her work in progress. The “chaos” part is pretty much how she sits down and writes with reckless abandon, not stopping to fix, revise, edit, or even breathe until she’s done.

When not writing, Megan is usually chauffeuring her teenage daughters and their friends, watching her girls play soccer, watching movies and TV shows on Netflix, hanging out with friends, spending time at the ocean, or walking the Narrows Bridge.

Megan loves the color black, monkeys, and is a notorious Facebook addict. She’s a proud member of The Class of 2K12 and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. You can also find her on Twitter, Goodreads, Jacketflap, and anywhere else cool authors hang out.

(isn’t it awkward when people talk about themselves in third person?)

  1. What part of that blurb hooked you? I'm curious because based on that little blurb I wouldn't be intrigued enough to open up the book if I saw it on a bookshelf to read the jacket copy or anything, I'd just keep walking. (Which is not to say it's not a great book, I don't know, I've not read it). I've been thinking about that sort of thing a lot these days because soon I'll be back at the querying grind and I'm hoping to hook people's attention ;)

    1. I have to find out why he won't see his 18th birthday!!! Or why he might not see the end of the year. That is quite enough to draw me in. Just a vague little intrigue.

  2. LOL Fair enough. I will definitely be keeping that in mind when I start writing my query letters :)
