Last List Blog Hop: spotlight on Ilsa J. Bick's The Dickens Mirror @ilsajbick

When I heard Egmont USA had shut its doors, my heart immediately went out to the authors and the books they had scheduled for release this spring and beyond. What would happen to these titles? Would anyone care besides the authors and readers? Then I read a post at Cuddlebuggery and the wonderful people there were addressing my same thoughts but then they took it further. They came up with the Last List Blog Hop. 

Reader Girls are thrilled to be a part of this blog hop. We are focusing the spotlight on author Ilsa J. Bick (why aren't her books made into TV series or movies yet?) and the second book in her The Dark Passages series, The Dickens Mirror. I'm reading the first book now, Dark Passages, and it is unlike anything I've read in YA (and that's a good thing).

Recently it was announced that Lerner Publishing Group had acquired Egmont USA'a list (read about it here). I'm glad these author's books have a new home.

Polarity in Motion by Brenda Vicars blog tour with excerpt, guest post and #giveaway @BrendaVicars @RAPublishing

Polarity in Motion 
by Brenda Vicars
YA contemporary
Paperback/eBook, 255 pages
Published December 2014 by Red Adept Publishing, LLC

Fifteen-year-old Polarity Weeks just wants to live a normal life, but with a mother diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, that’s rarely easy. Her life gets exponentially more disastrous when her sixth-period history classmates start ogling a nude picture of her on the Internet. Polarity would never have struck such a shameless pose, but the photo is definitely of her, and she’s at a complete loss to explain its existence.

Child Protective Services yanks her from her home, suspecting her parents. The kids at school mock her, assuming she took it herself. And Ethan, the boy she was really starting to like, backpedals and joins the taunting chorus. Surrounded by disbelief and derision on all sides, Polarity desperately seeks the truth among her friends. Only then does she learn that everyone has dark secrets, and no one’s life is anywhere near normal.
