Saturday, November 1, 2014


I loved Laurie Boyle Crompton's previous books, Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillains) and The Real Prom Queens of Westfield High, as seen in my reviews. I just love the voice of her characters and the unique plots. So, I'm pretty pumped for Adrenaline Crush and I can't wait to read it myself. Check it out below and join the giveaway!

Adrenaline Crush
Title: Adrenaline Crush
Author: Laurie Boyle Crompton
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
Date of Publication: September 23, 2014

When a daredevil teen pushes herself too far, she must choose between two boys: the one who wants to keep her safe, and the one who dares her to return to her old self.

Seventeen-year-old Dyna comes from a family of risk takers and is an avid thrill-seeker herself, until the day she splinters her ankle in a terrible fall. Her whole life goes from mountain biking and rock climbing to sitting at home and attending group sessions at the bizarre alternative healing center that her hippie mother found. The boy who witnessed Dyna’s accident believes her injury is a wakeup call and he encourages her mild new lifestyle, but a young Afghanistan War veteran she meets at the healing center pushes her to start taking chances again. Forced to face the consequences of her daredevil impulses, Dyna finds herself in danger of risking the one thing she’s always treated with caution—her heart.
