On Sale Today

Okay kiddos, get your wallets ready...

On sale today:


DJ RisingMeet Marley, an unassuming high school junior who breathes in music like oxygen. In between caring for his heroin-addicted mother, and keeping his scholarship at a fancy prep school, he dreams of becoming a professional DJ.

When chance lands Marley his first real DJ job, his career as "DJ Ice" suddenly skyrockets. But when heart-rending disaster at home brings Marley crashing back down to earth, he is torn between obligation and following his dreams.



The Rivals (The Mockingbirds, #2)When Alex Patrick was assaulted by another student last year, her elite boarding school wouldn't do anything about it. This year Alex is head of the Mockingbirds, a secret society of students who police and protect the student body. While she desperately wants to live up to the legacy that's been given to her, she's now dealing with a case unlike any the Mockingbirds have seen before.

It isn't rape. It isn't bullying. It isn't hate speech. A far-reaching prescription drug ring has sprung up, and students are using the drugs to cheat. But how do you try a case with no obvious victim? Especially when the facts don't add up, and each new clue drives a wedge between Alex and the people she loves most: her friends, her boyfriend, and her fellow Mockingbirds.

As Alex unravels the layers of deceit within the school, the administration, and even the student body the Mockingbirds protect, her struggle to navigate the murky waters of vigilante justice may reveal more about herself than she ever expected.
I'm a little excited about DJ Rising. It's not my typical read, but I am always on the hunt for "boy books."

I've heard of the Rivals, but not DJ Rising. Is there really a market for DJ's? I didn't even know that was a job anymore.

I did think The Rivals sounded interesting. But I've got way too much to read. Hope you'll read it and let me know how it is!

I don't know if being a DJ is a real job or not... haha more of a hobby maybe? I do know, though, I always had at least a handful of boys that wanted to be DJs (maybe not professional ones) or pro athletes-- the most common career goal. Anything that will get them to read is okay with me!
