While I don’t have as many new titles to report in this week’s edition of What’s In My Mailbox? as last week, I’m really excited about what I do have to share. First, Marina Cohen sent me a signed copy of her 2009 book Ghost Ride. I have a couple signed books now, including my copy of When You Are Engulfed In Flames by David Sedaris and Possessions by Nancy Holder. However, Marina is the first author to give me a copy with a really personal message since we talk quite frequently on Twitter, and I have to admit that it really made my day. Thanks again Marina!
Sam, Cody and Javon decide to go ghost riding, a practice in which the driver and passengers of a car get onto the roof to dance while the car is still speeding down the road. You might not be too surprised that something goes horribly wrong with a stunt like this, but the decisions made in secret by the surviving two teens don’t seem to have gone unnoticed. Who is leaving these alarming messages for Cody and Sam and what do they know? Check out GhostRide to find out!
There was only one other book that I received in the mail last week – Gayle Forman‘s best selling book, If I Stay. If it seems a little like déjà vu, like you’ve heard me talk about the same book last week. Well, you’d be correct. I got a second copy this week, so stay tuned for an impromptu contest on my blog tomorrow!
