The YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes 2: Electric Boogaloo

Welcome to Stop #1 in the “Laser-Eyed Iguana” leg of the YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes 2:  Electric Boogaloo.   In case you missed the first one, the YAmazing Race is the coolest blog hop ever, featuring over 50 debut authors and a veritable smorgasbord of booty including: ARCs, gift certificates, swag, and a bottle of perfume made from lilacs, the scent of fresh-baked blueberry muffins, and Katniss Everdeen’s sweat.

Okay, I made up that last one.

The race officially begins at noon EST on Wednesday, May 2, so if you’re reading this before that time, you may want to amuse yourself by checking out REUNITED’s book trailer.  And if you haven’t yet been to the Apocalypsies website, CLICK HERE to start from the beginning and read the complete rules.  Now on to the race!

REUNITED by Hilary Weisman Graham  (Simon & Schuster – June 12, 2012)

1 Concert.    2,000 Miles.     3 Ex-Best Friends

Alice, Summer, and Tiernan are ex-best friends.  Back in middle school, the girls were inseparable. They were also the number one fans of the rock band Level3.  But when the band broke up, so did their friendship.  Summer ran with the popular crowd, Tiernan was a rebellious wild-child, and Alice spent high school with her nose buried in books.  Now, just as the girls are about to graduate, Level3 announces a one-time-only reunion show. Even though the concert’s 2000 miles away, Alice buys three tickets on impulse.  And as it turns out, Summer and Tiernan have their own reasons for wanting to get out of town.  But on the long drive cross-country, the girls hit more than a few bumps in the road. Will their friendship get an encore or is the show really over?


Now tuck that away in your clever, little brain for the quiz at the end.

Plus, I’m also hosting a bonus contest where I’ll be giving away a limited edition pea pod necklace.  Why a pea pod, you ask?  Because the “Pea Pod” happens to be the name of the 1976 pea green VW camper bus Alice, Summer, & Tiernan take on their 2,000 mile road-trip.

Enter to win this pea pod necklace!
The "Pea Pod," from the REUNITED book trailer.

Do any of the following six things and you’ll be entered to WIN the pea pod necklace.  Or, do all six and you’ll be entered six times!  And don’t forget to tell me how many times you entered in the comments section of my blog.

Ready to move on?  Then CLICK here to link to the site of Anne Nesbet, author of 2012 Kind’s Indie Next List book, CABINET OF EARTHS   And good luck!

  22. Hiya! I’ve honestly never heard of your book until I was looking for new books to read and stumbled across the YAmazing Race… which then led me to your website/book. But it sounds like a very interesting book that I’m definitely going to put on my to-read list 🙂 Anyway, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for the time you took to write this book for us readers and for the cute giveaway (I love how it’s related to the book :D)!

  42. This book reminds me of the time a group of my friends and I got together and road tripped to N.Y. to go to Woodstock ’99. I was a Junior in High School. It was a rough trip and even rougher 3 day concert, but I’ll never forget it!

  47. I follow your blog and twitter and added Reunited on GoodReads. I actually am already on the waiting list at my library and am really looking forward to reading it!

  48. Okay, so I did all 6 and am really hoping not to find any Katniss sweat anywhere at any time!
    I’ve been looking forward to REUNITED ever since I did my Gate Crasher’s feature at Ink and Angst on the Apocalypsies. You’re such a groovy gal; I know REUNITED will be wonderful!

  49. Thanks, Katherine! I’m just writing an article right now about what it was like bringing a fictional band to life. I never saw that Britney Spears movie & I’m guessing I never will.

  50. i was actually already doing almost all of these things, yay!!

  51. Well, Reunited has been on my Goodreads list since LAST June, so that one was a no-brainer! And of course, this constitutes a comment!

    Let me just say that I am really excited to read this novel next month. I have a feeling that it’s going to be a much, MUCH better kind of story that that train-wreck Britney Spears movie. I fully anticipate a lot of laughs and a few cries.

    ps: I am so impressed by the interactive music and that the band in the novel is a legitimate band! It adds a whole other level to the novel and now I really cannot wait!

  52. Oh I love that necklace! Ive been eyeing a similar one!
    So, I blog followed you.
    And Left you a comment
    and goodreaded your book, and you-ginnysnightstand

    And Facebooked you-(Ginny Youngblood)

    As an aside-my apartment neighbors are either moving or they are tearing their apartment down. Kind of a ton of thumps and bumps!
