Since I started the AZ Author Chat Book Club a couple of months ago I can’t believe this exists! Read a book and then meet up with a group and Skype with the author. It was actually Rebekah Crane who gave me the idea. She posted about skyping after reading her book Playing Nice. It was a great experience to have the author there and to be chatting with her. We talked a lot asking questions and listening to her story. It was such an awesome personal experience.
You can have this experience too! Rebekah would love to chat with any book club. I recommend it because it just is a different type of book club that you gain so much knowledge from talking with the author.
Here is the synopsis of Playing Nice:
Martina “Marty” Hart is really nice. At least, that’s what people think.
It’s Marty’s junior year at Minster High. Minster’s a small town where making great grades, smiling pretty, helping old people, running the new-student Welcoming Committee, and putting up decorations for all the dances–including the totally awful Hot Shot fall hunting celebration–gets you … what? Marty’s not sure. Instead of dreaming about a sororities-and-frats future at nearby University of Michigan, she’s restless, searching for a way out of the box her controlling mother and best frenemy Sarah have locked her in. When Lil–don’t call her Lily!–Hatfield transfers to Minster, Marty gets her chance. Lil’s different. She smokes, wears black, listens to angry punk records, and lives in a weird trailer with her mother. Lil has secrets–secrets that make her a target for all the gossiping and online bullying Minster can muster. But so does Marty. And Marty sees something different in Lil. Something honest. Something real.
Playing Nice is the achingly true story of a girl who’s been following the rules for so long she’s forgotten who she was when she started. It’s about falling in love with the wrong people and not seeing the right ones, about the moments in life when you step out of line, take a chance … and begin to break free.
This is such a wonderful book! It is a must read. We loved it so much and want to share it with you! Here are links to the book!
