Young Adult Giveaway Hop

The Young Adult Giveaway Hop is hosted by  I Am a Reader, Not a Writer and Down the Rabbit Hole.

For this lovely hop, I am giving away my hardback copy of Exposed by Kimberly Marcus!

Description: In the dim light of the darkroom, I'm alone, but not for long.
As white turns to gray, Kate is with me.
The background of the dance studio blurred, so the focus is all on her
legs extended in a perfect soaring split.
The straight line to my squiggle,
my forever-best friend.

Sixteen-year-old Liz is Photogirl—sharp, focused and confident in what she sees through her camera lens. Confident that she and Kate will be best friends forever.

But everything changes in one blurry night. Suddenly, Kate is avoiding her, and people are looking the other way when she passes in the halls. As the aftershocks from a startling accusation rip through Liz's world, everything she thought she knew about photography, family, friendship and herself shifts out of focus. What happens when the picture you see no longer makes sense? What do you do when you may lose everything you love most? Told in stunning, searingly raw free verse, Exposed is Kimberly Marcus's gut-wrenching, riveting debut and will appeal to fans of Ellen Hopkins, Laurie Halse Anderson and Virginia Euwer Wolff.

This giveaway is open until 11:59 p.m. January, 31st. It is open to the U.S. only. To enter, all you have to do is fill out the form below, and don't forget to check out all the other wonderful giveaways in the hop!


  1. Thank you for participating in this fun hop. I have not had the opportunity to complete college and only attended a local JC many years ago. My son was went to Portland State University and is now attending Southern Oregon University, which he is enjoying very much. Good luck in your search and choices. So often options are limited by fiances and I wish you all success in meeting your goals and finding just the right path for you :)

  2. Thanks for the giveaway :)
    Sounds like a great read.

    Tweeted but having trouble posting link. My handle is @Kulmona so you can verify.

  3. Thanks so much for the awesome giveaway! I am a new follower and interested to read Exposed. Fingers crossed! I attended Cal State Fullerton and UCI and would recommend them both. But the writing classes I took at UCI were phenomenal and the campus was gorgeous.
