Sneak a Peek Saturday is a feature that lets you "peek" into an upcoming book. Sometimes it is a chapter or two and maybe more.

This week I have selected an upcoming novel from A.S. King, author of Dust of 100 Dogs (one of my favorite novels). Now she releasing this new novel PLEASE IGNORE VERA DIETZ and it will amaze you as well.

Just click on the book cover below and read an excerpt about this amazing new novel and if you like it as much as I do than you can pre-order a signed copy HERE or an unsigned copy from your own favorite Indie book shop.


---Is it okay to hate a dead kid?

---Even if I loved him once?

---Even if he was my best friend?

---Is it okay to hate him for being dead?

Eighteen-year-old Vera's spent her whole life secretly in love with her best friend, Charlie Kahn. And over the years she's kept a lot of his secrets. Even after he betrayed her. Even after he ruined everything.
So when Charlie dies in dark circumstances, Vera knows a lot more than anyone—the kids at school, his family, or even the police. But will she emerge and clear his name? Does she even want to?
An edgy, gripping story, Please Ignore Vera Dietz is an unforgettable novel: smart, funny, dramatic, and always surprising.

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
