A few months ago, Gretchen McNeil tweeted about her author friend, Tracey Martin, who has an upcoming YA contemporary. Never ones to sleep on new books, we immediately checked it out!

Sometimes when you lose control, you find yourself.
It took ten seconds for Gabrielle to skid on a patch of black ice. Ten seconds to wreck her car and her back. Ten seconds to ruin her Olympic dreams.
Ten seconds to kill her younger sister.
Eight months later, Gabrielle’s haunted by guilt, dependent on drugs to numb her pain and alcohol to numb her brain. Then Erik Tennyson crashes into her. Soon Gabrielle’s immersed in the ghostly legend surrounding the Tennyson orchard, convinced that her sister is linked to its mysterious origins. If she can just discover the truth, maybe she can put her sister's spirit to rest. But as Gabrielle grows closer to Erik, her world skids out of control once more. Instead of appeasing the dead, she starts remembering how to live.
Yeah, it's pretty dang gorgeous. The premise reminds us of For This Life Only (which we LOVED). Hold tight for upcoming reviews...We are so excited to read it!
Tracey Martin wanted to be an astronaut, a doctor, and an actor, possibly all at once. Instead, she studied psychology, and that led her to have an epiphany–imaginary people are way more fun than real ones. And so she became a writer.
She likes her coffee simple, her music epic, and her movies to contain explosions. A city girl at heart, she doesn’t understand how she and her husband ended up living in New Hampshire, but writing keeps her off the mean, small town streets.
Although she considers herself a hermit, she’s a friendly one. You can find her online at TA_Martin and on her website.
