Hello everyone! I’m pleased to announce the first ARC tour I will be hosting on my blog!
What does an ARC tour consist of, exactly?
I have a survey linked below. Fill it out with the proper information, and I will pick ten readers to receive a physical ARC of the book. You are required to post a review on your blog that you have been active on for at least 6 months. You will have two weeks to read the ARC and post the review; you will have to send a link of the review to me. At the two week mark, you are required to send it to the next person in line on the ARC tour, providing a shipping number to me and the next person in line.
For this ARC tour and future tours, I (Alice) will be the only one holding your information. I will only provide your address to one other person, who is the next person in line for the ARC tour. The publisher will send the ARC to the first person, who will read/review it, and send the ARC to the second person, and so on. I request that you do not write on it, to treat it well for the next person in line.
I am restricting this ARC tour for only US residents, to reduce the shipping costs between participants.
So what book is going to be featured on this ARC tour?
All of This Is True by Lygia Day Peñaflor! There is no cover yet, but I adore the synopsis. Check it out:
In this gripping, genre-defying YA novel, four Long Island teens befriend a bestselling YA novelist, only to find their deepest, darkest secrets in the pages of her next book—with devastating consequences. Told as a series of interviews, journal entries, and even pages from the book within the book, this recounting of a fictional scandal is a total page-turner.
Miri Tan loved the book Undertow like it was a living being. So when she and her friends went to a book signing to meet the author, Fatima Ro, they concocted a plan to get close to her, even if her friends won’t admit it now. As for Jonah, well—Miri knows none of that was Fatima’s fault.
Soleil Johnston wanted to be a writer herself one day. When she and her friends started hanging out with her favorite author, Fatima Ro, she couldn’t believe their luck—especially when Jonah Nicholls started hanging out with them, too. Now, looking back, Soleil can’t believe she let Fatima manipulate her and Jonah like that. She can’t believe that she got used for a book.
Penny Panzarella was more than the materialistic party girl everyone at the Graham School thought she was. She desperately wanted Fatima Ro to see that, and she saw her chance when Fatima asked the girls to be transparent with her. If only she’d known what would happen when Fatima learned Jonah’s secret. If only she’d known that the line between fiction and truth was more complicated than any of them imagined. . . .
