Bad Romance Links Roundup
It's been over two months since my most recent YA contemporary novel,Bad Romance,came out. Man, this summer flew by! I wanted to post some of my favorite links for guest posts and interviews that I've done over the summer. Some are fun, most get into why I wrote the book in the first place (my own bad romance in high school), and several touch on what to do if you find yourself in an unhealthy relationship.
This is a book about the dark side of love, yes, but it also features swoons, drama nerdship, and all that stuff that makes high school unforgettable. I'm really proud of the novel and so glad I wrote it. I've been getting emails and messages on social media from women and teens who are, or who have been, in relationships like this and I'm just floored by the amount of pain and bravery out there. I'm glad I can be a part of the conversation and hold space for other women and girls who are hurting. We're not alone.
