Harper Summer 2016 Tour Stop

Hello everyone! I am absolutely THRILLED to be a part of the summer stretch of the Harper tour with Irish Banana!

I have the honor of featuring a book which takes place in my home state, North Carolina. This made me a little happier than it should have, I think. ;) It is so much FUN knowing that this setting is actually about 30 minutes from where I live.

Anyway! To the book and GIVEAWAYS! Wooo!

Title: Meet Me Here
Author: Bryan Bliss    Twitter | Website | Facebook | Goodreads
Release Date: May 31, 2016

In a single night—graduation night—Thomas has to decide: Do what everyone has always expected of him? Or forge an entirely new path? Bryan Bliss’s absorbing examination of one boy struggling with expectations and realities will appeal to readers of Sara Zarr and Chris Crutcher.

Thomas is supposed to leave for the army in the morning. His father was Army. His brother, Jake, is Army—is a hero, even, with the medals to prove it. Everyone expects Thomas to follow in that fine tradition. But Jake came back from overseas a completely different person, and that has shaken Thomas’s certainty about his own future. And so when his long-estranged friend Mallory suggests one last night of adventure, Thomas takes her up on the distraction. Over the course of this single night, Thomas will lose, find, resolve, doubt, drive, explore, and leap off a bridge. He’ll also face the truth of his brother’s post-traumatic stress disorder and of his own courage. In Bryan Bliss’s deft hands, graduation night becomes a night to find yourself, find each other, find a path, and know that you always have a place—and people—to come back to.

  1. As for me this book is a great story of a brave boy that decides ti think and even make some changes in his life. Meet me here definitely goes to my book shelf!

  2. I am interested in this book and Bryan's previous book! Both sound like very good reads!

  3. This sounds like a great read and I can't wait to get my hands on it!

  4. I love reading books about finding the strength to stay true to yourself and make your own decisions.

  5. I have a soft spot for books surrounding the military, so I'll definitely be looking into this book more. Thank you for making me aware of it. :)

  6. This book is definitely something different from what I normally read, but it sounds so interesting. I like that the main character is a boy and that it deals with PTSD.

  7. Meet Me Here sounds intriguing, and I'm on a YA binge anyway ;)

    Your blog looks so beautiful! Thanks for hosting! There are so many books in the giveaway that sound awesome!
