Today I'm featuring Teenagers by Samantha Steele. She began publishing her work when she was in high school! And now has several novels under her belt. Let's show her some love!
All her life, Samantha has felt a little awkward, like she belonged somewhere else - certainly not the cold blue mountains of Alaska. Her feelings are confirmed when a Ghost tells her a little story about her past and who she really is: a Sign.
But the Palace is in danger, and its leader must know the story that Samantha has forgotten. The story about Zac and the high school Samantha attended. This is that story; this is the beginning.
"This book blew my mind! Right from the start it got exciting, then just when I thought I had a pretty good idea what the 'mood' would be, and how it would all play out....Sam threw me for a loopy d loop. It was such a fun ride, the way she wrote from so many different perspectives. I don't think I've ever read anything done in that style before. But I LoVeD it! It was really funky and a little grimy. Almost like getting ping ponged into all these people's head space. I almost felt like a voyuer!! A HIGHLY recommended read!"
Samantha Steele's Bio:
Born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, Steele formed an artistic eye influenced by the beautiful mountains surrounding her tiny log cabin. Her first novel, Teenagers, was published in July 2011, the summer before her senior year of high school. Steele graduated December 15, 2011 from South Anchorage High School and ten days later moved to Reno, NV to get a degree in psychology. She loves coffee and enjoyed her employment at Starbucks in 2011, but hopes that one day her writing and painting will be enough to live on. Until then, her love of psychology and the mind will keep her bank account afloat.
