Today is the last day of the superfan contest for This Side of Salvation. I'm really hoping people have looked at my posts, read about the book, and now want to go out and pick it up. Jeri Smith-Ready is one of the sweetest authors out there. She is always there for her fans and this contest just proves how much she cares about us. If you haven't read any of her books, go read the Shade series or just go pick up This Side of Salvation, and you will not be disappointed.
Here's the post about the contest! And the rules are here. It's easy to enter and looks like it'll be a lot if fun. Jeri is great with her fans and I'm excited to participate in another one of her contests. Her Shade series is easily one of my favourites and I can't wait to read this new book as well!
Here's the book summary from Goodreads:
Everyone mourns differently. When his older brother was killed, David got angry. As in, fist-meets-someone-else’s-face furious. But his parents? They got religious. David’s still figuring out his relationship with a higher power, but there’s one thing he does know for sure: The closer he gets to new-girl Bailey, the better, brighter, happier, more he feels.
Then his parents start cutting all their worldly ties to prepare for the Rush, the divine moment when the faithful will be whisked off to Heaven…and they want David to do the same. David’s torn. There’s a big difference between living in the moment and giving up his best friend, varsity baseball, and Bailey—especially Bailey—in hope of salvation.
But when he comes home late from prom, and late for the Rush, to find that his parents have vanished, David is in more trouble than he ever could have imagined...
Today's trading card features Mr. Ralph, David's homeschool teacher. Jeri woke up with this quote in her head and she knew it was the novel's central truth.
