My young adult novel, President Jock, Vice President Geek, is now available in trade paperback from Flying Raven Press. If you enjoyed my debut young adult novel, The Last Great Getaway of the Water Balloon Boys, you may really enjoy this book. You can only order it from Amazon.com right now, though it will show up at other online book sellers within a few weeks. Here’s the cover flat, as well as more information about the book (click for a larger image):
President Jock, Vice President Geek
It was a simple plan. She would help him pass algebra. He would help her win the student election. What could go wrong?
Take one geeky sixteen-year-old girl deathly afraid of speaking to any crowd larger than one, but who desperately needs something on her application other than perfect grades to get her into Stanford. Add in a star basketball player who’s Mr. Popular to everyone else, but who’s hiding more than a few startling secrets. Throw in a crisis of identity, a scheming girlfriend, and troubled family lives. Oh, and make sure everything that can go wrong does. Then count the votes.
The result is PRESIDENT JOCK, VICE PRESIDENT GEEK, the story of two mixed up teenagers struggling to find themselves and the craziest student election ever to hit the halls of Rexton High.
