Sixteen-year-old Lizzie Finkelstein is a hard-partying socialite who lives a charmed life with her mother in Manhattan. After a public drunken escapade results in both an arrest and an embarrassing viral video online, Lizzie’s parents stage a late night intervention. Lizzie finds herself whisked away to Utah to learn a lesson or two about taking responsibility at Camp Smiley, a wilderness survival program for troubled kids.
Camp Smiley is a far cry from Lizzie’s high society life in New York. Without her stable of luxury hair/makeup items, her teacup Pomeranian, contact with the outside world or access to social media, Lizzie must face the harsh conditions of the outdoors. Grouped with troubled campers in which she’s certain she has nothing in common (except Jack, who’s pretty hot), Lizzie must now learn to dig her own toilet in the woods and build a fire by rubbing two sticks together before the camp will ever let her go back to her former existence. She has a choice: get with the program, or get out of there. Available at major booksellers and indies April 18!

Overnight Sensation–The Remix!
Trace thinks she knows enough about her newfound dad to make the leap from being genetically related to spiritually connected in a single visit—until she gets to his blinged-out house in California. He’s made a room for Trace in his house, but can Shamus make room for her in his heart? And getting to know her dad isn’t the only thing that’s turning out to be harder than Trace thought. So is trying to get serious with Zander, her on again-off again boyfriend—especially since they’ll be at different colleges in just a few short weeks. On top of that, she’s dealing with her wild-child mother’s wedding plans. And trying to get used to the punky new haircut-slash-dye job that’s supposed to conceal her identity from the entire world…because the entire world just might’ve caught an eyeful of Trace’s butt on the Internet. Forget about only dipping a big toe into life’s big pond. Sometimes you just have to dive right in to be an overnight sensation. Get the classic here, or wait for the special 10th anniversary remix edition coming soon!
