Summer Fun & Giveaway with Mindi Scott

Please welcome Mindi Scott, author of Live Through This, for one last installment of summer fun. Leave a comment to win a copy of the book! 

What's your favorite summer memory?
My summers were spent traveling with members of my dad’s side of the family. For a number of years, my aunt, cousins, and grandma, would stay for several weeks at my aunt’s vacation house in Ocean Shores, Washington. When I think of summer, that’s where my mind goes first.
Ice cream or popsicle? What's your favorite flavor?
I love Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food ice cream more than anything ever.
What did you read last summer? 
I read bunches of contemporary YA novels and even a couple of YA novels that fall more into the fantasy realm. 
About the book:
From the outside, Coley Sterling’s life seems pretty normal . . . whatever that means. It’s not perfect—her best friend is seriously mad at her and her dance team captains keep giving her a hard time—but Coley’s adorable, sweet crush Reece helps distract her. Plus, she has a great family to fall back on—with a mom and stepdad who would stop at nothing to keep her siblings and her happy.

But Coley has a lot of secrets. She won’t admit—not even to herself—that her almost-perfect life is her own carefully-crafted fa├žade. That for years she’s been burying the shame and guilt over a relationship that crossed the line. Now that Coley has the chance at her first real boyfriend, a decade’s worth of lies are on the verge of unraveling.

In this unforgettable powerhouse of a novel, Mindi Scott offers an absorbing, layered glimpse into the life of an everygirl living a nightmare that no one would suspect.
