Day 7 of 12 Days of Contemporary- Bruised by Sara Skilton
I love the premise of this book. As soon as you hear what it's about you can FEEL for the main character. I can't wait to read it! It's out March 5, 2013, so not so long a wait!
When Imogen, a sixteen-year-old black belt in Tae Kwon Do, freezes during a holdup at a local diner, the gunman is shot and killed by the police, and she blames herself for his death. Before the shooting, she believed that her black belt made her stronger than everyone else -- more responsible, more capable. But now her sense of self has been challenged and she must rebuild her life, a process that includes redefining her relationship with her family and navigating first love with the boy who was at the diner with her during the shootout.
With action, romance, and a complex heroine, Bruised introduces a vibrant new voice to the young adult world -- full of dark humor and hard truths.
While on the GET REAL CONTEMPS tour, Sarah, (HEY ANOTHER SARAH IN YA) came out with her cute little baby boy! That has nothing to do with anything really, but they were both super cute. Anyhow, BRUISED sounds so good. I love dark humor and I love hard truths! Can't wait!
