I'm so excited that Camp NaNoWrimo has rolled around again. I'm signing up and I'm raring to go. I've already got my projects outlined, a cover made and a playlist of music in the making. Now there's just the waiting for April to actually begin.
This April, I'll be working on a YA Contemporary. Here's a little about it.
- A tiny, brilliant flash or spark; a small thing; a barely visible trace.
It's been a rough year for Allie. Starting with the accident that ended her gymnastics career in May and ending with her flunking out of high school almost exactly a year later. Everything seems to be going from bad to worse and she's given up. Her bedroom seems as good a place as any to spend her summer.
Her parents have other ideas. Not willing to let her sink into her self-pitying darkness, they insist upon her spending the summer at their old vacation spot. Lake Wilson. It's just what they think she needs and the last thing she wants.
There might just be one bright spot in her summer. The boy across the lake, Fletcher.
On break from college for the summer, Fletcher's parents convince him to join them at the lake where his mom spent her summer's when she was growing up. Giving up a job at a publishing house, he tries to make the most of his summer.
The last thing either of them expected was to fall for someone this summer, but that's exactly what starts happening.
As the summer unfolds, though, Allie starts to wonder if Fletcher's telling her everything. Most of the time he's the perfect guy, until he starts disappearing for days at a time with no explanation, then continues to become more and more withdrawn whenever he is around.
Could Allie's one bright spark be fading out before it can take light? And what is causing Fletcher to so suddenly withdraw from her?
