If you liked The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants...

You might like my new YA novel, The Good Deed Diaries. Hope you enjoy it!

Julia



Erin and Grace are pretty, popular and firmly ensconced in the In Crowd at Morgan High. Looking forward to a summer of sleeping late and hanging by the pool, the best friends dont think twice about the suggestion that they spend time volunteering - until they come across Clare, a bohemian misfit more into environmental awareness and yoga than parties and clothes.

Grace pushes Erin to consider Clare their own personal charity. The way Grace sees it, remaking Clare into one of them puts the "good" in "good deed".

Before Erin knows it, she and Grace are engaged in a secret campaign to change Clare. As the summer - and their friendship with Clare - progresses, Grace's audacity turns into an escalating recklessness when she learns her dad is back in rehab and Erin suspects things aren't exactly wonderful between her parents.

Clare is there through it all. Her peasant skirts and clunky sandals are slowly replaced by a more fashionable wardrobe, and without realizing it, Erin and Grace change, too. Pretty soon, Clare is more than a good deed - shes the friend Erin and Grace never knew they needed.

But when Grace's self-destructive behavior takes a dangerous turn, the good deed is revealed. To find their way back to Clare - and each other - Grace and Erin come face to face with the reality that things, and people, arent always what they seem.

    Julia-

    Welcome again to KindleBoards and congratulations on your book!  

    KindleBoards is a Kindle fan and reader forum.  As you browse KindleBoards, keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed in the Book Bazaar. (You've posted your book thread in the right place; this is just our standard welcome that we place in all book threads. :))

    A brief recap of our rules follows:

    --Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information.  You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

    --We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

    --While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days.  Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then. You may modify the latest post to reflect new information.

    --We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link.  Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

    --Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows.  This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles!  Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post.  For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
    Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

    All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum: https://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,36.0.html.  Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

    Thanks for being part of KindleBoards!  Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.
