About That's Not What I Heard
Kimberly Landis-Lilley and Teddy Lin are over. Yes, the Kim and Teddy broke up.
At least that's what Phil Spooner thinks he overheard and then told Jess Howard, Kim's best friend. Something about Teddy not liking Kim's Instas? Or was it that Teddy is moving to Italy and didn't want to do long distance? Or that Kim slid into someone else's DMs?
Jess told her boyfriend, Elvis, that he needs to be on Kim's side. Especially if he wants to keep her as his girlfriend. But Elvis is also Teddy's best friend.
Now, Kim's run out of school for the day. Jess is furious. Elvis is confused. And half the lunch period won't talk to Teddy. Even the teachers have taken sides.
William Henry Harrison High will never be the same again!

Launch Event for THE BEST KIND OF MAGIC!

On Friday May 19th at 7:00 pm, I'll be in conversation with Crystal Cestari at The Book Cellar in Chicago, celebrating the launch of her debut YA novel, The Best Kind of Magic. Come talk books and boys and witches and the Windy City with us!

About The Best Kind of Magic:
Gilmore Girls meets Buffy in Crystal Cestari’s bewitching debut novel: THE BEST KIND OF MAGIC. Set in urban Chicago, this new Windy City Magic series presents a sharp-witted, sassy heroine that will have readers everywhere laughing out loud as they explore happily-ever-afters, and the unexpected road it takes to get there.

Amber Sand is more than she seems: high school student, baker with her heart set on the Chicago Culinary Institute when she graduates and… matchmaker? Though Amber doesn’t have witch powers like her mother, she have the ability to look into a person’s eyes and see who he or she is meant to be with! So when Charlie Blitzman, the mayor’s son and most-desired boy in school, comes to her for help finding his father’s missing girlfriend, she can’t help but take a glimpse at his future bride-to-be. Unfortunately, that future love is not Amber. But as they spend more time together, Charlie falls head over heels for Amber and she can’t help but feel the same for him. But as she continues to help him, and inevitably fall for him, there’s a truth in his eyes not even she wants to know.

About Crystal Cestari:
Crystal Cestari lives in the west Chicago suburbs where she works as a content strategist for a marketing agency. She received her MA in Mass communication from Kent State University and a BA from DePaul University in Chicago. She lives with her daughter and English bulldog.
