Come one, come all – it’s the YA SCAVENGER HUNT! One of the most exciting events in the blogosphere is on now.
HUNT RUNS OCT. 1- 4th. NOW CLOSED. WATCH FOR THE SPRING HUNT 2016
I’m Teri Harman, author of magic and wonder, and I’m pleased to be your hostess on this leg of the hunt.
On this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each participating YA author, you also get a secret number. Add up the numbers, and enter it for a chance to win a major prize–one lucky winner will receive at least one signed book from each author on my team in the hunt! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online until noon PST on Sunday, October 4th!
You can start right here or you can also go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage to find out all about the hunt.
There are several contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all of them! I am a part of the RED TEAM–but there are also lots of other teams and if you do those hunts too you’ll have a chance to win a whole different set of signed books!
Directions: Below, you’ll notice that I’ve listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the red team, and then add them up (don’t worry, you can use a calculator!). Hint: the secret number is highlighted in
Entry Form: Once you’ve added up all the numbers, make sure you fill out the form here to officially qualify for the grand prize (a signed copy of each of the red team authors books). Only entries that have the correct number will qualify.

To be eligible for the grand prize, you must submit the completed entry form by Oct. 4, 2015 at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.
Now that all the technical stuff is out of the way, I’ll introduce the author I am hosting on this hunt.
I am super excited to be hosting…
When Lorie Ann Grover (Look! A three -3- part name) grew to six feet tall, it became hard to partner with male dancers in the ballet company. Now, instead of plies, she stands as the Immortal Fairy Who Points the Way when she practices weapons tai chi. Sitting down to write, she commiserates with teens and laughs with babies. And vice versa.
Lorie Ann is the author of young adult novels such as HIT. Hypable called it “a powerful book about tragedy and recovery which shows you both sides of the story, for better or worse.” Her other works include LOOSE THREADS, a Booklist Top 10 Youth First Novel, and FIRSTBORN, a Kirkus Starred Review. As a literacy advocate, she is a co-founder of readergirlz, awarded the National Book Foundation’s Innovations in Reading.
Her book: LOOSE THREADS
Kay lives with four generations of women: On the evening Grandma Margie tells her family she has a lump in her breast, Kay’s world tumbles.
Struggling with junior high, her too-perfect mother, her friends, and her grandmother’s diagnosis, Kay is awhirl with questions. She journeys to a new understanding of the complexities and importance of bravery and community.
As a verse novel, LOOSE THREADS reverberates with emotion and depth and will leave no reader untouched.
