Welcome to the YA Scavenger Hunt!  

One lucky winner will receive one signed book from each author on the hunt in my team --which is the TEAL TEAM.  There are EIGHT contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all. 

Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt and see the full list of prizes up for grabs and bonus material.  My bonus material is a letter Lillian wrote to Lily which hasn't been published yet.  It explains more of the dynamic between the two.   

Directions: You'll notice that I've "hidden" my favorite number somewhere in this post. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the TEAL TEAM, and then add them up. 

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. Only entries that have the correct number will qualify.

Rules: Open internationally, anyone below the age of 18 should have a parent or guardian's permission to enter. To be eligible for the grand prize, you must submit the completed entry form by October 5th, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.

As part of the hunt, I am hosting author Lance Rubin!

Lance's new book, Denton Little’s Deathdate, takes place in a world exactly like our own except that everyone knows the day they will die.  For Denton, that’s in just two days—the day of his senior prom.

Here's the summary.

Denton Little’s Deathdate takes place in a world exactly like our own except that everyone knows the day they will die. For Denton, that’s in just two days—the day of his senior prom.

Despite his early deathdate, Denton has always wanted to live a normal life, but his final days are filled with dramatic firsts. First hangover. First sex. First love triangle—as the first sex seems to have happened not with his adoring girlfriend, but with his best friend’s hostile sister. (Though he’s not totally sure—see, first hangover.) His anxiety builds when he discovers a strange purple rash making its way up his body. Is this what will kill him? And then a strange man shows up at his funeral, claiming to have known Denton’s long-deceased mother, and warning him to beware of suspicious government characters. . . . Suddenly Denton’s life is filled with mysterious questions and precious little time to find the answers.

Lance has also been kind enough to provide us with a bonus scene.  You can read it by clicking the link below.
