It is Thursday, July 24rd.  We are TWO days from the PPL YA Author Fest.  And it seems only fitting that this close to the event Pickerington’s own Natalie Richards is our last author feature.
If you like amnesia stories, thrillers that keep you guessing, smart heroines who don’t take crap and want to make their lives their own, you’ll want to pick up Six Months Later.  Natalie takes readers on one heck of a ride with her debut novel, and we can’t wait to see what she’ll do with her second book, Gone Too Far.
In Six Months Later, Chloe must unravel the truth - which is far darker than she could ever imagine - when she wakes up after losing six months of her life to discover everything is different.  And very wrong. She’s gone from struggling student to star pupil, outcast to Miss Popular, and she’s girlfriend to the one guy she’s drooled over for as long as she can remember.  On top of all that, her best friend won’t even speak to her.  Something is definitely very, very wrong and she can’t shake the feeling that her life isn’t hers.  (If you’re creeped out right now, you should be.)  Once Chloe starts to peel back the layers of her “life”, what she finds is terrifying.  Add in a dash of romance, a really great cast of secondary characters, and a superb mystery and you get Six Months Later.
Natalie is a friend of the library, a friend of our staff, and a local, so we’re thrilled to have her joining us this Saturday.  But more importantly, this event wouldn’t have happened without her help.  She was the one who gave our Adult Services Manager, Amanda, a lot of the names of the attending authors and said, “Email these people and ask them to come!” She has been our partner in crime in this endeavor, a cheerleader, and a good friend.  And on Saturday, she’s the other half of our Opening Remarks speakers, along with Amanda, so be sure to come to the PPL YA Author Fest on time so you don’t miss what’s sure to be a brilliant speech from Natalie. (No pressure, Nat.)
But don’t rely on us - actually, on this, you should.  Come to this event, meet Natalie, read her book, say hello, and meet everyone else.  This is a great group of authors, we’re honored to have them with us, and we want to thank everyone for attending well ahead of time.  Trust us when we say it’s going to be a great afternoon.

Beach Reads are the last round of our Summer Fling with a Book! matchmaking service - which, to be honest, we’re a little sad about: we’ve really loved pairing up readers from around the world with new and undiscovered books! So, how are we defining “beach read”? Honestly, it’s a grab bag: whatever great books we think might suit your personality! But above are a few of our favorite YA reads: some take place on the beach, and some take place in the summer, and all of them are really, really, ridiculously good (-looking).
We’re accepting submissions through Saturday, so click here to get matched with a few books and authors who’ll help you kick back, relax, and enjoy!

Oooooh. This feeds right into our current (and minor. Very minor. Why do you ask?) obsession with all things Orphan Black and clone fiction-related.
