You might know Laurie Boyle Crompton as the author of the forthcoming FANGIRL (Sourcebooks, 2013), but today she has some additional exciting news to celebrate in a completely different direction: a brand new book deal with a brand new publisher.
ADRENALINE tells the story of seventeen-year-old Dyna, who comes from a family of risk-takers and gets her thrills like she lives her life: as fast, as hard, and as much as possible. And then disaster strikes, and everything in Dyna’s life changes. Forced to reacquaint herself with a world she thought she knew, Dyna faces a struggle between risk and safety, between giving up and living life to the full, between the boy who just wants to protect her and the one who is pushing her out of her comfort zone.
This story is told in lovely, luscious prose, mixed with free verse narrative. Right from the first page I fell in love with Dyna, and I know each of you will too! ADRENALINE was sold to Margaret Ferguson of Margaret Ferguson Books/Farrar, Strauss & Giroux, with a tentative publication date of early 2014.
