DRIVEN Blog Tour








Lisa Nowak asked me to be part of her blog tour to celebrate the release of her new book DRIVEN.

I've talked about Lisa Nowak before on my blog and gushed about how great I think her books are.  She writes YA novels that center on auto racing, a subject many of my students are into. 

I'm happy to share Driven with you!

About the Book:

The last thing on 16-year-old Jess DeLand’s wish list is a boyfriend. She’d have to be crazy to think any guy would look twice at her. Besides, there are more important things to hope for, like a job working on cars and an end to her mom’s drinking. Foster care is a constant threat, and Jess is willing to sacrifice anything to stay out of the system. When luck hands her the chance to work on a race car, she finds herself rushing full throttle into a world of opportunities—including a boy who doesn’t mind the grease under her fingernails. The question is, can a girl who keeps herself locked up tighter than Richard Petty’s racing secrets open up enough to risk friendship and her first romance?

Sounds great, right? 

I read this book about two years ago.  It was the first of Lisa's books that I read, and I love that it's told from a girl's perspective.  And you don't have to be a lover of racing (or even know about it!) to like her books.  The focus is racing, but there is so much more to each of the stories that any YA fan would love them!

Check out each of her books here:
