Girl’s Life magazine called Pretty Amy a must-read! Squee! : “If you’ve ever felt like you didn’t belong or didn’t know what you wanted to do with your life, then Pretty Amy is a must-read for you. Even if you haven’t felt like that, this book will help you understand the people who do.”
Co-editor of the upcoming Dear Teen Me Anthology, E. Kristin Anderson says: “Lisa Burstein has one of the most refreshingly real YA voices I’ve read in years. If you’re looking for a helluva trip that begins with an imploding prom night, cruises through the murky waters of the wrong side of the law, bad boys, tough love, and toxic friendship, and ends up with all the right surprises, please get your hands on a copy of Pretty Amy – STAT! ”
Author of Almost Anne Eliot says: “In PRETTY AMY, Lisa Burstein has masterfully captured the private heart and soul of what it means–exactly how ithurts–and how vulnerable life is for teen girls. Girls who live in a constant storm fueled by self-doubt, disconnected parents, twisted friendships and normal rebellion all wrapped up in a craving need for love and acceptance. Burstein’s writing is beautifully raw and hyper-real. PRETTY AMY will shock you, make you laugh, cry, yell, cheer, look in the mirror and examine your own friendships as you relate to one or more of the unforgettable characters in this story.”
Not only did Anne provide that blurb, but she read the book with her daughter who gave it a 5-STAR REVIEW ! Proving PRETTY AMY is a book mothers and daughters can read together as well as a book that can touch women of any age.
That isn’t all the fun we have to share. Lisa is having a contest to celebrate PRETTY AMY being 1 month old, where you can win a 3-chapter critique from her, her editor Stacy Cantor Abrams, or her agent Susan Finesman. Someone recently paid $335 in an auction for a critique from Stacy and Lisa is offering it in her contest! She is also giving away bookish gift cards and a super-cute talking parrot toy with a special message just for you! Get the entry details here! http://www.lisaburstein.com/Contests_.html
