Daily Dose Holiday Giveaway: Christmas with a touch of Shade

Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready
Last Spring Break while I was traveling to Washington D.C. I had a group of fabulous young adult authors celebrate Spring Break with the class of Y2K10 here at the blog. Among those fabulous authors was Jeri Smith-Ready who was teasing her to be released novel: Shade.


Love ties them together.
Death can't tear them apart.

Best. Birthday. Ever. At least, it was supposed to be. With Logan's band playing a critical gig and Aura's plans for an intimate after-party, Aura knows it will be the most memorable night of her boyfriend's life. She never thought it would be his last.

Logan's sudden death leaves Aura devastated. He's gone.

Well, sort of.

Like everyone born after the Shift, Aura can see and hear ghosts. This mysterious ability has always been annoying, and Aura had wanted nothing more than to figure out why the Shift happened so she can undo it. But not with Logan’s violet-hued spirit still hanging around. Because dead Logan is almost as real as ever. Almost.

ShiftIt doesn't help that Aura’s new friend Zachary is so understanding—and so very alive. His support means more to Aura than she cares to admit.

As Aura's relationships with the dead and the living grow ever complicated, so do her feelings for Logan and Zachary. Each holds a piece of Aura's heart…and clues to the secret of the Shift.

The sequel, SHIFT, coming May 3, 2011 is now available for pre-order.

  1. I would love to give this prize to my sister. She just had a baby (that makes number 3) and their budget has been really tight. They are so concerned with making sure the kids have a nice Christmas that she won't be getting anything. She loves to read and I have raved about this book to her. So it would be a nice surprise.


  2. I would love to give this to my sister. She once asked me to send her books, i guess this is the right time to surprise her :)
