Happy Book Birthday to Kristin Halbrook's SURFACING!

We interrupt our regularly scheduled holiday posts to bring you... A BIRTHDAY! A book birthday, to be exact. Kristin Halbrook's NA novel Surfacing makes its way into the world today. We are so happy for you, Kristin! I know this novel has been in the workshop for a few years, and we are so thrilled to finally hold it in our hands!

And now: about the book.

Katie Sawyer has spent the past three and a half years cultivating the perfect UCLA experience. She has the perfect boyfriend: a football star. She has the perfect social life: she's President of Delta Gamma. But her perfect best friend, Chelsea, just drowned. Worse, the body tumbled out of the closet in Professor Griffin's chem lab. 
Katie's fairy-tale façade hides a past she would like to forget, but Chelsea's death brings every old emotion to the surface. If she's going to move on from her hurts, Katie has to pull her not-so-perfect self together and search out the identity of Chelsea’s killer, even if it means turning to Josh Hunter for help. It's not easy. Josh infuriates her. Once upon a time, they were next door neighbors and best friends. They were confidants. They were even teenagers fumbling and exploring each other in the dark. He knew everything about her. He owned her heart. That was before things changed. Now, secrets are surfacing. Chelsea was seeing someone. And she was pregnant when she died. Katie must come to terms with Chelsea’s other life…and face the fact that she has some secrets of her own. Even if it means letting the past--and Josh Hunter - back into her life. 

Amazon pitches this one as Veronica-Mars-meets-Clueless, which is possibly the best pairing I could imagine.

Lucky for you, Surfacing is here just in time for your last-minute Christmas shopping. Do you know any rabid readers who might need this brand-new baby book in their stocking this year?
