|Is she not GORGEOUS????|
Also? She is one helluva writer.
When Jen and I were in NYC for Book Expo, we had a great night with Liz, expanding our usual twosome to become Stennifliz.
Back in 2005, Liz's book Me & Emma hit the bestseller lists, including the coveted New York Times, and I like so many other readers was riveted by this tale of a young girl surviving against terrible odds in rural North Carolina. I lost myself in the story of powerful sisterhood and self-reliance, and the surprise ending hit me right where I live.
The sequel to Me & Emma is coming out next week!
What Happened to My Sister picks up a few months after Me & Emma ends, and is another page-turner. I loved returning to these characters and finally finding out "what happened next"! What Happened to My Sister is available for pre-order now, and you know how I feel about pre-orders!
I cannot recommend this pair of books enough, they are both wonderful summer reads, and I hope you will check them out. And when you are done, you can get all the rest of Liz's books and have an equally wonderful time. You're welcome.
And because Liz is the coolest, she has graciously offered to giveaway a pair of signed books to one lucky winner! So comment below to enter and on Friday I will announce the winner of a signed copy of both Me & Emma and What Happened to My Sister!
Yours in Good Taste,
WOO! I love discovering new authors! Even if I don't win, I'm going to buy both of them, they look great!ReplyDelete
Well, if she is a friend of yours and Jen's count me in. If I don't win, I may have to check them out anyway.ReplyDelete

Love, Love, Love Liz Flock!!! I had the great fortune of hearing her read, in a very intimate home setting of her college roomates home, from her then new book, Me and Emma - Was hooked!! Bought all her books and have read everyone of them and can hardly wait to get my hands on this newest one!!! She is an amazing writer but more importantly she is a wonderful, loving, caring, amazing young woman!ReplyDelete

Ooooo, a new author, can't wait to read her books.ReplyDelete
I read Emma and Me and loved it...can't wait for the new one!ReplyDelete
Saw your recommendation and went looking for a summary on Me & Emma, but instead found a preview of What Happened to My Sister. As soon as it's available, I'm running out to get copies of both. :-)ReplyDelete
"Me and Emma" is definitely one of my favorites. I had to reread it this summer in preparation for the release of "What Happened to My Sister." Elizabeth Flock is one of my favorite authors, I own all of her books and actually make my friends go buy their own copy of them instead of borrowing mine because I don't want to lose them.ReplyDelete
Ooooooooooooo! Another couple of books to read to help me put off classroom planning for an extra couple of days!! SQUEEE! :)ReplyDelete
Thank you for the recommendation, I just ordered both for my Kindle.ReplyDelete
Can't wait to read them. They both sound like great books!ReplyDelete

Thank you for the recommendation! I was referred to this blog by a post on Heather Gudenkauf's Facebook page and I loved her book, "One Breath Away", so I will definitely order these two books next.ReplyDelete
I loved Emma & Me - was completely hooked from the first word and couldn't put the book down until it was done - took my breath away. Can't wait to read the sequel!ReplyDelete

I'll be adding both of these to my must reads.ReplyDelete
Finished "Off The Menu", what a wonderful "love letter" to Charming Suitor. Thank you for sharing the story.
