I am beyond excited to announce that my wonderful critique partner’s first book, Class of 98, is now available! If you’re a fan of a romantic comedy with a lot of heart, this is a must-have.
I’ve seen this story develop from the very beginning. And while I’ve read it several times, I’ve loved it with each and every read-through. The characters are funny and relatable, the story unique with a fresh spin on time travel, and who doesn’t love a good Titanic reference? Seriously, if you grew up in the 90s, you’ll find a lot to reminisce about as you read this story about two adults who get sucked back to their senior year of high school.
Here’s the Goodreads synopsis for Class of 98:
Jackie Dunn and Matt Stewart barely knew each other in high school, back when she was a blue-haired alterna-kid and he was a preppy jock. High school rules dictated they’d never hang out, or sit at the same lunch table, or God forbid, date.
But when a weird storm transports them from their ten-year reunion back to senior year, they have to work together to figure out a way to get back to 2008.
Stuck in high school, Jackie and Matt agree to tough it out. They agree to do everything exactly as they remember, even though that means staying with the boyfriend Jackie knows will betray her, or playing nice with the girl that will someday be Matt’s ex-wife. Soon, they come to rely on one other, even become friends.
Jackie’s just starting to get used to curfews and term papers again, when Matt hits her with the biggest surprise of all: he’s fallen in love with her. He’ll change the past however he has to if it means a future with Jackie. But Jackie’s terrified they’ll not only alter their lives, but the lives of everyone around them.
During the week of December 10-20, there will be an awesome blog tour for Class of 98. Be sure to stop by on December 10, when I’ll be posting as part of the tour. It will involve some 90s nostalgia, and perhaps a little bit of high school reminiscing.
Writing has a lot of ups and downs, and finding a network of fellow writers who understand you and support you is so important. I count myself lucky not only to have Amber as a critique partner, but that our writing partnership turned into a wonderful friendship. So here’s a toast to the publication of her first book, with the hopes of many more to come!
