Book Blitz + Giveaway! Afterparty by Ann Stampler

About AFTERPARTY:A toxic friendship takes a dangerous turn in this riveting novel from the author of Where It Began.

Emma is tired of being good. Always the dutiful daughter to an overprotective father, she is the antithesis of her mother—whose name her dad won’t even say out loud. That’s why meeting Siobhan is the best thing that ever happened to her…and the most dangerous. Because Siobhan is fun and alluring and experienced and lives on the edge. In other words, she’s everything Emma isn’t.

And it may be more than Emma can handle.

Because as intoxicating as her secret life may be, when Emma begins to make her own decisions, Siobhan starts to unravel. It’s more than just Dylan, the boy who comes between them. Their high-stakes pacts are spinning out of control. Elaborate lies become second nature. Loyalties and boundaries are blurred. And it all comes to a head at the infamous Afterparty, a bash where debauchery rages and an intense, inescapable confrontation ends in a plummet from the rooftop...

About Ann Stampler:Ann Stampler was the mild mannered author of literary picture books when she broke out, tore off her tasteful string of pearls, and started writing edgy, contemporary young adult novels set in Los Angeles, where she lives with her husband and writer’s-helper rescue dog – without whose compelling distraction she would have no doubt penned dozens of novels by now.

And a little extra something from Ann herself!

Things that bring a smile to your face (in which I reveal myself as a raindrops on roses & whiskers on kittens kind of girl)
1.) When scrolling through Netflix, I come upon the perfect movie to watch right then.
2.) When the book I’ve been wanting to read forever is finally released and there it is on the shelf at the bookstore
3.) The dessert menu in a restaurant that does classic desserts – nothing involving crumbled up Oreos or any foodstuff referred to as lava that works with a gummy worm chaser
4.) Beaches with good sand and good waves and perhaps a bar with a roof made out of palm leaves
5.) Oh all right, cute animal videos. That Japanese penguin that waddles to the fish market wearing a tiny backpack. Baby hedgehogs being cradled on their backs. Anything to do with Christian the lion. That toddler who naps with his French bull. Whoever invented Emergency Kitten deserves a Nobel Prize.
