This week I am spotlighting My Totally Awkward Supernatural Crush by Laura Toffler-Corrie. I got this ARC from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group. I have to admit that I was attracted by the title. Here is the description of the August 20 release:
Jenna Bloom is just an average middle school student until her family takes her to her least favorite restaurant for her birthday, where she meets Cowpoke Luke, her waiter and one true love. Oh, and he also happens to be an angel. Jenna can't believe that Luke could actually be interested in her, and yet he is! Unfortunately he's got a demonic foe named Adam who could potentially complicate matters, and when the two boys have a big showdown at the local community theater's performance of Fiddler on the Roof, Jenna is right in the middle of it all.Beginning:
I'm babysitting David Lipinski, next-door neighbor and demon-child extraordinaire, when he crawls out onto the roof of his house.Friday 56:
"I just love salad, don't you?" I ask stupidly, grabbing a plate and piling it up. "It's so crunchy. And roughage is good for your intestines."
