Okay, Write Hope is
over at the end of Part One and we have raised an AMAZING $10,351!
I can’t think of enough words to express how wonderful and inspiring the whole thing has been. Thank you to the writers, agents and everyone who donated and all those wonderful people who bid for them. I’ll get to Write Hope Part Two in a mo
One of the items up for grabs was The Lipstick Laws & swag by Amy Holder, which arrived at my house one day before the beginning of my holidays.
“At Penford High School, Britney Taylor is queen bee. She dates whomever she likes, rules over her inner circle of friends like Genghis Khan, and can ruin anyone’s life as easily as snapping her perfectly manicured fingers. Just ask the unfortunate few who have crossed her.
For April Bowers, Britney is also the answer to her prayers. With zero friends and nothing close to a boyfriend, April is so unpopular, kids don’t know she exists. That is, until Britney notices her. One lunch spent at Britney’s table, and April is basking in the glow of popularity.
But Britney’s friendship comes with a price tag.
How much is April willing to pay?”
Confession time – until the pack arrived there was no lipstick in my house* – and hand on heart this is not the kind of story I’d normally pick up. Which is why I wanted it (yep I’m peculiar). I’m trying to broaden my horizens.
Lipstick Laws is fun and to me fascinating because “High School” is a world away the Orientierungstufe and Secondary School** I attended… and yes all things American are filtering into our school system (my niece had a prom last year, which was weird) but it’s still a different world. A very precarious world by what I’ve learned (not just from Lipstick Laws) but nonetheless fascinating.
I really enjoyed The Lipstick Laws, so much so that I’m going to add Amy Holder to my author list and will look for other titles. Any recommendations?
Write Hope Part Two.

*I think there might have been one my sister-in-law gave me 8 years ago but the closest thing I had was cherry chapstick I bought in Las Vegas
** The difference between German and English schools was enough as it is.
