That's right, you can go pick up this talented authors second book immediately! Check it out!
REMEMBER THE PACT. OR ELSE . . .
Five-foot eleven. Freckled. Flat s a surfboard. Peyton Grady sees her role on the varsity cheer squad as the only thing keeping her off the social sidelines at wealthy Beachwood Preparatory Academy. It's her umbilical cord to cool -- and it's constantly in danger of getting cut.
As a base, it's Peyton's duty to be stepped on -- literally -- by cheer queen Lexie Court. So when Lexie hatches a fierce hazing campaign against the frumpy new girl, Peyton has no choice but to support her flier. Soon the pranks become sadistically cruel, even criminal. Suddenly, Peyton has more to lose than her new-found Alpha celebrity. Will she gamble her entire future for "the good of the squad"?
"Blubber for the 21rst century. Debbie Reed Fischer's sizzling take on girl hazing and cheer pressure mixes the perfect ratio of humor to anger for a compelling, un-put-downable read."
---Alex Flinn, author of Breathing Underwater and Beastly
Of course, we had a couple of questions for her regarding second books...
2k8: How does it feel to have a second book coming out?
Debbie: I feel grateful. And busy! The whole experience is surreal. I realize I'm in a unique situation to have two books released in the same year. It happened because both my books sold within a few weeks of each other, each to a different publisher.
2k8: What was different about writing this book as opposed to the first?
Debbie: Actually, I wrote Swimming with the Sharks first. I sold my second book, Braless in Wonderland, on a partial submission, and was finishing it up as Sharks was being submitted to publishers. Even though Braless was released first, Sharks is really my first book.
Congrats on your second book, Debbie! Many happy sales!
