Hello, friends! It’s ya girl, back at it again with another blog tour–this time for a diverse YA anthology that is all about games, from board games to sports to video games and more. If you’ve ever gotten a little too competitive, or if you’ve ever felt a deep and abiding love for your game of choice, this book is for you. I can’t wait to read it (seriously, it has some real rockstar authors on that lineup), but in the meantime, check out this post and the rest of the stops on this tour for more info on this book!
A charming and inclusive YA anthology all about games–from athletic sports to board games to virtual reality–from editor Laura Silverman and an all-star cast of contributors.
From the slightly fantastical to the utterly real, light and sweet romance to tales tinged with horror and thrills, Game On is an anthology that spans genre and style. But beneath each story is a loving ode to competition and games perfect for anyone who has ever played a sport or a board game, picked up a video game controller, or rolled a twenty-sided die.
A manhunt game is interrupted by a town disappearing beneath the players’ eyes. A puzzle-filled scavenger hunt emboldens one college freshman to be brave with the boy she’s crushing on. A series of summer nights full of card games leads a boy to fall for a boy who he knows is taken. And a spin the bottle game could end a life-long friendship.
Fifteen stories, and fifteen unforgettable experiences that may inspire readers to start up that Settlers of Catan game again.
The other hosts on this tour have been hard at work coming up with more content about this book. For reviews, mood boards, an interview, pretty pictures, and more, check out the full tour schedule HERE!
