Perfect Cover Jennifer Lynn Barnes

1188294Bayport Highschool is like a classic teen movie high school. You have the jocks and their jockish ways and the nerds with their nerdish ways and then there's a cheerleaders. The girls everyone looks up to but no one will cross. These girls who dominate the lunch room also happen to be spy's working for the government to take down a certain agency.

Enter Toby Klein. She has recently transferred over to Bayport. She was also recruited by the cheerleaders. Not that she had much of a choice. Toby Klein has officially embarked one her adventures with the girliest-underage-butt-kicking cheerleaders.

Overall it was a good. I recommend it to anyone who would enjoy reading it.

Camp NaNoWriMo

Camp NaNoWriMo Logo
With spring around the corner, it's time to roll up your sleeves and gather the tools you'll need to plant your new story ideas. (We recommend a hefty bag of plot fertilizer, a watering can's worth of your favorite beverage, and lots of snacks to lure excess plot bunnies from your planter box.)
Wherever you live, wherever you are—whether you’re in the world's largest city or a suburban neighborhood or miles from your nearest neighbor—we invite you to nurture your writing project at Camp NaNoWriMo this April.
At Camp NaNoWriMo, you can: 

Plant any seed.  

Camp NaNoWriMo is open to all writing projects. Whether you want to write a novel, edit a close-to-final draft, or tackle a script, some short stories, or a nonfiction work, Camp NaNoWriMo welcomes any seed of inspiration. 

Cultivate community. 

Camp NaNoWriMo offers 12-person online writing groups, which we call cabins. Meet other writers by being sorted into a cabin based on your age, genre, or goals.
Already have a group of fellow writers? Create a private cabin.

Grow creative confidence.

Camp NaNoWriMo lets you set your own word-count goal. Committing to writing every day in April is the first step to establishing an everyday creative habit throughout the year. Afterall, NaNoWriMo isn't just a one-month challenge. It's a year-round call to embrace that blank page. 
Beginning on April 1, let your stories take root at Camp NaNoWriMo.
