A Song For Julia Book Blast + $50 Amazon Gift Card

I haven't been reading as much as I want. It seems my time is continually being sucked up by other things. I really need to make a shift!

So while I think about how to do that, wont you have fun with A Song for Julia Book Blast + $50 Amazon Gift Card.

A Song for Julia (Thompson Sisters)

Everyone should have something to rebel against. Crank Wilson left his South Boston home at sixteen to start a punk band and burn out his rage at the world. Six years later, he's still at odds with his father, a Boston cop, and doesn't ever speak to his mother.

The only relationship that really matters is with his younger brother, but watching out for Sean can be a full-time job. The one thing Crank wants in life is to be left the hell alone to write his music and drive his band to success. Julia Thompson left a secret behind in Beijing that exploded into scandal in Washington, DC, threatening her father's career and dominating her family's life. Now, in her senior year at Harvard, she's haunted by a voice from her past and refuses to ever lose control of her emotions again, especially when it comes to a guy.

When Julia and Crank meet at an anti-war protest in Washington in the fall of 2002, the connection between them is so powerful it threatens to tear everything apart.

The Thompson Sisters A Song for Julia is part of a series of novels centering around the Thompson sisters. Though the books center on the same family, they are standalone novels and can be read in any order. From the author of the Amazon bestselling author of Just Remember to Breathe, A Song for Julia has garnered more than 350 five-star reviews on Goodreads and been described by reviewers as "EXQUISITE. Best book of 2012," "Absolutely breathtaking story," and "Absolutely heart wrenching."

  1. I was a goody student for every year but one. That one rebel year was my downfall and it took a lot of work to get back on the right track.

  13. It depends, I guess, but I wasn't really a solid goody or rebel. I was a "goody" when it came to my favorite subjects/teachers, and I was sometimes a careless and awkward student towards those I didn't like.

  36. I don't think I could completely classify myself as either as a teen but closer to a goody two shoes because there was little opportunity to go anywhere or do anything much back then.
