The Elevensies: The Pull of Gravity by Gae Polisner

I'm sure most of you have heard about this live journal of 2011 Debut Authors. They express, "The Elevensies is a Live Journal community of YA and Middle Grade authors whose first books come out in 2011. It's a place to hang out, make friends and share the journey to publication with each other, with fellow writers, and with interested readers. Sharing and support are key to all we do."

I am excited about a particular release called, The Pull of Gravity by Gae Polisner which comes out on May 10, 2011 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR). Gae has been featured on their site where she gives us a sneak peek into her day of writing, go check it out here.

Never heard of The Pull of Gravity? I've added the summary below and if it interests you, add it to your GoodReads! :)

Summary: Nick Gardner is having a rough year. His brother’s a jerk, his big fat dad has hit the road, and his sort-of best friend is dying. When a feverish hallucination puts Nick on a collision course with a water tower, a television news crew, and one Jaycee Amato, a girl with Siberian Husky eyes, his whole life begins to change. Together, they set out on a secret journey to keep a promise to their dying friend. Will they accomplish what they set out for, or merely discover the beauty of Steinbeck, the crappy truth about plans and a few small facts about gravity? The Pull of Gravity is a coming-of-age story about first love, friendship, and the true nature of family.

I want to add it on GoodReads here!

Eleni, thank you so much! You know how excited I am that you are excited about my book. :)

And all you reading, please check out the other Elevensies there! The "Day in the Writing Life" is a really fun feature. And, in some cases, hilariously funny.
