Hello readers, friends old and new! If you’re here, you’re probably on the hunt for a special, mystery number. Or maybe this talk of mystery numbers is new to you, and you feel as if you stumbled upon a secret society in the deep confines of the internet. In either case, read on!

The YA Scavenger Hunt or YASH is a bi-annual event was first organized by author Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonus material from their favorite authors – and a chance to win a ton of FREE BOOKS! This blog is a part of team red, and there are three other teams, meaning FOUR grand prizes to win. AND a personal giveaway at the bottom of this post!

On each blog, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author, you also get a clue for the hunt. Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize: one lucky winner will receive one book from each author on the hunt in my team! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 120 hours!

So yes, there is a SUPER SECRET, completely new short story in the Starstruck universe currently on one of the blogs featured in the red team!

Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are FOUR contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the RED TEAM… but there is also a blue team, a gold team, and a purple team for a chance to win a whole different set of books!

If you’d like to find out more about the hunt, see links to all the authors participating, and see the full list of prizes up for grabs, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page.

Please welcome tonight’s guest: Author KT Mather!

KT Mather grew up in Alaska with a respect for two things—nature and the power of a good story to change everything (or at least something). She was a high school English teacher and soccer coach for years and misses being around teenagers’ humor and authenticity. She lives in Vermont with her family, where she writes, hosts the podcast “Out of Curiosity with kt mather,” serves in local office, and is busy converting her lawn into an edible forest and pollinator garden.

Rage Is a Wolf

Sixteen-year-old Elaine Archer thinks the Earth might really be screwed. And she’s pretty sure sitting in a classroom memorizing Civil War battle dates isn’t gonna save it.

Desperate to do something meaningful, but not sure it will do any good, Elaine talks her moms into letting her drop out of school to write a novel. Spending her days circling Chicago in search of her story, she discovers a universe of people and ideas she’d never have encountered behind the doors of D.B. High. As her understanding of the complexity of the world and relationships deepens, so does her fear that she might not have what it takes to make any difference at all.

Rage Is a Wolf is the biting and hilarious story of a teenage girl trying to answer life’s questions—Is not telling your best friend something the same as lying to her? Can you have a crush on more than one person? Why is the movie Aliens so perfect? What’s the point of sex? What’s the point of life? Can one person change the world? Can a story? Can love?

Check out Kt Maher’s website to preorder and listen to sections of her book!

And now… the exclusive content: Feast your eyes on the limited edition cover!
