Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

{May 14, 2011}   First Stop on the ARC Tour: GONE, GONE, GONE by Hannah Moskowitz

So, last night I was extremely excited because the much anticipated novel GONE, GONE, GONE by Hannah Moskowitz came in the mail!  I’m the first stop on the ARC Tour, which will extend into April of 2012 (when the book is published), and since our ARC Tour reviews won’t start being published on our blogs until February 2012 (though we will be posting the reviews to Goodreads and the like), I thought I’d show you all some of the awesomeness that is Hannah Moskowitz:

The envelope made me giggle. 

I love, love, LOVE the cover!

Very cool!



As the reviewers of this copy of GONE, GONE, GONE, our job is to write all over the novel, add photos, drawings, etc., so that when it gets back to Hannah, it’s a highly personalized, beautiful copy that proves its traveled the whole United States.  Hannah got the ball rolling for all of us reviewers:



Isn’t it great?  I couldn’t believe it when I opened the novel!  It’s full of Hannah’s musings and vital information that readers wouldn’t otherwise know, and I’m honored to get the first look!



And there’s so much more:









So, what’s this novel about, you might ask?

It’s a year after 9/11. Sniper shootings throughout the D.C. area have everyone on edge, trying to make sense of the random acts of violence. Meanwhile, Craig and Lio are just trying to make sense of their lives.

Craig’s crushing on quiet, distant Lio, and preoccupied with what it meant when Lio kissed him…and if he’ll do it again…and if kissing Lio will help him finally get over his ex-boyfriend, Cody.

Lio feels most alive when he’s with Craig. He forgets about his broken family, his dead brother, and the messed up world. But being with Craig means being vulnerable, and Lio will have to decide whether love is worth the risk.

You need to add this book to your To Be Read pile stat!





THIS IS JUST TOO COOL!  So, now, if you will excuse me… I’ve got a novel to read and mark up!

You’re so lucky! I’ve been part of several ARC tours and seeing this ARC has several personalized touches from the author, I’m trying not to be too Green with envy!
