Reading Wednesday: The Blonde of the Joke - Bennett Madison
I received a galley of The Blonde of the Joke before I left for Book Expo--I'm now reading it. I have not read much of it, But I am loving it this far!
I decided it was time to put down the BEA books and jump into my "To Be Read Pile" -- Poor Bennett, I'm sure I bugged him to death about this book.
I'm glad I cam across it again so I could jump into it--expect a review soon! : )
What people are saying about the book:
"A delightfully wicked book—a supersexy celebration of good girls gone bad, and a haunting ode to teenage rebellion." -- James St. James, author of Freak Show
"The Blonde of the Joke turns a dull suburban landscape into a mythical place, full of treasure, inner demons, and transformations. Bennett Madison is one of the best YA writers around and this is his sharpest book to date." -- Maureen Johnson, author of Suite Scarlett and 13 Little Blue Envelopes
"This wickedly funny novel has it all—style, depth, bite, and a punch line you won’t be able to forget." -- Sarah Mlynowski, co-author of How to be Bad
