WIN a Copy of 'RUMBLE' and an iPod Nano!

8/11/2014

We were looking for the perfect summer read to round out our days of sunshine and free time, and we’re beyond thrilled to have found one that can keep us on the edge of our beach chairs! For any collegiette looking for more than just your typical summer romance read, RUMBLE is the hard-hitting book to beat.

Ellen Hopkins, the New York Times bestselling author of Crank and Trick explores the highly charged landscapes of faith and forgiveness with brilliant sensitivity and emotional resonance in RUMBLE, in stores August 26th. The book trailer (yes, book trailer!) says it all: we can just imagine ourselves glued to the pages, and we already want to know what happens next! 

“There is no God, no benevolent ruler of the earth, no omnipotent grand poobah of countless universes. Because if there was... my little brother would still be fishing or playing basketball instead of fertilizing cemetery vegetation.”

“Matthew Turner doesn’t have faith in anything.

“Not in family—his is a shambles after his younger brother was bullied into suicide. Not in so-called friends who turn their backs when things get tough. Not in some all-powerful creator who lets too much bad stuff happen. And certainly not in some ‘It Gets Better’ psychobabble.

“No matter what his girlfriend Hayden says about faith and forgiveness, there’s no way Matt’s letting go of blame. He’s decided to ‘live large and go out with a huge bang,’ and whatever happens happens. But when a horrific event plunges Matt into a dark, silent place, he hears a rumble . . . a rumble that wakes him up, calling everything he’s ever disbelieved into question.”

Picking your fall semester classes should be a little tough (so many options, so little time!), but picking your autumn wardrobe shouldn’t have to be. It’s called “retail therapy” for a reason!

1. Versatile high-waisted pants

Every fashionista worth her salt knows the value of an awesome pair of high-waisted pants.
