Book Signing: Jenny Torres Sanchez

Today is the official release day for The Downside of Being Charlie by Jenny Torres Sanchez. If you guys haven't checked it out yet here is the summary:

The Downside of Being Charlie
Charlie is handed a crappy senior year. Despite losing thirty pounds over the summer, he still gets called “Chunks” Grisner. What’s worse, he has to share a locker with the biggest Lord of the Rings freak his school has ever seen. He also can’t figure out whether Charlotte VanderKleaton, the beautiful strawberry lip-glossed new girl, likes him the way he likes her. Oh, and then there’s his mom. She’s disappeared—again—and his dad won’t talk about it.
Somewhere between the madness, Charlie can at least find comfort in his one and only talent that just might get him out of this life-sucking place. But will he be able to hold his head above water in the meantime?

Let me tell you a little secret. Living in my area is absolutely no fun when it comes to book signings. There are never any signings, so when I heard about Jenny's signing I was so excited! I went with my friend and we had a blast. Jenny was incredibly nice and it was great to meet her.

My book signed (something rare in my neck of the woods):

You guys can find out more information about Jenny and her book here, and you guys can even read the first chapter. It's been getting great reviews so don't forget to pick up your copy soon!

  1. This book seems interesting, but the real reason why I want to read it is to find out why sharing a locker with the words biggest Lord of the Rings freak would be so bad. I would have loved that back in high school!
