Guest Star: Eileen Cook
It’s time for another Guest Star! Our guest this week is Eileen Cook, author of the new release, THE ALMOST TRUTH!
About THE ALMOST TRUTH:
From the author of Unraveling Isobel and The Education of Hailey Kendrick, a smart, romantic novel about a teenage con artist who might be in over her head.
Sadie can’t wait to get away from her backwards small town, her delusional mom, her jailbird dad, and the tiny trailer where she was raised…even though leaving those things behind also means leaving Brendan. Sadie wants a better life, and she has been working steadily toward it, one con at a time.
But when Sadie’s mother wipes out Sadie’s savings, her escape plan is suddenly gone. She needs to come up with a lot of cash—and fast—or she’ll be stuck in this town forever.
With Brendan’s help, she devises a plan—the ultimate con—to get the money. But the more lies Sadie spins, the more she starts falling for her own hoax…and perhaps for the wrong boy. Sadie wanted to change her life, but she wasn’t prepared to have it flipped upside down by her own deception. With her future at stake and her heart on the line, suddenly it seems like she has a lot more than just money to lose….
Praise for Eileen Cook’s books:
“.. enormously appealing and great company throughout this breezy read…..the highest quality—like a gourmet truffle. Cook has whipped up a real treat.” – Kirkus Starred Review
“Thrilling and creepy, super sexy, and so very hilarious.” – Lisa McMann, bestselling author of the Wake trilogy
“Sassy and sly and sweet all at the same time, this book made me laugh out loud.” – Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries and Airhead
In honor of 52 REASONS TO HATE MY FATHER, I’m asking all my guest stars about the worst job they’ve ever had! Here’s what Eileen had to say:
It makes me sad to realize I have many candidates for this question. I’m going to go with the summer I worked at Dairy Queen. The owner had the DQ religion. He LIVED for soft serve. He had zero sense of humor. He would measure our cones to make sure they were exactly the right size/weight. He would lecture us on the right way to dip cones to get the perfect ratio of waxy chocolate covering. In my opinion, if you job involves rolling ice cream in sprinkles you should lighten up.
