Edited: This hunt has now ended. Thanks for playing!

Welcome to the Fall 2018 YA Scavenger Hunt! At this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author, you also get a clue for the hunt. Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize–one lucky winner will receive one book from each author on the hunt in my team! (THE GREEN TEAM!!) But play fast: this contest will only be online for 5 days!




Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are seven contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the GREEN TEAM — but there is also RED, BLUE, GOLD, ORANGE, PINK, & PURPLE teams for a chance to win a whole different set of signed books!

Welcome, Patricia B. Tighe!

Today, I am hosting Patricia B. Tighe on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!

The award-winning YA romance author of THE ZONE series and the SECOND CHANCES series, Patricia B. Tighe lives in West Texas with her husband and dogs. She’s a sucker for romance and loves to put her characters in sticky situations to see what happens. When she’s not writing, she eats way too much pizza, drinks way too much coffee, and watches way too much NFL football.

Even after a couple of months, sixteen-year-old Amanda Bryson is still nursing a broken heart. And now her parents are forcing her to attend the traditional summer family vacation in New Mexico. She’d much rather be home taking care of her sick great-grandmother than doing chores and dealing with her brother and his friends.

But when they arrive, Amanda learns that the studio of local potter and friend Cady Sanders has been hit by taggers. Not only that, but the older woman broke her foot chasing them off. Now Amanda has the chance to give back by helping out—with the added perk of no thoughts of her ex, or family chores, or obnoxious brothers.

There’s only one problem. Cady’s nephew, Kyle Young, is staying with her for the summer. He’s surly, ridiculously cute, and clearly doesn’t want her around. That makes two of them. But as Amanda and Kyle compete for Cady’s attention, they find they have a lot in common, including a growing attraction. But is Amanda ready to date again? Or will Kyle, despite his intense gazes, turn out to be just as jerky as her ex?

Hi, everybody! In my YA romance, AMANDA VS. THE UNIVERSE, both Amanda and Kyle have been dumped in the past few months.

I hope you see a few of your favorites on this list.

2. Head Above Water—Avril Lavigne
3. Remind Me to Forget—Kygo & Miguel
