Meet Odd. Audrey “Odd” Ashworth is an exceptionally bright girl with a sympathetic heart. She’s in the top 4% of her class. She’s obsessed with getting into Manhattan School of Music, committed to following the “signs” the universe delivers, and infatuated with her recently deceased best friend’s boyfriend.
Life is a little strange for Odd.
Until she finds her best friend’s diary in her crush’s car, and decides to do the bucket list tucked inside the pages. As Odd seeks closure and a way to honor her friend, she discovers there’s nothing wrong with being a little strange, especially if it helps you discover who you were meant to be. Along the way, Odd falls into trouble, adventure, and finally love.
I write, read, rock out on my yoga mat, report for Publishers Weekly, and write YA. I play well with words and others, and when I’m not reporting, I daydream excessively before putting words on the page. Sometimes they’re jibberish, sometimes they’re honest in a way that makes me feel a little awkweird, but they always come with a message of hope and love.
More often than not, I’ve got my nose in a book (occasionally while inside my book fort), because inside story is where the magic waits.
But you don’t have to take my word for it.
