So, yesterday was a pretty great day.
Got my ARCs. Yeah. These guys.
(Still finding it hard to stop staring at and/or petting them. I know you get it.)
Now that my ARCs exist, I want to share the very kind words two of my favorite authors had to say about POINTE! Their novels—their debut novels, in particular—have been such an inspiration to me, and in addition to being insanely talented writers, they happen to be two of the coolest, nicest ladies on the Internet. Here's what they had to say about my book:
"A brave and resonant debut that is as captivating as it is heartbreaking. Brandy Colbert has given us a portrait of life after trauma that is skillfully rendered, raw, and unflinching. This novel haunts me."
—Nina LaCour, author of Hold Still
"POINTE is an impressively written and affecting portrait of loss and self-forgiveness. Brandy Colbert's debut is beautiful, sharp and memorable."
—Courtney Summers, author of Cracked Up to Be
Flattered doesn't even begin to describe how I feel about these blurbs. Surreal seems like a good starting point.
And because I am so excited about receiving my galleys, I'm giving away a signed copy of POINTE to a reader, along with one copy each of Courtney and Nina's debuts. These are two of my favorite books of all time, and I think everyone needs to read them. Want to know a little more about them? Click on the Goodreads links above the covers!

And if you want to learn more about POINTE, see below:
Theo is better now.
She's eating again, dating guys who are almost appropriate, and well on her way to becoming an elite ballet dancer. But when her oldest friend, Donovan, returns home after spending four long years with his kidnapper, Theo starts reliving memories about his abduction—and his abductor.
Donovan isn't talking about what happened, and even though Theo knows she didn't do anything wrong, telling the truth would put everything she's been living for at risk. But keeping quiet might be worse.
