Secrets and Secrets and More Secrets, Oh My!

It is blog tour time again!! And I am so excited to present Heather Duffy-Stone's This Is What I Want To Tell You!! A few months ago I got to read the first chapter of this book and am so excited to read the rest! It is from a small publisher called FLUX and if you are unfamiliar with them, they generally serve a niche market, but they have a stellar reputation for putting out amazing books! This one, will be one of them!

A bit about This Is What I Want To Tell You:

Fraternal twins Nadio and Noelle share a close connection—and as Noelle’s best friend since they were five, Keeley Shipley fit perfectly into their world. But everything changes after Keeley spends the summer before junior year at Oxford. When Keeley returns, Nadio falls in love with her. Noelle, ripped apart by resentment, sees her as an ungrateful rich girl. But Keeley has a painful story that she can’t tell yet. As Nadio and Keeley hide their romance, Noelle dives into something of her own—a destructive affair with an older boy.

Beautifully presented by dual narrators in a haunting stream of memories, this is the deeply moving story of how secrets can consume a friendship—and how love can heal it.

*looks right, looks left* Also, there some cool tattoos in it.:)

And a bit about Heather who is lovely and wonderful! (And has this gorgeous curly hair that is, of course, totally natural.:))

Heather Duffy-Stone writes stories and essays that are mostly inspired by high school—either her own or someone else’s. This Is What I Want to Tell You is her first novel. She has lived in Vermont, England, Los Angeles, rural New York and Rome, Italy. For now she cooks, sleeps, explores, writes and teaches in Brooklyn, New York.

And now for our Feasty Five with Heather!!

AP: What kind of soda does (would) your MC drink?

HDS: Probably none. Coffee with milk.

AP: What is your MC's favorite kind of flower? How about yours?

HDS: I think we all love orchids. So complicated…

AP: *grin* Orchids? Hmmm, why does that seem familiar???;) Does your MC believe in magic? Do you?

HDS: Noelle doesn’t, but I wish she did. Nadio might, but he would never admit it. Do I? Sadly, no.

AP: I love that answer. Superman or Batman?

HDS: Batman. He’s so dark…

AP: Mmm, dark, eh? Give us one line from your book. You don't even have to give it context.:)

HDS: “What about the way being left out of love can wreck you?”

AP: *sigh* Can you guys see why I'm so excited about this book?!?!? Go and check it out! Or buy it! Or whatever, but find it and read it!
