Sneak A Peek Saturday: VINYL PRINCESS by Yvonne Prinz

It is Saturday and time for SNEAK A PEEK SATURDAY! A feature that allows you see a chapter or two of an upcoming book, or as in this case a quick peak into an upcoming read.

This week's choice is from a local SF bay area of Berkeley author, Yvonne Prinz. Her upcoming novel VINYL PRINCESS is due out in stores December 22 and you can get a look inside HERE

Summer is here, and 16-year-old Allie, a self-professed music geek, is exactly where she wants to be: working full-time at Berkeley’s ultra-cool Bob and Bob Records. There, Allie can spend her days bantering with the street people, talking the talk with the staff, shepherding the uncool bridge-and-tunnel shoppers, all the while blissfully surrounded by music, music, music. It’s the perfect setup for her to develop her secret identity as The Vinyl Princess, author of both a brand-new zine and blog. From the safety of her favourite place on earth, Allie is poised to have it all: love, music and blogging.
Her mother, though, is actually the one getting the dates, and business at Allie’s beloved record store is becoming dangerously slow—not to mention that there have been a string of robberies in the neighbourhood. At least her blog seems to be gaining interest, one vinyl junkie at a time….

I really like the sound of The Vinyl Princess, and that extract is making me think I'm going to enjoy this one. That's an awesome cover too.

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
