Paul McCartney, Prancing Poodles, and Girls Who Play Football: Ask Miranda

My first author interview of the new year is up on Operation Awesome today and it's one you won't want to miss!

Miranda Kenneally, author of the debut YA novel SCORE, has infused the interview with her awesome personality and even included some free verse from her upcoming novel. Here's the blurb:

What girl doesn’t want to be surrounded by gorgeous jocks day in and day out? Jordan Woods isn’t just surrounded by hot guys, though—she leads them as the captain and quarterback on her high school football team. They all see her as one of the guys, and that’s just fine. As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university. But now there’s a new guy in town who threatens her starring position on the team…and has her suddenly wishing to be seen as more than just a teammate.
SCORE, my debut YA novel, will be released by Sourcebooks Fire in December 2011!

You read that right. A girl is the captain of the football team. I can't wait to read how the new guy is taking it!

The cover has been chosen, but we're not allowed to know which one it is yet. How's this for reader eye candy?

Now go check out the interview and ask her some questions of your own in the comments. Miranda will be around to answer questions today (Friday).

  1. What a creative unexpected premise!

  2. That's what I thought! I have high hopes for this book. Not only is it an exciting contemporary premise, but Miranda's writing style is so fun and witty. This book is likely to be a touchdown. Okay, that came out cheesier than I expected.

  3. Wow! That is a really neat plot! I bet it will be great!

  4. ohhh! fun book! Fresh plot! I'll have to read that one.

    FYI, I finally posted my blog award from you today. :0) Sorry it took so long.

  5. Thanks, Christy! I'm on my way to check out your answers!
