YA DASH + ARC Giveaway for THE ROW


Welcome readers! :) 

I'm happy to be participating in the YA DASH this year! I had a blast putting together my mood board for THE ROW and it only made me more excited for it's release. So, here it is along with the description:




A death sentence. A family torn apart. One girl’s hunt for the truth.

Seventeen-year-old Riley Beckett is no stranger to prison. Her father is a convicted serial killer on death row who has always maintained that he was falsely accused. Riley has never missed a single visit with her father. She wholeheartedly believes that he is innocent. 

Then, a month before the execution date, Riley’s world is rocked when, in an attempt to help her move on, her father secretly confesses to her that he actually did carry out the murders. He takes it back almost immediately, but she cannot forget what he’s told her. Determined to uncover the truth for her own sake, she discovers something that will forever change everything she’s believed about the family she loves. 

Here are some quotes from a stellar review from School Library Journal:

"Johansson has established herself as a go-to writer of emotionally resonant teen thrillers."

"Amid the high-stakes plot twists, the author keeps Riley and Jordan grounded in the dark reality of their lives, showing Riley’s despair and fear as well as her admirable tenacity."

"VERDICT This timely story, evocative of the Serial podcast and Netflix’s Making a Murderer, will also appeal to reluctant readers and fans of April Henry and Barry Lyga."

THE ROW releases on October 11, 2016. It's available for pre-order now. If you'd like to pre-order it, you can follow the links on Macmillan's page.
