Blog Tour: My Invented Life and giveaway

This book was given to me by Crossroads Review and Tours.
                  With Roz and Eva everything becomes a contest—who can snag the best role in the school play, have the cutest boyfriend, pull off the craziest prank. Still, they’re as close as sisters can be. Until Eva deletes Roz from her life like so much junk e-mail for no reason that Roz understands. Now Eva hangs out with the annoyingly petite cheerleaders, and Roz fantasizes about slipping bovine growth hormone into their Gatorade.

Roz has a suspicion about Eva. In turn, Eva taunts Roz with a dare, which leads to an act of total insanity. Drama geeks clamor for attention, Shakespearean insults fly, and Roz steals the show in Lauren Bjorkman’s hilarious debut novel

My Review:
                     I did enjoy this book. I found the character of Roz very straight forward . I like how she know who she is and not afraid to admit it. I also found the supporting cast of charcters a nice mix of boys and girls that help shape Roz into the person she is. The drama in this book is realalistic because we are dealing with teens. I found this a fast read with many points that made me laugh to myself.  I found myself drawn to the story because of the relationship with her older sister and why they were no longer as close as they had been. This was a jouney for Roz to discover what happened and why. It was exciting to see Roz figure it all out.

Lets Meet The Author:

Lauren Bjorkman


I grew up on a sailboat, sharing the tiny forecastle with my sister and the sail bags. Against all odds, we are still friends. We started sailing in California and ended in Argentina. My favorite stops along the way were Costa Rica, Panama, Isla Providencia, Key West, the Azores, the Canary Islands, and Brazil.

During our voyages, my sister drew beautiful paper dolls for the both of us. We sewed amazing wardrobes for our stuffed animals. We became excellent swimmers and beach combers. We made up new lyrics for old songs. Canned food dominated our meals on crossings, so we really appreciated fresh fruit when we came into port. I dreamed of ice cream on the open ocean.

We kept up with school through a program called Calvert out of Maryland.

My dad read to us at night by the light of a kerosene lamp. Since then, I've always loved stories and wanted to write my own.

I live in Taos, New Mexico with my husband, and two sons. We often see coyotes outside our window.
