Posted August 4, 2012 by Christy / 0 Comments

Format – e-ARC from Netgalley Publisher- Harlequin Teen Pages- 304 Publication Date- July 24, 2012 Buy this Book- Amazon  From Goodreads: THE BIGGEST STORY OF MY LIFE COULD BE HOW IT ENDS It’s my turn to run a “Campus News” crew, and I’ve put together a team that can break stories wide open.
