Amy Dominy and I
I'm thrilled to welcome TEAM CURLS to my blog! Amy is one of the nicest authors I have met and it's the only thing that has kept me from completely fan girling every time I seen her. See Amy gives us swoon worthy guys and great parents. She really does break the YA Mold! When we talked about Worst Blog Tour ever I loved with the idea!
Audition & Subtraction, the newest tween novel by Amy Fellner Dominy (OyMG), has just been released. Amy is celebrating by sharing her WORST moments of middle school. (Why should her characters suffer alone?) In fact, Amy invites you to share your memories too—with a chance to turn your angst into prizes. At the end of the tour, Amy will be giving away 2 PRIZE PACKS, each with a signed hardcover of Audition & Subtraction, book goodies and a $10 iTunes giftcard.
If you’ve seen my author photo, you know I’ve got a ton of curls. Cari can straighten her hair for that sleek and beautiful look, but she can go curly, too. Back in my younger days, I would have been jealous. I wanted straight hair!! Nowadays, I truly love my curls. It’s ironic, but the thing that gets me tons of compliments today, got me nothing but grief back in school.
My huge mop of frizzy hair led to plenty of teasing and name-calling. I wanted to do something fabulous with it, but what? Every hair cut was a disaster, every perm (yes, I tried to control the curls) turned me into the human poodle.
Then, when I was about fourteen, I got a brilliant idea. I would lighten my dark brown hair and create beautiful, tantalizing highlights with a few squirts of Sun In.
Sun In, for those who don’t know, is a product designed to lighten hair naturally—but the results are permanent. I ignored that part and I bought a bottle. I didn’t give myself beautiful golden, sunshiny hair. I gave myself bright, orange hair.
Orange like pumpkin.
Like Ronald McDonald in bad light.
And it took FOREVER to grow out.
That was my worst beauty idea. Thankfully, I grew up and discovered I could work wonders with the right kind of gel and a good hair stylist. And I’ve never EVER tried to add highlights to my hair since.
