"Mix it up with a DJ spinning in our Courtyard for DJ Night – as in Danielle Joseph, author of Shrinking Violet (Simon & Schuster, $11), the new YA novel that mixes its own groove. High school senior Teresa Adams is so painfully shy that she dreads speaking to anyone in the hallways or getting called on in class. But in the privacy of her bedroom with her iPod in hand, she rocks out -- doing mock broadcasts for Miami's hottest FM radio station, which happens to be owned by her stepfather. When a slot opens up at The SLAM, Tere surprises herself by blossoming behind the mike into confident, sexy Sweet T -- and to everyone's shock, she's a hit! Even Gavin, the only guy in school who she dares to talk to, raves about the mysterious DJ's awesome taste in music. But when The SLAM announces a songwriting contest -- and a prom date with Sweet T as the grand prize -- Sweet T's dream could turn into Tere's worst nightmare."
As always we'll be there, or at least Lorena will.
