Book Blitz: Afterparty by Ann Stampler Plus Giveaway!!

Hello all!!! I am super excited to be taking part in the Afterparty Book Blitz today. There are tons of fantastic blogs taking part, all with super fun answers to questions and random lists, so make sure to check out all of the awesomeness!! 


A toxic friendship takes a dangerous turn in this riveting novel from the author of Where It Began.

Emma is tired of being good. Always the dutiful daughter to an overprotective father, she is the antithesis of her mother—whose name her dad won’t even say out loud. That’s why meeting Siobhan is the best thing that ever happened to her…and the most dangerous. Because Siobhan is fun and alluring and experienced and lives on the edge. In other words, she’s everything Emma isn’t.

And it may be more than Emma can handle.

Because as intoxicating as her secret life may be, when Emma begins to make her own decisions, Siobhan starts to unravel. It’s more than just Dylan, the boy who comes between them. Their high-stakes pacts are spinning out of control. Elaborate lies become second nature. Loyalties and boundaries are blurred. And it all comes to a head at the infamous Afterparty, a bash where debauchery rages and an intense, inescapable confrontation ends in a plummet from the rooftop...



Special Fun!!

Ann's Pet peeves

1.) Damp clothes
2.) Take-out that arrives late and cold and gooey
3.) Missing the previews at movies
4.) Rudeness
5.) This is in a more serious vein, but I live in a natural disaster wonderland.  Fires, floods, landslides, earthquakes: Welcome to L.A.  And it kills me when people refuse to evacuate when it’s still safe to get out, and then rescue workers – who are having a hard enough time – have to go back in and risk their own lives to save them.

About Ann Stampler:

Ann Stampler was the mild mannered author of literary picture books when she broke out, tore off her tasteful string of pearls, and started writing edgy, contemporary young adult novels set in Los Angeles, where she lives with her husband and writer’s-helper rescue dog – without whose compelling distraction she would have no doubt penned dozens of novels by now.

  1. This sounds like a great book! Thanks for the giveaway.

  2. Ooh I've been seeing a lot of reviews recently for Afterparty and I think they were pretty positive, so my interest in this book has definitely been piqued recently. I love the pet peeves, too, I agree about the damp clothes thing. It's really sticky and uncomfortable and just relatively cold D: Rudeness is always a problem, especially with certain people who can't respect others. Thanks for sharing, Amy! <33

  3. This sounds like it could be good. Thanks for sharing!
