Hey HB's! We're coming in hot after 2 weeks of being away from each other while Erin was traveling. And we've got 99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne! It's her second novel and it's just as quirky, funny, beautiful, and romantic, plus it's packing some extra depth with a heroine on the road to healing and a hero who's trying not to buckle under the pressure the world puts on him. Childhood friends! Tiny dogs! Sugar addiction! Fortune telling Grandma! Contemporary WERVE! It's got everything.
Erin's EPIC first meeting with Sally Thorne.
Melody: Get yourself a big change if you're feeling like you're in a rut. This haircut was everything I needed and more.
Erin: Read the Behind the Book Essay in this novel. Sally Thorne had to start over from scratch in the face of The Hating Game's huge, unexpected success and she wrote this book with her sweat and tears and worry and above all, her insane talent and voice. She uses this essay to inspire readers to finish whatever impossible thing they've started because "whether it's a success or a failure, no one can take your The End prize away from you."
Brittany B, you are a Nereid, a sea nymph who represents all of the best parts of the ocean. Your personality is kind as a helpful current, your intellect as bountiful as an untouched coral reef, your heart as deep and wide as the Mariana Trench, and your wit as quick as a darting fish. People should know not to mess with you, though, because you've got riptides and crashing waves enough to protect you and everyone you love. Nereids are represented by beautiful maidens and girl, you got that going on, too.
