2015 Most Anticipated ......... Proof Of Forever

My next selection is filled with summer, friendships, and secrets. It's a perfect book to kick off your summer reading and certainly has the potential to be bittersweet.

Just check out this Goodreads synopsis and you'll immediately wish it was June so you could read this by the pool.
BEFORE: It was the perfect summer of first kisses, skinny-dipping, and bonfires by the lake. Joy, Tali, Luce, and Zoe knew their final summer at Camp Okahatchee would come to an end, but they swore they’d stay friends.

AFTER: Now, two years later, their bond has faded along with those memories.

THEN: That is, until the fateful flash of a photo booth camera transports the four of them back in time, to the summer they were fifteen—the summer everything changed.

NOW: The girls must recreate the past in order to return to the present. As they live through their second-chance summer, the mystery behind their lost friendship unravels, and a dark secret threatens to tear the girls apart all over again.

ALWAYS: Summers end. But this one will change them forever.
I love novels about friendships. Add in this secret that could tear them apart and I am sold. I hope the friendship aspect is really strong and that romance is minimal because it's been far too long since I've read one of those.

I got Lexa to share some details about Proof Of Forever, as well as what ingredient would be in an ice cream based off her novel.

1 Describe Proof Of Forever in Twitter format (140 characters or less)

Four estranged friends are given a second chance to make things right, by reliving the summer they were 15... the summer everything changed.

2 If someone were to make an ice cream flavor for your book, what might be included?

Swirls of cotton candy that taste like memories.

3 Can you share a secret about your book (either it's world, it's characters, or something that helped inspire the story)?

Beyond being a friendship story, the book is really about growing up and learning that sometimes the only thing you can actually change is yourself and how you see things.

4 If you could travel to anywhere, in any time period, when and where would you want to travel? 

Perhaps I’d have tea with Chekhov in late 1800s Moscow and talk about his early ideas for The Seagull or some such. I’m not sure we’d really get along. The tea would probably be too smoky and he would pontificate a lot about how the world is going to crap, but then we would drink vodka and chase it with pickles and that would be fun.

5 What three things do you need while revising?

Caffeine, confidence, and a friend to help me see the big picture.

6 If possible, please share the first line of Proof Of Forever.

Just do it.

I want to think Lexa for taking the time to answer these questions for me. If possible, I am looking forward to reading it even more now.

Proof Of Forever is released June 2nd, 2015 but you can pre-order it now

Be sure to check back later on during the event for a chance to win a copy of Finding Paris (or any of my featured titles).

You can follow Lexa Hillyer on Twitter, visit the Paper Lantern Lit website, and learn more about the book from the publisher website.
