Emma G.’s dream has come true! Her BFF has tickets to a Boyz3000 concert in the Bahamas and Emma’s their #1 FAN. Her parents say she can go…if she pays for part of the trip. WHAT?? How?? The concert’s in 9 days! Determined, she enlists friends, pulls off crazy schemes, and discovers hidden talents that could change her life!

Teaser: Excerpt

     “Boyz3000 will be where?”
     “AT THE HOTEL IN THE BAHAMAS WHERE I AM GOING!!!!” she screamed into my ear. “THEY’RE DOING A CONCERT!!”
     “OH MY GOD!!!” I screamed back. I nearly fell off my chair. “That is so awesome!”
     “I know, but wait! My parents said I could take a friend, and I want to take you!”
     “Me?” I gasped. “You want to take me? To see Boyz3000 in their concert?”
     “Yes, because we both love them and you’re my best friend and…”
     Jenny kept talking, but I was so excited I didn’t hear anything else until she said, “We are leaving next Saturday for the weekend.”
     “No! Next Saturday! The one after this weekend! My parents will pay for the hotel and all. You’ll share my room. You just need to pay for your plane ticket.”
     “Uh-oh,” I said. “How much does that cost?”
     “It’s on a special deal; it’s a hundred and fifty dollars.”
     “Oh. That’s a lot of money. I don’t know if they’ll pay that.”
     “I know it’s a lot, but they have to.”
     “But what if they don’t?”
     Jenny thought for a minute. “Tell them you’ll die if you don’t go.”
     “That kind of thing doesn’t work with my parents.”
     “Well, think of something! ANYTHING!!!” she shrieked. “My dad is trying to get us backstage passes for the Meet and Greet!!!”
     “WHAT?” I gasped. “THE MEET AND GREET???”
     “Yes!!!” Jenny squealed. “We’ll be able to meet them IN PERSON, and probably talk to them too because my dad works in TV and…”
     She was still talking but I didn’t hear anything else. Oh my God!!! Oh my God!!! My heart totally stopped beating at that very moment…

Thanks for hosting!

Thank you so much for hosting this tour. I'm grateful for the opportunity to share Emma G.'s world. Her world was mine too: a love of writing and music and, of course, the excitement of that first crush. Emma G. was actually based on a real first crush story and I'd love to hear from readers because so many of us have those same feelings. Taro
