Author Mad Libs: Elisa Ludwig
Today is Author Mad Libs Hat Trick Day! Check back throughout the day for two other featured Mad Libs authors. Our first guest is Elisa Ludwig, author of the much anticipated PRETTY CROOKED. This modern day Robin Hood story hit the shelves this week, and I can't wait to pick it up. I sent Elisa a parts of speech list. She sent back words. This is the result.
Willa's secret plan seems all too _rabid_.
Take from the rich _piccolos_ at valley prep and give to the _spiffy_ ones.
Yet Willa's turn as Robin Hood at her _clammy_ high school is anything but. _Crystallizing_ her "friends"—known to everyone as the Glitterati—without them suspecting a _girdle_ is far from easy. Learning how to break into lockers and _zephyrs_ is as hard as she'd thought it would be. Delivering _auspicious_ packages to the scholarship girls, who are bullied just for being _torpid_, is more fun than she'd expected.
The _rutabaga_ Willa didn't expect, though, is Aidan Murphy, VP's most notorious ace-degenerate. His mere existence is _cumbersome_ Willa from what matters most to her—evening the _splendiferous_ playing field between the haves and have-nots. There's no time for _tangoing_, especially with conceited trust-funders like Aidan. But when the cops start _navelgazing_ the string of thefts at Valley Prep and the Glitterati begin to seek _a phlebotomist_, could Aidan wind up being the person that Willa trusts most?
Elisa Ludwig's Pretty Crooked is the first _Zamboni_ in an adventurous teen caper series filled with mystery, _rigmarole_, and heart.
I'm so intrigued by this book! Thank you, Elisa, for being a good sport. :) To learn more about Elisa, visit her site. To purchase your own copy of PRETTY CROOKED, head to Indie Bound, Books a Million, Barnes and Noble, or Amazon.
