I’m thrilled to be part of the cover reveal and giveaway for Rita Arens’ new YA novel, The Obvious Game. I first heard Rita speak on a panel at Blissdom several years ago and she left a huge impression on me. I became an instant fan and avid reader of her blog, Surrender Dorothy. Rita just so happens to live near me, so I can’t wait to see her book popping up in stores nearby!
