The Girlfriends' Cyber Circuit presents Mindi Scott!

Live_Through_This_cover(1)The Girlfriends' Cyber Circuit is a web ring of YA authors. Check these posts for the latest releases!


From the outside, Coley Sterling’s life seems pretty normal . . . whatever that means. It’s not perfect—her best friend is seriously mad at her and her dance team captains keep giving her a hard time—but Coley’s adorable, sweet crush Reece helps distract her. Plus, she has a great family to fall back on—with a mom and stepdad who would stop at nothing to keep her siblings and her happy.

But Coley has a lot of secrets. She won’t admit—not even to herself—that her almost-perfect life is her own carefully-crafted façade. That for years she’s been burying the shame and guilt over a relationship that crossed the line. Now that Coley has the chance at her first real boyfriend, a decade’s worth of lies are on the verge of unraveling.

In this unforgettable powerhouse of a novel, Mindi Scott offers an absorbing, layered glimpse into the life of an everygirl living a nightmare that no one would suspect.

Jenn: What’s your favorite gizmo advertising your book?

Mindi: I have a book trailer!

Jenn: How does this book fit in with your others? Is it part of a series, unrelated but the same sort of book, or a real departure?

Mindi: Live Through This takes place in the same town as Freefall and there is a tiny bit of character overlap. For the most part, though, this book is a complete standalone.

Jenn: What’s the weirdest thing you were doing or the weirdest place you were when you came up with part of this book?

Mindi: Sneaking into an abandoned house to go exploring with my sister!

Jenn: What good books have you read lately?

Mindi_Scot_-_Author_PhotoMindi: Never Enough by Denise Jaden, The Disenchantments by Nina Lacour,
Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King, Falling for Hamlet by Michelle Ray,
If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman, Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins, Something Like Normal by Trish Doller, and Stupid Fast by Geoff Herbach.

Jenn: What’s next for you?

Mindi: My critique partner, Michelle Andreani, and I are writing a novel together. We also have a blog that we (sometimes) update about our progress here.
