Neener Neener I have an ARC of LIPSTICK APOLOGY

So, guess what I am currently reading?

From the back cover: 
FOUR LITTLE WORDS WRITTEN IN LIPSTICK mean Emily must say goodbye to everything she knows.  Emily Carson has always been a good girl.  So when she throws a party the night her parents leave for vacation, she's sure she'll get busted.  What Emily doesn't know is that her parents will never return.  That their plane will go down.  And the only thing left amidst the wreckage will be a tray table with the words: Emily please forgive me scrawled in lipstick - her mother's last words.  Now it's fall in New York City and Emily's trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life.  Her public tragedy captures the attention of more than just the media - and soon two very different boys at her new school are pursuing her: the cute, popular Owen, and her quirky chemistry partner slash pastry-baker-by-night, Anthony.  But even with such delicious distractions, Emily can't let go of her mother's mysterious apology.  Does she have the courage to face the truth?  With the help of a whole new kind of family - one that includes a make-up artist to the stars, a teen model, and a wacky hairdresser - Emily must choose between the boy who makes her forget it all, and the one who encourages her to remember, and ultimately, heal.  Sometimes goodbye is just the beginning.

It's super good so far! I am DYING to know what Emily's mom wanted forgiveness for.  And since I missed my Make-A-New-Friend-Monday post yesterday, go friend the author of this fabu book, jenniferjabaley . She's new to Livejournal and just getting started, but I have a feeling her blog will be a fun one to read as she gets closer to her August release date!

PS-- The winner of the lipgloss contest has been notified. The real price of the Prada heels? $1400!! Yep, they were expensive! The closest guess was $1250.
