About “The Bargaining”

When Penny Warren agrees to live in the North Woods with her stepmother, she thinks she’s renovating the old Carver House. She thinks she’ll finally escape the death of her best friend, Rae.
But the North Woods are lonely, and they have no intention of letting Penny escape anything.
Oooooo… Sounds Creepy.

 And here’s an exclusive post from Carly!

Hey, YASHers! Thanks for participating in this season’s YA Scavenger Hunt. I’m so thrilled to join in the fun again this fall. So, for this exclusive bonus offering, I wanted to let you in on a little of the exploration I did while searching for a setting to inspire THE BARGAINING.

whidbey-island-2 I was still relatively new to the Pacific Northwest, and while I was pretty certain I wanted the fictional town of Point Finney to emulate certain characteristics of some of the towns I imagined existed around the north and south Sound, I hadn’t visited enough of the many, many towns that the northwest coast has to offer. Fortunately, my brother and sister-in-law had already been living in the area for some time, so they were able to offer up a few places for me to start.

whidbey-island-3-jpgI was especially intrigued by Whidbey Island – an actual island floating in the north Sound (I’ve come to find there are many islands in the area). This one, though, held a certain intrigue for me. I tried SO HARD, dear YASHers, to find the pictures I took of the downtown and the surrounding farmland, patches of wooded areas, and beaches that fed my imagination. Alas, they’re lost in the Cloud somewhere. But these pics do the area more justice than I could have on my iPhone. The town is breathtaking, and the people were so nice. If you visit, the Need & Feed is a must. They make their own bread, and you can smell it for blocks. For all you writers out there, a well-known writers’ residency called Hedgebrook also calls Whidbey its home.

whidbey-island-1-jpgThe folks in Point Finney – and the secrets they’re keeping – are not at all what I found in Whidbey, and I’m just morbid enough to have been disappointed by that. I was really hoping for a dismal experience so I could work from a solid platform. Instead, Point Finney is more a reflection of what I thought Whidbey could have been given sadder circumstances … and a much deeper forest.

Good luck on the rest of your hunt!

Hugs, Carly

  1. Thank you for hosting this giveaway… I have many YA favourite books. I’d like to mention my last read YA favourite book, Being Jamie Baker by Kelly Oram here. 😀

  2. I can’t pick a favourite book. there are simply too many awesome authors, writing great books for me to decide on just one

  3. My fav. book is throne of glass – celaena is one of the most badass female characters i’ve read and she’s amazing!

  4. My favorite author right now is Collen Houck. Lover books her books!

  5. captivatedreader

    That’s like asking me which of my children I prefer. 😉 No, I’d probably pick “Twilight” or “Tiger’s Curse”.

  6. You can’t ask me to choose my favorite YA book ever!! Like..I have favorites in each genre! I’m just gonna tell you my last 5 star read, which was P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

  7. I don’t know if I can pick a favorite YA book! I love Harry Potter, Morgan Matson’s books, and Courtney Summers’ books, but that’s just a start! 😉 Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  8. So many favourites… Daughter of Smoke and Bone & Code Name Verity

  9. Favorite YA is SUCH a hard decision… that’s honestly so unfair. I’ve reread Hush, Hush an unhealthy amount of times, but recently, Paula Stokes’s GATU just really blew my mind. Thanks so much for doing a bonus giveaway!

  10. Caitlin Kling

    Hi Jennifer! Thanks so much for being part of YASH! I just finished When the Moon was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore and it’s so beautiful I don’t even know how else to describe it. I loved it.

  11. Bethany Fetzer

    My favorite YA book right now is Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella. The main character reminded me a lot of myself as a teenager.

  12. Gosh such a tough question! But Harry Potter is the YA series that changed my life! 😀

  13. Hard question! Um, there are too many? I love Harry Potter, of course, everything Sarah Dessen, The Raven Boys Cycle by Maggie Stievfater, The Agency series by Y.S. Lee, everything Stephanie Perkins, everything David Levithan, The Day After Forever by Erin Skiffington, Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor, The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley, Simon vs the Homo Sapien Agenda by Becky Albertalli, the Half Bad trilogy by Sally Green…I should stop now, right? 😉

  14. DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE by Laini Taylor. Though I have a feeling Stephanie Garber’s CARAVAL will take that spot once it releases.

  15. Hunger Games — thank you for your giveaway

  16. At the moment, it’s a Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas! I loved the character development of the main character, and the romance was amazing!

  17. I love so many but I’ll say the Hunger Games Trilogy because those books got me into reading YA.

  18. none; haven’t read many

  19. ashlee saunders

    im not sure i really have a favorite it might be a tie between about 50 books but ill go with Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas because i just finished it and the world is currently still in my head =P

  20. I don’t have a favorite YA book, I switch all the time depending on my mood. I do love Shutter by Courtney Alameda, Angelfall by Susan Ee and anything by Kelley Armstrong

  21. I think my favorite changes with my mood, but today I’m going to go with The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie.

  22. I don’t pick A favorite, but I do have one among many that I would like to tell you about. It’s called The Snow Globe by Jenna Nelson. She is a debut author. This was a riveting book, and leaves me excited to read book 2 in 2017! I am eagerly awaiting the sequel. It’s a YA fantasy.

  23. I can’t pick just one. That’s like asking me to pick between chocolate, peanut butter or caramel! I love them all!

  24. Melissa Paschal

    There are too many to pick a favorite! Thanks for being part of the hunt!

  25. i love all of rick riordan’s books.

  26. crashleyrogers

    My favorite book would have to be splintered. It was splendid!

  27. Captured by Erica Stevens.

  28. My favorite YA books was The Iron Fey series and The Lunar Chronicles series.

  29. I have so many favorite YA books, but I love anything by Sarah Dessen or Meg Cabot!

  30. This is fun! I’m so far down the rabbit hole that I couldn’t get back if I tried! Here’s hoping to a bundle of amazing YA books! Go team blue!

  31. At the moment my favourate is Gail Carriger’s Manners and Mutiny, I love her world building and characters so much!

  32. THE HUNGER GAMES FTW! I love how Suzanne Collins created Katniss she’s the most badass character I’ve known. (and #teamPeeta!)

  33. Okay this is a horrible question to ask someone who swallows a book a day! I adore Aprilynne Pike, Sarah J. Maas and I love Andrea Cremer. That’s a narrowed down as I can get!

  34. My favorite YA is anything Sarah J. Mass. She is the best!

  35. Thanks for being a part of the Scavenger Hunt!!! I love it! I have to agree with a previous post. Harry Potter got me to really love reading so it will always hold a special place for me! ❤️

  36. Oh boy! There are too many to narrow it down to just one. Wow! But … the first one that comes to my mind is the classic … Harry Potter. Nothing will ever beat that one!

  37. thanks for the chance I really love the blue team authors and their books
