What happens when you ask for help?

Remember last month when I told you to stop dragging your feet and ask for help? Today's post is a direct result of an author doing just that. I got a short, but sweet email from Beth Fred last week asking me to be part of her street team. It was concise, full of all the info I needed, and had a direct "What About Me" component.

While the timing didn't work for me to be on the street team, I was so impressed by Beth's request, I knew I wanted to help where I could. Below, you'll find the blurb for Beth's new book, A MISSING PEACE, along with a sign up form to join her street team.

Also, just a reminder that today is the last day to get your questions in for my Google Chat "Ask an Agent" session. You don't have to be a member of the community to post a question, but preference will be given to members if we start to run low on time.

Now, who wants to hear more about Beth's great new YA novel? Oh, good. Me, too!

A Missing Peace
Angry seventeen-year-old Iraqi war refugee Mirriam Yohanna hates her new life in Killeen,Texas, where the main attraction is a military base, and army brats like Caleb Miller think it's okay to comment on a girl's looks before he's even met her. 
After Mirriam turns him down in front of everyone, Caleb rises to the challenge of taking her to prom when his friends dare him. As the two start spending time together to work on a government assignment, Mirriam proves to be a good friend to have. When Caleb's leg is crushed in a hit and run, Mirriam is there to pull him out of the street and push him to keep living. She's also able to tell him the shocking truth about his father's death, which she has firsthand information about. Something the other soldiers would never do. That single truth changes both of their lives and strengthens their bond.
Caleb and Mirriam have fallen hard for each other, but when Caleb finds out the truth about his father's death, he is determined to uncover who is at fault. And the truth will have consequences for Mirriam's safety. When her family finds out the two are together, they decide it's time to arrange Mirriam's marriage to a proper Iraqi man. Will Caleb find justice for his family? Will Mirriam find a way to be true to herself?
