Welcome, readers! Shelley Coriell here. I write young adult books and bake desserts. My latest novel, Goodbye, Rebel Blue, is a story about bucket lists and boys…death and destiny. Oh, yes, there are pies. Thanks for stopping by!
Goodbye, Rebel Blue releases Oct. 1, 2013 from Amulet Books/Abrams! Here’s the blurb: Rebecca Blue is a rebel with an attitude whose life is changed by a chance encounter with a soon-to-be dead girl. Rebel (as she’s known) decides to complete the dead girl’s bucket list to prove that choice, not chance, controls her fate. In doing so, she unexpectedly opens her mind and heart to a world she once dismissed–a world of friendships, family, and faith. With a shaken sense of self, she must reevaluate her loner philosophy–particularly when she falls for Nate, the golden boy do-gooder who never looks out for himself.
“Coriell’s off beat premise and unconventional heroine make for a fresh, lively story sharply punctuated by wit and romance.” – Publishers Weekly on Goodbye, Rebel Blue
“As true as the blue streak in her hair, Rebel will encourage readers to follow their own hearts and dreams.” — Kirkus
