Signed Book Sunday: Sacred by Elana K. Arnold


JBN Signed Book Sunday

Signed Book Sunday is Meme run by JeanBookNerd.

What is SIGNED BOOK SUNDAY?

We are all in this community because of our common interest in reading. The books and stories have become somewhat a piece of us. Whether it be the meaning behind the stories or it has become associated to a period of a time in our lives, books have become more than just entertainment for our imagination.

Books are our gems and they become more of a treasure when they are signed by the author. Now that book has become more personal. It provides valued stories as to when the author signed it and the conversation that was engaged during the signing. These moments are unique and were only experienced by you. Having our favorite books signed is a testament to our love for reading.

Signed Book Sunday will be an outlet for us to showcase books that we have collected over the years with that once special scribble claiming that it was touched by the author. Everyone is welcome to join in on the fun. 

Show your signed books to others and see what others have collected through the years.

To participate, use the Signed Book Sunday Button (Above) and link back to JEANBOOKNERD with photos of your treasured Signed Books, Comics or Graphic Novels. You may provide details of your one of a kind experience or perhaps a moment that made a lasting impression. Share your Signed Book Books now and learn story behind other's signed books.



Growing up on Catalina Island, off the California coast, Scarlett Wenderoth has led a fairly isolated life. After her brother dies, her isolation deepens as she withdraws into herself, shutting out her friends and boyfriend. Her parents, shattered by their own sorrow, fail to notice Scarlett’s pain and sudden alarming thinness. Scarlett finds pleasure only on her horse, escaping to the heart of the island on long, solitary rides. One day, as she races around a bend, Scarlett is startled by a boy who raises his hand in warning and says one word: “Stop.”

The boy—intense, beautiful—is Will Cohen, a newcomer to the island. For reasons he can’t or won’t explain, he’s drawn to Scarlett and feels compelled to keep her safe. To keep her from wasting away. His meddling irritates Scarlett, though she can’t deny her attraction to him. As their relationship blossoms into love, Scarlett’s body slowly awakens at Will’s touch. But just when her grief begins to ebb, she makes a startling discovery about Will, a discovery he’s been grappling with himself. A discovery that threatens to force them apart. And if it does, Scarlett fears she will unravel all over again.



Praise for SACRED

“The attraction between Will and Scarlett is filled with tension and angst, their exploration of literature, God, and the purpose of life is interesting, and the plot moves along at compulsively readable pace.” School Library Journal

“Arnold has written a poignant novel of loss and grief, but also of hope.” 
VOYA

“The ineffable bond that draws Scarlett and Will together will appeal to many teens.” 
Booklist
