ABOUT WE ARE THE WILDCATS
Tomorrow, the Wildcat varsity field hockey squad will play the first game of their new season. But at tonight’s team sleepover, the girls are all about forging the bonds of trust, loyalty, and friendship necessary to win.
Everything hinges on the midnight initiation ceremony—a beloved tradition and the only facet of being a Wildcat that the girls control. Until now.
Coach—a handsome former college player revered and feared in equal measure—changes the plan and spins his team on a new adventure. One where they take a rival team’s mascot for a joyride, crash a party in their pajamas, break into the high school for the perfect picture.
But as the girls slip out of their comfort zone, so do some long-held secrets. And just how far they’re willing to go for their team takes them all—especially Coach—by surprise.
BOOK HANGOVER CURE
Thank you Simon and Schuster for sending me a copy to review and feature for this post.
When you read a book that you absolutely love and find that you just can’t stop thinking about it, that is what we consider a book hangover. Now the biggest book nerd problem is how to cure that book hangover. I have several suggestions that are pictured in the photo above but I will list them also below.
- Find your favorite song that brings those great bookish feels
- Eat your favorite snack to help because how can’t it 😉 ( mine is orange chocolate)
- Look for books that are similar to the book that you just read so that you can find another great read
- Lastly, light a relaxing candle, to get you into the head space for an enjoyable adventure
Please share what you do to cure your book hangover in the comments, I love new ideas!
