Debs Blog Tour: Erin Dionne

Hey Y'all!

Sorry to have been MIA this past week, I decided to jet home for a few days to hang out with my family!  I owe y'all some winners of my giveaway last week and promise to post those tomorrow!!

Today I bring you another installment in the Debs Blog Tour: Models Don't Eat Chocolate Cookies by Erin Dionne!  I can't tell you how excited I am to read this book, it just looks so amazingly cute and I've heard great things!  Here's some info about it!

About the Book:

Thirteen-year-old Celeste Harris is no string bean, but comfy sweatpants and a daily chocolate cookie suit her just fine. Her under-the-radar lifestyle could have continued too, if her aunt hadn’t entered her in the HuskyPeach Modeling Challenge. To get out of it, she’s forced to launch Operation Skinny Celeste—because, after all, a thin girl can’t be a fat model! What Celeste never imagined was that losing weight would help her gain a backbone . . . or that all she needed to shine was a spotlight. 

About the Author:

Erin Dionne has lived on two coasts and in four states. Her debut novel, MODELS DON’T EAT CHOCOLATE COOKIES, was inspired by events that occurred in seventh grade, when she wore a scary peach bridesmaid dress in her cousin’s wedding and threw up on her gym teacher’s shoes (not at the same event).  Although humiliating at the time, these experiences are working for her now.  

Erin lives outside of Boston with her husband and daughter, and a very insistent dog named Grafton. She roots for the Red Sox, teaches English at an art college, and sometimes eats chocolate cookies.

How awesome does this look?
