Susane Colasanti Guest Blog and Giveaway

Today, I'm honored to be a part of the blog tour for Susane Colasanti's latest novel So Much Closer. Before you read Susane's guest post, here's the description of the book:

When Brooke's crush, Scott, moves from their suburban town to New York City, she decides to follow him there. Living with her formerly estranged dad and adapting to a new school are challenging, and things go from bad to worse when Brooke learns that Scott already has a girlfriend. But as she builds her new life, Brooke begins to discover a side of herself she never knew existed. And as she finds out, in the city that never sleeps, love can appear around any corner...

And without further ado, here's Susane talking a little bit about the book:

"Greetings, friendly neighbors! I’m stoked to share some of the inspiration for my fifth book, So Much Closer.

Realistic fiction is my thing. I like incorporating details inspired by my own experiences to make my books feel as realistic as possible. So Much Closer takes place in my neighborhood, the West Village. I had lots of fun including my fave New York City places and things in this book. For my blog tour, we thought it would be fun to share some of them with you. So here we go!

5. Water towers

Water towers rule.

That is all."

I concur with her assessment.
