Lisa T. Bergren

Dear Librarian:

My teen was a reluctant reader—which is pretty embarrassing when you're an author. But reading Twilight and Hunger Games helped me turn her from reluctant to ravenous. And I'm happy to report she ripped through Waterfall and CASCADE, my first novels for teens, saying they were just as good. (But then I'm her mama! You'll have to see what you think.)

Full of action and romance, readers at your library will find out that Gabi and Lia, American teens, time-travel back to medieval Tuscany—and encounter the coolest guys ever—as well as a mountain of danger. These sisters are no wimpy "save me" heroines waiting on their knights; they're seriously tough chicks. Yet they're real girls too, even if they suddenly have lives we might all fantasize about.

Intrigued? You can read excerpts here: Waterfall (click here) and Cascade (click here).

And in celebration of CASCADE's release, you can win a free book for your library. Just email me: Lisa (at) BergrenCreativeGroup (dot) com. Prizes randomly drawn 6/15/11.

Happy reading!
Lisa Bergren

"I thought CASCADE was completely captivating. It's so refreshing to read teen lit that isn't full of darkness but is still exciting. The characters aren't just more Bella and Edward wannabes—they have a fresh romance all their own, and that love story feels utterly real." –Lindsay Olson, teen specialist, Pikes Peak Library District
