YAmazing Race

Hello! Thanks for making it to the Send Me a Sign pit-stop on the YAmazing Race with MGnificent prizes! Since I’m not the first stop on the Exploding Flamingos, you probably know the drill by now — This is a blog hop featuring a zillionty debut authors. We’re giving away prize packs stuffed with ARCs, gift certificates, and all sorts of swag.

If you’ve stumbled on this post and are feeling a little lost — skedaddle over to the Apocalypsie website where you’ll find some helpful directions and links to the beginning.

Send Me a Sign by Tiffany Schmidt 

Mia Moore has spent her entire life looking for signs. A sign that she should get serious with her soccer-captain boyfriend. A sign that she’ll get the grades to make it into an Ivy-league school. A sign that the summer before senior year will be the best one ever.

But when Mia is diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia, the only sign she wants to see is that she will survive cancer. That she will get through a summer of intensive chemo and be able to go back to being the girl she’s always been—top student, part of the A-list crowd, and dating Ryan, the hottest guy at school.

And until she’s better—meaning no throwing up, no hospital stays, and definitely no wig—Mia doesn’t want anyone to know she has cancer. She doesn’t want her friends’ pity. And she certainly doesn’t want to start feeling something more than friendship for the one person who does know what she’s going through, her best friend Gyver. But the sicker Mia gets, the more she realizes that not even the clearest signs offer perfect answers, and in order to find out what happens in her life, she will have to find the courage to live it.

  1. YAmazing and MGnificient are some pretty fabulous words. What’s your favorite word right now? (made up OR real)

    * Smackledorf!lol

  2. Thanks for the giveaway! My favorite word at the moment is hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia just because it’s a long word.

  3. My favorite word is “defenestration.” It means “to throw something or someone out of a window.” I learned waaaay back when, and for some reason it tickled me. (Yeah, I’m weird.)

  4. My husband made up this word when my son was born:

    squeebatudinous

    It means someone who has a lot of energy and can’t sit still.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. I’m a fan of the word ‘diaphanous.’ Not quite sure why, except maybe that I think it sounds cool. Or maybe ‘brilliant!’ This probably sounds weird, but I love that British people have ‘brilliant’ in their every day word use.

  6. I’ve been using the word “Catbean” a lot lately (from the internet video Boots’n’Cats). Because, well, our cat is tiny and often curls into the shape of a bean…so we call her Catbean!

  7. Right now, it’s just a stupid word i’m using to tell how my cuz is. Here is a real live example: “You are as cute as a BABBY-PUPPY.” Yup, that’s the word i used. You won’t be the first one to face-palm at this 😀

  8. I like the word ephemeral. It means “short-lived” and it comes from the Greek meaning “of a day: (i.e someone who only lives for a day). Reminds me of butterflies and other beautiful, short-lived things. I love etymology like that.
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  9. effervescent I like it because it can describe a person, a drink, a bubble bath, and probably many other things I haven’t thought of yet.
    I just like the image it brings to mind.

  10. My favorite word right now is… wanderlust! It describes how I’ve been feeling these past few weeks as the weather gets warmer and I read more and more about road trip books.

  11. I don’t usually have a favourite word but just yesterday the word ‘lackadaisical’ just popped up, and I started repeatedly saying it because I liked the way it sounded, hehe. :3

  12. NO JOKE – my favorite word is foible. I LOVE the way it sounds 😀
    Thanks for the contest!

  13. I have always liked the word cynical, the way it sounds and is spelled. In french my favorite word is biblotheque. It means library but is super fun to say.

  14. My favorite word right now is “butterflying”
    Colleen Hoover uses it in her book “Point of Retreat”, which is awesome, if you haven’t read it!
    Thanks for the chance to win!
    Rafflecopter name is Olivia L.M.

  15. Thanks for the taking part in the YAmazing Race and for this giveaway. My favorite word at the moment is “chance” just to take chances

    Rebecca on RC

  17. Floccinaucinihilipilification. It an actual words. Meaning the act or habit of describing or regarding something as unimportant, of having no value or being worthless.
