Welcome to the Pretty in Punxsutawney Takeover Tour + Giveaway

Welcome to the Takeover Tour for Pretty in Punxsutawney by Laurie Boyle Crompton with JustRead Publicity Tours!


Title: Pretty in Punxsutawney
Author: Laurie Boyle Crompton
Publisher: Blink Young Adult
Genre: Contemporary Young Adult
Release Date: January 15, 2019
A Groundhog Day meets Pretty in Pink mashup from author Laurie Boyle Crompton, Pretty in Punxsutawney tells the tale of a girl willing to look beneath the surface to see people for who they really are.

Andie is the type of girl who always comes up with the perfect thing to say…after it’s too late to say it. She’s addicted to romance movies—okay, all movies—but has yet to experience her first kiss. After a move to Punxsutawney, PA, for her senior year, she gets caught in an endless loop of her first day at her new school, reliving those 24 hours again and again.

Convinced the curse will be broken when she meets her true love, Andie embarks on a mission: infiltrating the various cliques to find the one boy who can break the spell. What she discovers along the way is that people who seem completely different can often share the very same hopes, dreams, and hang-ups. And that even a day that has been lived over and over can be filled with unexpected connections and plenty of happy endings.
