VBT Sykosa by Justin Ordonez



Thank you for your interest, but this tour is now full.

Goddess Fish Promotions is organizing a Virtual Book Tour for Justin Ordonez's debut novel Sykosa. It has been described as a YA novel for the 18+ audience and a book where "the stream-of-conscious literary style of Ulysses meets the thematic elements of Lolita, and they both meet the cast of Degrassi High." (Emlyn Chand)

Justin is available for either interviews or guest blogs and a PDF of the book is available upon request. (If U.S. reviewers only prefer a print copy, please include your mailing address with your emailed request. PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR ADDRESS IN THE COMMENTS.)

Justin will be giving away a $50 Amazon GC to one randomly drawn commenter on his tour.

Sykosa (that's "sy"-as-in-"my" ko-sa) is a sixteen-year-old girl trying to reclaim her identity after an act of violence shatters her life and the life of her friends. This process is complicated by her best friend, Niko, a hyper-ambitious, type-A personality who has started to war with other girls for social supremacy of their school, a prestigious preparatory academy in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. To compensate, Sykosa has decided to fall in love with her new boyfriend, Tom, who was involved in the act of violence. Propelled by survivor guilt, an anxiety disorder, and her hunger for Tom and his charms, Sykosa attends a weekend-long, unchaperoned party at Niko's posh vacation cottage, where she will finally confront Niko on their friendship, her indecision about her friends and their involvement in the act of violence, and she will make the biggest decision of her life—whether or not she wants to lose her virginity to Tom. YA fiction for the 18+ crowd.
