Oh, hi! I’m Gina Rosati, author of AURACLE, and I’m so excited you’ve stopped by on your way through The YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes! which (as you probably know) is a fantastic internet contest hosted by The Apocalypsies, featuring over 50 debut authors and prize packs consisting of ARCs, gift certificates, swag and other cool stuff you didn’t even know you wanted until now! If you’re just starting out, click here to go to the Apocalypsies website so you can read the complete rules and start from the beginning. Been there? Done that? Then scroll on down!

Oh look! It’s my book!

August 7, 2012 ~ Roaring Brook Press/Macmillan

On the surface, there’s nothing special about Anna Rogan; she gets average grades, she’s not especially beautiful, and she spends most of her time just hanging out with her best friend, Rei. But Anna has a secret; she can astrally project out of her body, allowing her spirit to explore the world and the far reaches of the universe.
When there’s an accident and her classmate Taylor takes over Anna’s body, what was an exhilarating distraction from her repressive life threatens to become a permanent state. Faced with a future of never aging, never being heard or touched, Anna turns to Rei for help. Together they search for a way to get Anna back into her body in time to stop Taylor from accusing an innocent friend of her murder, but they don’t take into account the deeper feelings that are beginning to grow between them.
A story about an out-of-body experience gone terribly wrong, AURACLE reaches deep within the soul of one girl to discover the strength of love and the power of a single touch.

When you get to the end of this leg of the race, there will be a quiz and you’ll be asked who Anna’s best friend is. REI!! Anna’s best friend’s name is REI!!  And it’s pronounced like a ray of sunshine, not like the loaf of bread.

Sadly, I don’t have ARCs to give away, but I did make some beaded bookmarks that are very blingy.

See? Pretty! Shiny! Sparkly!
