Giveaway: Everything You Know by Mary Beth Bass
Everything You Know
Release Date: 09/27/13
Summary from Goodreads:
A dark forest, a screaming woman and blood. These are the images that haunt seventeen year old Emma from the moment she meets Joe Castlellaw. And so much more awaits.
Emma Mathews never believed she was like everyone else, but neither did she think herself crazy. Meeting Joe Castlellaw, Henry Dearborn High’s newest student, was like waking on a cold rock in a strange place, the world bathed in liquid moonlight. Everything is different now…and fraught. Visions of a dark forest, a screaming woman and blood have begun to haunt Emma’s dreams, and not only at night. But Joe’s lonely beauty makes her float on air, and she would follow him anywhere—out of high school and through the great tree, to a world of poetry and political savagery, of magic and murder, to a life that is entirely theirs and yet unlike anything they have ever known.
For a second Emma thought about how nice it felt like to have Joe’s hand in hers. If nothing else happened between them, she had that. An interesting, cute, mysterious boy had confronted her unfairly; she’d defended herself, and not only did he not run away or laugh at her, he’d listened and apologized. And held her hand. Maybe Joe liked her the way she liked him. She wished she knew. She wished she could slip into his head without him knowing and find out.
She wasn’t in love with him. She couldn’t be. She didn’t know him; not really. But she did like him. Bad attitude, cranky personality and all. And she thought he might like her in return. Emma inhaled the chilly air, lightly perfumed with the flowery scent of her shampoo, and let her head sink into her pillow.

An occasional travel writer, Mary Beth has written about Paris, Bordeaux, and Yorkshire, where she hiked the moors to the legendary setting for WUTHERING HEIGHTS and stood breathless in the parsonage room where Charlotte, Anne, and Emily Bronte talked out their stories with each other.
