#Review of Adrenaline Crush by @lbcrompton with #Giveaway

When a daredevil teen pushes herself too far, she must choose between two boys: the one who wants to keep her safe, and the one who dares her to return to her old self.

Seventeen-year-old Dyna comes from a family of risk takers and is an avid thrill-seeker herself, until the day she splinters her ankle in a terrible fall. Her whole life goes from mountain biking and rock climbing to sitting at home and attending group sessions at the bizarre alternative healing center that her hippie mother found. The boy who witnessed Dyna’s accident believes her injury is a wakeup call and he encourages her mild new lifestyle, but a young Afghanistan War veteran she meets at the healing center pushes her to start taking chances again. Forced to face the consequences of her daredevil impulses, Dyna finds herself in danger of risking the one thing she’s always treated with caution—her heart.

Laurie Boyle Crompton is the author of BLAZE (Sourcebooks/Feb 2013) and THE REAL PROM QUEENS OF WESTFIELD HIGH (Sourcebooks/Feb 2014). ADRENALINE CRUSH will be published by FSG/Macmillan on September 23, 2014. Laurie caught the writing bug back in high school while reading an essay she'd composed aloud to her class. Her classmates laughed in all the right places. It was like the opposite of that nightmare where everyone laughs while you stand there in your underwear. She was giddy with power.

Laurie graduated first in her class from St. John's University with a major in English and minor in Journalism. Since then she's written for national magazines like ALLURE as well as numerous trade publications and has appeared on Good Day New York several times as a Toy Expert. Yes. That is a real thing that people sometimes get paid to be.

She lives near NYC, but maintains a secret identity in New Paltz, NY where she and her family can often be found climbing over rocks or tromping through the forest. You can visit her at

My Review 5 Stars

I  have been a long time fan of Laurie's and I have to say that this small under 200 page book blew me away.  I wonder would it look bad for me to enter my own #ReadOn giveaway when she comes on?  HAHA It was just that good.  I just fell in love with these characters and how each one changed through this book which was so packed with story, plot, and character. That you will find it hard to leave them behind once you are done.

Editorial Reviews


"Crompton populates this short novel with memorable characters, and her sharp, smart writing makes it zing, especially when Dyna describes her adrenalin-junkie activities . . . Put this on the shelf next to Jenny Han and Simone Elkeles." - Booklist
"Raised by her tattoo- and motorcycle-loving parents to take risks, Dyna injures herself in an accident and finds herself emotionally changed . . . Inspiring." - Kirkus Reviews
"Dyna is a young daredevil and outdoor challenge junkie who loves nothing more than reveling in the mountains and forests of her mid-Hudson Valley home . . . Thoughtful teens will enjoy this satisfying read with well-crafted characters and a nice sense of place." - School Library Journal
