25 Reasons Recap: Top 10

25 Reasons Why You Should Read CULTURE SHOCK : Recap Top 10

Okay, so let's recap. In anticipation for the release of CULTURE SHOCK by Jeanette Pekala on March 26, 2013, I've been naming 25 reasons why you should read Culture Shock. So just in case the book description leaves you tittering on the verge of buying it, but you're just not sure...these reasons should push you over that ledge. They are all elements of the first book in the Culture Shock Series.
Here's the top 10 reasons to recap. Only two more weeks until the release.....
10.) Because you've never seen a champagne fountain filled with blood...
9.) You love zombies and Italian food. Not together, of course...unless you're in to that kinda stuff.
8.) You can relate if you've even been muddin' and thought, "I can plow through that big puddle", only to find out it's a small lake.
7.) You want to hear the lyrics to a song by "Ginger", music fueled by redheaded angst.
6.) ~*~*~Black Magic~*~*~
5.) Who doesn't love a mysterious bad boy?
4.) It's funny and fantastical at times while dangerous and suspenseful at others.
3.) The bloodier the better for you and I ain't talking steaks.
2.) You believe bacon cheese fries and strawberry malts will cure all that ails you.
1.) The title Culture Shock has a double meaning and you want to find out why???
CULTURE SHOCK is a witty tale of mystery and romance with a large helping of southern hospitality.
Macy Holmes is a seventeen-year-old socially-isolated introvert since her best friend's death a year ago. When her family decides to move from Manhattan to the quaint country town of Bougainvillea, Florida, Macy finds she's in a completely different world. Macy is no longer the outsider hiding behind designer clothes when she is sought out by three strange students, one of whom she is particularly interested in. The more time she spends with Chad the more things don't add up. When his true identity is finally revealed, Macy is pulled into a supernatural society with its saturation of inhabitants residing in Bougainvillea.
You would think she has enough on her plate, but no, then her dreams become infiltrated by an external magical force, Macy and her band of supernatural misfits must find the culprit behind the magic-induced nightmares. They must dodge zombie assassins, shifty shape-shifters and high school bullies in order to stop this perpetrator before Macy, her friends or her parents pay the ultimate price. Especially when Macy has the sneaking suspicion that these dreams are reality...
