2014 Debut Authors Bash- Special Guest Bethany Crandell

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Spoiled, Versace-clad Cricket Montgomery has seventeen years of pampering under her belt. So when her father decides to ship her off to a summer camp for disabled teens to help her learn some accountability, Cricket resigns herself to three weeks of handicapped hell. 

Her sentence takes a bearable turn as she discovers the humor and likeability of the campers and grows close to fellow counselors. Now, if she can just convince a certain Zac Efron look-alike with amazing blue eyes that she finally realizes there’s life after Gucci, this summer could turn out to be the best she’s ever had.

Summer on the Short Bus is a very non-P.C., contemporary YA with a lot of attitude, tons of laughs, and a little life lesson along the way.

 Today Bethany is dishing on her top ten favorite movies. This list encompasses a wide variety of movies.

Top Ten Favorite Movies (no particular genre)



Sixteen Candles
The Breakfast Club
Some Kind of Wonderful
Pretty in Pink
The Goonies
Sound of Music
Pride & Prejudice (Kyra’s version)
The Shawshank Redemption
Raiders of the Lost Ark

School of Rock

So, what is the verdict? Do you and Bethany share any favorite movies? Feel free to tell us both in the comments below!

Author Bio:

Bethany and her husband Terry live in San Diego with their two daughters and a chocolate Labrador who has no consideration for personal space. She writes Young Adult novels because the feelings that come with life’s ‘first’ times are too good not to relive again and again. Bethany eats too much guacamole, thrives on tear-inducing laughter, and is still waiting for Jake Ryan to show up at her door.
This tour was hosted by YA Reads.

  1. I've heard that The Breakfast Club is amazing. I really need to just sit down and open up Netflix to watch it. GAAAH I still need to finish reading Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare.
