Blog Tour: Amplified by Tara Kelly

If you were to have a teenage garage sale, what would be in it? As part of the Amplified Blog Tour, author Tara Kelly is here to tell us what would be in her's!

This is hard since I didn't have a lot growing up. Most of what was precious to me I'd made or wrote in (like a notebook)

A skateboard
Fishnet tights
Fishnet shirts made from fishnet tights
Vinyl pants
Chainmail chokers
Knee-high Docs
Vintage Levi's with my art drawn all over them
Several dozen band T-shirts
Manic Panic hair dye in every color the rainbow
About 1000 books, heavy on the horror A plastic red lunchbox decorated with white-out, band stickers, and marker drawings
Loads of CDs, mostly of every goth and industrial band ever in existence.
Oh, and some local punk thrown in for good measure.

Tara Kelly adores variety in her life. She's a YA author, one-girl-band, web designer, video editor, digital photographer, and literary agent intern. She lives in Portland with her ten guitars, supercool bf, and a fluffy cat named Maestro. Wanna learn more about Tara and her books? Make sure to swing by her website. And don't forget to pick up your copy of Amplified!

When privileged 17-year-old Jasmine gets kicked out of her house, she takes what is left of her savings and flees to Santa Cruz to pursue her dream of becoming a musician. Jasmine finds the ideal room in an oceanfront house, but she needs to convince the three guys living there that she's the perfect roommate and lead guitarist for their band, C-Side. Too bad she has major stage fright and the cute bassist doesn't think a spoiled girl from over the hill can hack it...
