Imagine a Jewish girl at a Christian summer camp and you have "OyMG" hthe debut YA novel of my guest today Amy Fellner Dominy. And of course alll the makings of a great hours chat with another of the class of 2K11 debut authors.
Ellie Taylor loves nothing better than a good argument. After all, she’s been arguing with her Zeydeh (that’s grandfather in Yiddish) since she could talk. So when she gets accepted to the Christian Society Speech and Performing Arts summer camp, she’s sure she can win the final tournament and a scholarship to the best speech school in the country. Unfortunately, the competition at CSSPA is hot—literally. His name is Devon and whether she likes it or not, being near him makes her sizzle. Luckily she’s up for the challenge—until she begins to suspect that the private scholarship’s benefactor has negative feelings toward Jews. Will hiding her true identity be worth a shot at her dream? Debut author Amy Fellner Dominy cooks up sizzling romance, surprising secrets, and even some matzo ball soup in a funny yet heartfelt story about an outspoken girl who must learn to speak out for herself.
