Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt (YASH Fall 2016)!
This bi-annual event was first organized by author Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonus material from their favorite authors…and a chance to win some awesome prizes! At this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author, you also get a clue for the hunt. Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize–one lucky winner will receive one book from each author on the hunt in my team! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 72 hours!
Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are eight contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the GOLD TEAM but there is also a red team, an orange team, a blue team, a green team, and a purple team for a chance to win a whole different set of books!
If you’d like to find out more about the hunt, see links to all the authors participating, and view the full list of prizes up for grabs, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page.

SCAVENGER HUNT POST
For this YASH, I have the honor of hosting Cyn Balog!!!
Cyn is the author of the young adult paranormal novels FAIRY TALE, SLEEPLESS, STARSTRUCK, TOUCHED, DEAD RIVER, and UNNATURAL DEEDS, which we’ll be taking about today for YASH.
She lives outside Allentown, Pennsylvania with her husband and daughters.
A novel of infatuation and obsession, UNNATURAL DEEDS has an electrifying ending that readers won’t see coming.
Victoria Zell doesn’t fit in, not that she cares what anyone thinks. She and her homeschooled boyfriend, Andrew, are inseparable. All they need is each other. That is, until Zachary Zimmerman joins her homeroom. Within an hour of meeting, he convinces good-girl Vic to cut class. And she can’t get enough of that rush.
Despite Vic’s loyalty to Andrew, she finds her life slowly entwining with Z’s. Soon she’s lying to everyone she knows in an effort to unravel Z’s secrets. Except Z’s not the only one with a past. Victoria’s hiding her own secrets, secrets that will come back to haunt her…and destroy everything in her path.
Are you ready? Cyn has shared a deleted scene from UNNATURAL DEEDS for the scavenger hunt. Does your excitement meter go to 11? It should!!!
How familiar with Z. were you?
He was in the play with me.
Macbeth, right? It says here that he played the title role and you played Lady Macbeth. So you must have worked closely together. Were you friends?
Friends? I guess. Sort of.
Were you romantically involved?
. . . What?
Did you have a romantic relationship with Z.?
. . .
I have a boyfriend, sir.
And who is this boyfriend of yours?
Andrew. But he has nothing to do with any of this.
Can I have a glass of water?
