NEWS: The End (Five Queer Kids Save The World) by Nora Olsen

Nora Olsen, over at, has just published her debut novel, The End: Five Queer Kids Save The World:

When World War Three breaks out, seventeen-year-old Julia is on a school trip to Amsterdam, while fourteen-year-old Marly is trapped in a prison for delinquent girls. They both discover magical amulets, and try their best to save themselves and those around them. But it looks like their best will not be enough, as nuclear war threatens the survival of the human race.

On her journey home to New York, Julia is joined by three other queer teens and the mysterious and alluring Ginger; lipstick lesbian Vikki; and five-thousand-year-old Skilly, who has an amulet that grants him eternal life. When Julia and Marly meet, they are immediately attracted to each other. But romance has to take a back seat as the five friends learn the true powers of the amulets. Can they travel through time to save the world from total destruction?

To celebrate the launch, she is giving away a copy of The End and a matching magnet to one (1) lucky winner. To fill out the entry form, go here.

Sign me up! This sounds like a fun read, and just the kind of book I need to get started on challenges for 2011. Swing on by Nora's site and check it out.
