Blog Tour for Dive Smack by Demetra Brodsky (dreamcast and giveaway)




Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Dive Smack by Demetra Brodsky.  This tour is being hosted by Fantastic Flying Book Club.



Dive Smack

by Demetra Brodsky

Publisher: TorTeen

Release Date: June 19, 2018

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary







Theo Mackey only remembers one thing for certain about the fire that destroyed his home: he lit the match.


Sure, it was an accident. But the blaze killed his mom and set his dad on a path to self-destruction. Everything else about that fateful night is full of gaping holes in Theo’s mind, for good reason. Maybe it’s better that way. As captain of the Ellis Hollow Diving Team, with straight A’s and solid friends, he’s only one semester away from securing a scholarship, and leaving his past behind.


But when a family history project gets assigned at school, new memories come rushing to the surface, memories that make him question what he really knows about his family, the night of the fire, and if he can trust anyone—including himself.
