Blog Tour ~ The Trail Rules by Melanie Hooyenga ~ Excerpt + Giveaway

Morning y’all!

Welcome to the Blog Tour for The Trail Rules by Melanie Hooyenga! I just had to participate when I saw this adorable, sweet cover.

For today’s post I got book/author information, a squee excerpt, and a giveaway open to both US and INT.

So let’s get on our bicycles and ride!

Junior year’s looking up for sixteen-year old Mike. Her new BFF isn’t a sadistic control freak, her boyfriend adores her, and she’s learning to bike in the mountains without decapitating herself on a tree.
Well, almost.

When she meets a group of riders who welcome her into their pack, she feels like she’s finally found where she belongs. One particular rider—a boy with an amazing smile and an even more amazing ability to see what she’s truly capable of—gives her the confidence to go after what she wants: her own life with her own rules.
There’s only one problem—he’s not her boyfriend.

Just as things seem to be falling into place, her parents put on the pressure to figure out her future—one that doesn’t include riding. Mike soon realizes that having everything isn’t that great when she’s not the one choosing it. She needs to decide if she’s going to continue to be a follower or step out of the shadows and find her own trail.

About the author:

Multi-award winning young adult author Melanie Hooyenga first started writing as a teenager and finds she still relates best to that age group. She has lived in Washington DC, Chicago, and Mexico, but has finally settled down in her home state of Michigan. When not at her day job as a Communications Director at a nonprofit, you can find Melanie attempting to wrangle her Miniature Schnauzer Owen and playing every sport imaginable with her husband Jeremy.

Excerpt time!

I cover my eyes, but can’t help but watch Mica and Evan through my fingers. Evan’s checking out Mica’s bike, poking something above the wheels that must have something to do with the suspension, but Mica’s not watching him.

He’s looking at me.

I quickly turn to Cally. “Are you having fun? Sorry it’s raining but it makes it interesting, right?”

“He’s still watching you,” she whispers.

“No he’s not.”



“Have you talked to him?”

“Just when we all got here.”


“No hmms. This is bad.”

“Is it?”

I catch her eye as Evan moves to my side and slips an arm around my waist.

“We can talk about this later.”
