FREE One Day Only: Sykosa, Part I: Junior Year by Justin Ordoñez

FREE One Day Only: Sykosa, Part I: Junior Year by Justin Ordoñez

"Sykosa makes for some compelling reading. Older teens and adults alike will enjoy Ordoñez 's tale for its humor, realism and relatable protagonist." -- Kirkus Indie Review





Sykosa (that’s “sy”-as-in-“my” ko-sa) is a junior in high school. She belongs to an exclusive clique of girls called the “Queens.” The leader is her best friend Niko. Their friendship has been strained lately because Tom—Sykosa's first boyfriend—has gotten all serious about making her his pretty Prom princess. That is if he ever gets around to asking her. Before Prom, there’s a party at Niko’s cottage where parental supervision will be nil. He wants to have sex. She doesn’t. He sometimes acts like that doesn’t matter.


It matters.


Sykosa has a secret she has never told anyone about. Although, some people—Tom included—know anyway. It happened last year and it was big and she’ll cry if she talks about it so she’s done talking about it, okay? Never mind, it’s nobody's business. Except it keeps happening, and it never stops. She doesn’t want to deal with it. He does. She sometimes acts like that doesn’t matter.


It matters.


The Reviews Are In

Syskosa by Justin Ordoñez is like a fresh breeze in the YA literature world. It is raw, blunt and real. When many of the YA books written are from fantasy or paranormal genres, Sykosa by Justin Ordonez writes about the reality young people face when becoming of age. It is well written, very direct and keeps nothing hidden. — IngaKS

Ordoñez expertly captures the inner worlds of both genders with ease. — Jill Allen, Clarion ForeWord Review

Gritty, intense and definitely not a book I'll forget! — Ajoop. S

Ordoñez made a serious attempt at something near impossible and hardly described in western culture: the inner angst of a teenage girl. — CuriosityWins

This book really snuck up on me. Because during the time that I was reading it, I would find myself thinking about it when I was driving or doing other things. I would be mulling it over, trying to put the pieces together. — Libby Rodriguez, Libby's Book Blog
