The Spring 2016 YA Scavenger Hunt Is On!

Welcome! Right now you’re hunting on Team Purple!

My name is Jennifer DiGiovanni and I’m a first-time host. I’m so excited to be part of the hunt! Team Purple Rocks!

Team Purple

If you haven’t read the scavenger hunt rules yet, here they are:

The “hunt” is a puzzle that’s just adding up numbers. Each blog you visit will contain a “secret” number. Add the numbers for each team and submit the total to be entered for the grand prize. There are 9 grand prizes being offered, one for each team. You can find the entry page here.

Today, I’m hosting Caroline Patti, author of INTO THE DARK. Check out this awesome book on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Here’s a little bit about Caroline…

Caroline T. Patti is the author of Into the Dark as well as the Nettie series. She is a mother, a procrastinator, and an avid Green Bay Packer Fan. She most likely regrets eating that box of candy, but she did it anyway. Caroline lives in Northern California with her husband, her two daughters, and her Yorkie, Captain Jack Sparrow.

Find out more about this fabulous author by following her here:




And here’s a description of INTO THE DARK:

On the night of her 16th birthday, Mercy Clare comes to in the waiting room of a hospital with no memory of how she got there. She doesn’t know why she’s wearing her best friend’s clothes either. Mercy stumbles off to the bathroom, flips on the light and realizes she’s living a nightmare. She’s in the body of her best friend, Lyla. It’s then that Mercy finds out she’s no ordinary girl. She’s not even human. She’s a Breacher, a being capable of stealing other people’s bodies and living forever.

For the hunt, Caroline has shared her awesome playlist for Into the Dark. Here are the songs that inspired her:

The King of Carrot Flowers Part 1 by Neutral Milk Hotel


Into the Dark by Death Cab for Cutie


Carry On by Fun


Come Pick Me Up by Ryan Adams


The Giving Tree by Plain White Tees


Holding On and Letting Go by Ross Copperman


Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day


Hold Back the River by James Bay


Standing in the way of the Light by Birdy


The Lonely by Christina Perri

Thanks to Caroline for visiting my blog today! And thanks to everyone on the scavenger hunt for stopping by as well! I’m so excited to be a part of TEAM PURPLE, because purple is my favorite color.
