Save Shrinking Violet

As an English teacher it pains me that a book with so much promise could just fade away!  You need to help save the book Shrinking Violet by Danielle Joseph.  The book is about to go on back order and in order for more copies to be printed, more people have to place orders for the book.

Here's the summary of it from Barnes and Noble

High school senior Teresa Adams is so painfully shy that she dreads speaking to anyone in the hallways or getting called on in class. But in the privacy of her bedroom with her iPod in hand, she rocks out -- doing mock broadcasts for Miami's hottest FM radio station, which happens to be owned by her stepfather. When a slot opens up at The SLAM, Tere surprises herself by blossoming behind the mike into confident, sexy Sweet T -- and to everyone's shock, she's a hit! Even Gavin, the only guy in school who she dares to talk to, raves about the mysterious DJ's awesome taste in music. But when The SLAM announces a songwriting contest -- and a prom date with Sweet T is the grand prize -- Sweet T's dream could turn into Tere's worst nightmare....

Doesn't it sound awesome?????? Soft spot in my heart for the topic because in high school I competed in speech under the radio broadcasting category.
