BOOK SYNOPSIS (via Goodreads):
Being Astrid Krieger is absolutely all it’s cracked up to be.
She lives in a rocket ship in the backyard of her parents’ estate.
She was kicked out of the elite Bristol Academy and she’s intent on her own special kind of revenge to whomever betrayed her.
She only loves her grandfather, an incredibly rich politician who makes his money building nuclear warheads.
It’s all good until…
“We think you should go to the public school,” Dad said.
This was just a horrible, mean thing to say. Just hearing the words “public school” out loud made my mouth taste like urine (which, not coincidentally, is exactly how the public school smells).
Will Astrid finally meet her match in the form of public school? Will she find out who betrayed her and got her expelled from Bristol? Is Noah, the sweet and awkward boy she just met, hiding something?
For most writers, getting publicity of any kind is a challenge of Herculean-proportions.
Not so for David Iserson, author of upcoming novel, “Firecracker” which releases May 16 in the USA.
No camping out on Facebook for days on end, or tweeting 24/7, or begging friends and far flung relatives to give his first born book 5 star reviews on Amazon, for him … and the reason why has everything to do with his stellar day job as a film and television writer.
He is currently a writer for Fox’s smash hit sitcom New Girl, but has also created winning bon mots for venerable comedy institution Saturday Night Live, comedy Up All Night and the brilliantly creative The United States of Tara.
And so when it came to tell the world about his first novel, he did what any self respecting person in his position would do.
He asked the amazing actors and performers he works with on a daily basis to star in the trailer for Firecracker and the result is one of the most engaging, fun and absorbing book trailers I have ever seen.
