Dystopia author Elana Johnson has a new book releasing September 15!
About SOMETHING ABOUT LOVE: High school senior Olivia Winging gave up
her love of photography when she gave up her boyfriend, Trevor Youngblood, a
year and a half ago. She broke things off with Trevor because her mom married
his dad, and dating your step-brother? Creepy.
Livvy hasn’t been on good terms with her mother since, and one of her
stipulations for staying at the Youngblood’s every other weekend is that Trevor
can’t be there. When she gets nominated for the Junior Photography in
Excellence award, Trevor insists she enter. She agrees—only if every photo in
the portfolio can be of him. Knowing that Livvy can capture a person’s deepest
secrets through her lens, Trevor hesitates before accepting the deal.
As Livvy gets behind the lens of her camera again, her love of photography is
rekindled. Unfortunately, the time she spends with Trevor also re-ignites the
old flame for him she’s kept smothered for so long.
In order for Livvy to finish her portfolio, she’ll have to face her feelings
for Trevor as well as deal with the animosity between her and her mother.
Livvy’s always been able to capture a person’s soul from behind the camera—but
she’s not sure she likes it when the lens is suddenly focused on her. If she
can’t find a way to forgive her mother and admit how she feels about Trevor,
Livvy may end up losing more than just the photography contest. She could lose

Praise for Elana’s first verse novel, Elevated:
“The taut poetry keeps tension high. The plot is deftly
paced, as past intrudes on present, like a photograph emerging in developing
fluid.” ~San Francisco Book Review
“Every word Johnson writes carries an emotional heft that lifts readers up to
the highest happiness and then sends them crashing down to the depths of
despair. It is easy to flow from the first word to the last without ever
putting down the book. Johnson shows outstanding talent in this form, and her
words are beautiful, important and deeply felt.” ~The Deseret News
