Plumb Crazy by Molly Blaisdell blog tour

Plumb Crazy
Release Date: 06/10/14

Small town country girl Elva Presley Hicks is about to attend her five-year class reunion with her best friends, Shay and Margarett.

The discovery of an old fanfic manuscript stirs up memories of her summer job as a plumber’s helper in Houston the summer before senior year. She earned a lot of money that year, but was lonely as heck.

It's not like there weren't any suitors back then. Elva could have chosen between Chase, the obese pig farmer, and Wyatt, the plumber with wandering hands. But Elva yearned for something more, and found it that fateful summer, with electrician, Mitch McCall.

It was magical. Mitch wasn't turned off by Elva's name or fan fiction writing, and Elva didn't lose interest in Mitch after he cut off his nose at work.

Trials and triumphs followed including a friendship implosion, world-wide fanfic humiliation, and goat salvation. It would go down as the most memorable summer of high school.

But as these things sometimes do, the summer romance fizzled and Elva moved on to life after high school. And while she's ready to reminisce, she is unnerved when she runs into Mitch at the reunion. Can they give it another go after so much time has passed, or are they too different now to even try?

Add it to your Goodreads

Plumb Crazy is a great young adult read. It starts off in the present day but the main character Elva takes you back to her teenage years.
Elva is a star trek fanatic. She is also a hard worker, mouthy, and gorgeous girl. This girl is not your normal skinny whinny girl. She is what my husband calls healthy. She starts working with her grandfather doing plumbing. Yep plumbing. The girl is stronger than me because I would have never lasted. She works hard for her money. She struggles with relationships between friends and guys. Her friends Margaret and Shay are something else too. You will get a good dose of them as well.
Along with the best friends you will meet Wyatt and Mitch. Wyatt I didn’t like very much. He was a douche. Now Mitch I fell in love with him immediately. He is hot and a great guy all the way around.
This story is a good one. I really enjoyed it. Especially considering I never really cared for Star Trek. It was nice to read about a girl with a healthy appetite that was sexy in the eye of these men in the book. It made me feel better about myself honestly.

I am giving this book 4 hearts.
