Since losing her mom on 9/11, Elena Larsen hasn’t set foot in New York City– until now, and it’s only temporary, to take care of her sister. 

Lucas Adair also lost his mother that terrible day, but for him New York is hallowed ground.  He knows better than to make plans with a woman with one foot on a plane, yet can’t help himself. There’s something about Elena. He doesn’t put much faith in signs but even he starts to believe that he and Elena were meant to be.

 Now, he just has to convince her.






Some Boys Cover  Some Boys August, 2014 (Sourcebooks Fire)

Some boys go too far. They break your heart. But one boy can make you whole. 

When Grace meets Ian she’s afraid. Afraid he’ll reject her like the rest of the school, like her own family. After she accuses the town golden boy of rape, everyone turns against Grace. They call her a slut and a liar. But…Ian doesn’t. He’s funny and kind with secrets of his own.

Jennifer Brown, author of HATE LIST and BITTER END says SOME BOYS is “A bold and necessary look at an important, and very real, topic. Everyone should read this book.”

Kirkus says SOME BOYS is “A largely sensitive treatment of an emotionally complex topic…Readers will find themselves rooting…for both the romance and for Grace’s and Ian’s growth.”

 Booklist says that SOME BOYS’   “powerful delivery, realistic dialogue, and well-placed hooks makes this a book that will be easy to sell to readers, especially reluctant ones.”

In a 4-star review, RT says “…you will be satisfied at the end of this powerful work.”

 What People Are Saying

A great page-turner to savor during the last days of summer…”  Seventeen Magazine.


“With amazing authenticity, Patty Blount captures the thrill of gamer culture, as well as the dangers that lurk in an e-world where seeming truth and identity can be conjured like magic. Playing in this space is Bailey, who feels anything but made-up. She has real history, real problems, and a heart just a bit too open to stop her from falling in.” ~ Geoff Herbach

“Talk about a refreshing read of a female character that is into gaming. Ms. Blount, with her tech background, made sure to portray Bailey, when in her element, with all the passion that a gamer has when playing.”  – Thiemba

“In this engrossing yet painfully realistic book, readers change point of view from Meg to Bailey and see how miscommunication online and in person can lead to badly hurt feelings and result in damage to a relationship built since the girls were young.” ~Amy Alessio
