The Month of Gadfly Project!

Today I want to help spred the word about a little mission Jennifer Miller, author of The Year of the Gadfly! Jennifer needs your book clubs help to set the official record for most book club visits in a single month! She's trying to hit 100 book clubs in 30 days! If you have a book club (5 or more friends) than you can help. And by helping you could recieve lots of free stuff! Check out the book:

Do you know what it took for Socrates’ enemies to make him stop pursuing the truth?”


Storied, fiercely competitive Mariana Academy was founded with a serious honor code; its reputation has been unsullied for decades. Now a long-dormant secret society, Prisom's Party, threatens its placid halls with vigilante justice, exposing students and teachers alike for even the most minor infraction.

Iris Dupont, a budding journalist whose only confidant is the chain-smoking specter of Edward R. Murrow, feels sure she can break into the ranks of The Devil’s Advocate, the Party’s underground newspaper, and there uncover the source of its blackmail schemes and vilifying rumors. Some involve the school’s new science teacher, who also seems to be investigating the Party. Others point to an albino student who left school abruptly ten years before, never to return. And everything connects to a rare book called Marvelous Species. But the truth comes with its own dangers, and Iris is torn between her allegiances, her reporter's instinct, and her own troubled past.

The Year of the Gadfly is an exhilarating journey of double-crosses, deeply buried secrets, and the lifelong reverberations of losing someone you love. Following in the tradition of classic school novels such as A Separate Peace, Prep, and The Secret History, it reminds us how these years haunt our lives forever.

Free stuff:
• One FREE copy of The Year of the Gadfly
• Signed book plates
• An official mention on
• Entry into the "Prep School Pack" giveaway. (Jennifer's favorite prep school novels, movies, and after school snacks.)

  1. I have not heard of this book. Like the cover. Like it is in the style of Dead Poets Society ...with Prep thrown in ? INteresing:)


  2. Thanks for posting about my book club project! I've got nearly 50 clubs signed up so far, but I still have a long way to go. Glamour Magazine calls the book "Part Dead Poet's Society, part Heathers. Entirely addictive." So Michelle, you're right on!


We love to read them. :)
