Las Vegas is far from paradise in spite of what the brochures promise. It's a city where con artists make the rules and aspiring females often wear sequins and dance with a pole. Melody Holiday should know. She's a Vegas native with dreams of making it big in showbiz just like her papa did back in the day, but she refuses to ride on his semi-famous coattails. Mel's going to do things her way, and during a night on the town she proves this when she dances into the spotlight of a stranger. He's handsome, light on his feet, and he has connections in the biz. Perfect. 

While Mel trips the light fantastic with the penthouse crowd, she doesn't notice the trouble until she's discovering contracts hidden in strongboxes and falling for gangsters with Rocky Balboa eyes. And don't even ask about the guy living under her window. What did she expect, anyway? This is Vegas, and getting into and out of trouble is survival. The thing is, there are some kinds of trouble you can never get out of.
If you like your fiction shaken not stirred with a slice of fantasy on the rim, NEON GIRL delivers the goods, offering readers a dose of drama, a dash of romance, and a heaping helping of Las Vegas schmaltz.

The blurb sounded quite promising. This looks like a fun, unique YA novel (something that seems to be getting harder and harder to find). Can't wait to see how the story progresses.
                              Also, congrats on the Watty!
