BOOK BLAST: THE GIRL IN THE ’67 BEETLE by Linda Lenhoff Plus Giveaway!

About The Book

Publication Date: September 26, 2021

The art director of Kids Press, Amy Shepherd has been assigned to reinvent the story of Goldilocks, and she finds her own life reflecting a similar tale. Will she fall for a man who’s a little too old (but exciting), a man who’s a little too young (but awfully exciting looking), or a man who’s just right, at least as far as her friends are concerned? Or will she bring Goldilocks’ story—and her own—up to date with a little help from high-technology and the Goldilocks Planet theory? Amy will have to decide how her own tale will end, all the while driving her beloved powder blue convertible through the streets of Santa Monica, where she has become known as the Girl in the ’67 Beetle, the only thing in her life that, so far at least, feels just right.

  1. Hi All,
    Thanks so much for posting about my latest novel, The Girl in the ’68 Beetle! I just have a thing for old cars I guess. I wish I still had my family’s classics, which included my dad’s 1958 T-Bird and my ’68 Camaro. Anyone else grow up with a super cool car? BTW, this book is meant to be pure fun. Enjoy!

    • You’re most welcome, Linda!

      My mother had a ’66 or ’67 red Mustang. She also had a beautiful blue 70s Mustang, which I got to drive to school until she traded it in for a 70s Camaro. Then I had to drive the 70s Pinto station wagon with that stupid wood paneling on the side. I went from cool to nerd real fast.

    • My dad owned a ’60-something Rambler. It was so NOT cool to be seen riding in one in the ’60s, though, lol. I don’t think it would be cool even today. It was almost as bad as the Dart Swinger. GMC Pacer anyone? How about the AMC Gremlin, Levi’s edition.

      Rolling back the years…
