Fun: They Call Me....Gamer



Hey Readers/bloggers! 
I thought I'd try to start a small feature here called "They Call Me..." 
Have any of you ever heard of Ron White? Yes..No. Well if you have then that's why the line "They call me" sounds familiar. If not then let me explain, Ron White is a comedian and one of his jokes (and title of an album I think) is called They call me Tater Salad. So basically that's it. :)

What this feature is about is having fun and making up those names from the Name generators. You know what I'm talking about right? Usually, you'll see them pop up on your facebook feed. I'm always seeing them and sometimes I'll answer them by putting it in a comment. I thought it would be fun to have a place where everyone can see each others. After you figure out what your name is put it in the comment section below and let's have fun and talk about the names that it makes.



I might even get brave and actually make a few name generators myself once I feel comfortable with this feature. I have a few in mind already, and it's book related what! AlsoI'm going to try and add some gifs that fit with it because people seem to love gifs!

PAGES: 543
SERIES/STAND ALONE: Book 2

SOURCE: Book Outlet

CHALLENGES: None


OUTLINE:
Pattyn’s father is dead. Now she’s on the run in this riveting companion to New York Times bestseller Burned, which Kirkus Reviews calls “a strong, painful, and tender piece about wresting hope from the depths of despair.”

Pattyn Von Stratten’s father is dead, and Pattyn is on the run. After far too many years of abuse at the hands of her father, and after the tragic loss of her beloved Ethan and their unborn child, Pattyn is desperate for peace. Only her sister Jackie knows what happened that fatal night, but she is stuck at home with their mother, who clings to normalcy by allowing the truth to be covered up by their domineering community leaders. Her father might be finally gone, but without Pattyn, Jackie is desperately isolated.

Alone and in disguise, Pattyn starts a new life as a migrant worker on a California ranch. But is it even possible to rebuild a life when everything you’ve known has burned to ash and lies seem far safer than the truth?
