YA Scavenger Hunt Spring 2018

Hello my friends!

And welcome to the Spring 2018 edition of the Young Adult Scavenger Hunt! You’re hunting for TEAM BLUE, which happens to be my favorite color ever. I’m Jacob Devlin, your humble host for this round of the search, and I’m here to guide you to the coveted book prize (and a couple fun ones I threw in myself)! Here are two fun facts about me:

  1. When I was a tiny little kid I tried to eat a Christmas ornament because I thought it might taste like fruit. (I mean, it was on a tree…)
  2. I enjoy singing along to Italian pop rock in my car.

Deep within this hunt–in a land/blog post far far away–I have hidden an exclusive deleted scene from my most recent book, THE HUMMINGBIRD! Find it to uncover a story of what could have been and a twist on an old story you may know. I’ve also hidden a secret number on this very post. Your main task is to collect ALL the secret numbers on Team Blue, then plug ’em in on this page for a chance to win big. But of course, have fun along the way, and enjoy your chance to connect with all these great writers!

This season, I’m psyched for you all to meet Tobie Easton!


Award-winning author Tobie Easton was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, where she’s grown from a little girl who dreamed about magic to a twenty-something who writes about it. Her debut novel, Emerge, is a Gold Medal Winner (Young Adult – Sci-Fi/Fantasy) of the Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards and is Book 1 in the acclaimed Mer Chronicles series. The trilogy follows the descendants of the Little Mermaid and offers fans a peek into a world where Mermaids aren’t just real, but live secretly among us on land.

She and her very kissable husband enjoy traveling the globe and fostering packs of rescue puppies. Tobie loves chocolate chip cookies and Oxford commas. A summa cum laude graduate of the University of Southern California, Tobie splits her time between Los Angeles and Boston.

Here’s what Tobie has to share with you all!


Hi, all!  I’m Tobie, author of the Mer Chronicles series, which follows the descendants of the Little Mermaid and offers a peek into a world where mermaids aren’t just real but live secretly among us on land.  The first two books in the trilogy—Emerge and Submerge—are out now, and the third book, Immerse, comes out this year!  I’ve received a bunch of messages from you guys requesting more about the Mermaid everyone loves to hate: Melusine.  So for YASH, I’ve created a Melusine mood board to share with you, and I can’t wait for you to check it out!


You can also explore the Clay, Caspian, and Ondine mood boards I created for YASH last year 😉  Is this how you picture the characters from the Mer Chronicles?  I’d love to hear what you think, so give me a shout!

xo Tobie

Get a look at these covers:



Tobie sounds like a great author to follow if you’re up for a dive into a world of fantasy and mermaids. If you’d like to keep up with her, give her a follow on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Goodreads. I’m no math whiz, but completing each of those tasks just might increase your odds of winning THIS RAFFLECOPTER by a little over 21%. Just a rough estimate, though.

To continue on your hunt, please go visit the great ELIZA TILTON!

Happy reading and happy hunting!
