My Buddhist Christmas Book Blitz + Giveaway!




My Buddhist Christmas
by Jeremy Phillips
Release Date: 9/8/15

Summary from Goodreads:

It’s not surprising that sixteen year old Chris Jones has no idea where he fits in…

After all, he’s a Buddhist kid in America—during the Christmas season. Add in the fact he plays guitar in a punk rock band called The Dharma Bhumz, and his life is one giant paradox. Caught between the principles of his religion and the influence of his hard-partying bandmates, Chris is in a constant struggle for balance.

An upcoming talent show is his chance to shine—or fail spectacularly…

It’s already hard enough preparing for the show, since his friends are more interested in getting high than practicing. And now Chris has to worry about impressing pretty Mary Simpson. To make matters even worse, Mary’s parents are fundamentalist Christians, a few steps above his family on the social ladder, and they firmly believe Chris isn’t good enough for their precious daughter.

Conflicted about his friends, lying to his family, and still mourning a devastating loss, Chris wonders if being an American Buddhist guitar wizard wanna-be is worth it.

Or does any of it even matter anymore?

Estratto:
"I feel trapped. I know that I ought to just leave. I ought
to just ditch the whole ridiculous
Dharma Bhumz
thing, despite what the other kids at school will say, des
pite all the fliers that are
up around the building with my picture on it. I know that
being the only straight one, the only
one who cares enough about our band to keep trying to get i
t back on track, is only going to be a
lot of irritating and frustrating work. To try to stay
will be foolish. But, at the same time, I know
that I can’t do anything else
but
stay."
