American Girl On Saturn (Giveaway Included!!!)

Description Provided by Goodreads:
The summer after graduation is supposed to be that first real taste of freedom - but not for eighteen-year-old Chloe Branson. Just as that breeze of freedom is making its way into her galaxy, her secret-service-agent dad drops a meteor-sized bomb of bad news on her and her sisters. An attempt has been made on the lives of Canadian boyband, Spaceships Around Saturn, during their USA tour, and the guys have to go into hiding ASAP. The only problem? In the midst of the crisis and media frenzy, their dad volunteered to hide the their house. Six-year-old Emery is as ecstatic as any self-proclaimed Saturnite would be, but Chloe and her seventeen-year-old sister Aralie watch their summer plans crash and burn like a falling star. The SAS guys aren't happy with the situation, either. Bad boy Jules picks fights with Aralie about everything from his Twitter followers to his laundry, and heart-throb Benji can't escape Emery's fangirlisms for more than three minutes. But after the super-cute Milo kisses Chloe during a game of hide-and-seek, she finally understands what Emery means when she talks about SAS being "out of this world." If this is what Saturn feels like, Chloe doesn't want to come back to Earth.

Just to let y'all know it was really hard to choose just one excerpt, I hope you like it as much as I did!!:
       He reaches toward the tray and grabs the lone Oreo. “Okay, this is my last one for the night,” he says. “Half it with me?”
      Seriously? If I wasn’t the envy of every Saturnite in the world just by sitting across the table from him, I’m definitely the envy of them now because the Milo Grayson wants to half his precious Oreo with me. And the thing that sucks the most is that no one knows about it to be jealous of me!
      He holds the cookie up and waits for a response.
      “Yeah, we can half it,” I say.
      I reach across the table for it, but he jerks his arm back. The sleeve of his T-shirt hugs his bicep tightly, and oh how I wish to be that fabric.
     “Not so fast,” he says. “Let’s make it interesting.”
      Could this be any more interesting? Hello – you’re gorgeous and famous and sharing cookies with me! Any more ‘interest’ and I might burst like a firework.
      “If you get the side with the cream, I’ll give you my honest male opinion about your checkout line drama today,” he says. “But if I get the cream side, you have to tell me, honestly, who you think the best looking guy is in Spaceships Around Saturn.”
      Oh God. He’s for real. Does he know? He totally knows. He knows I’m lusting for him from behind this glass of milk and tattoo magazine. He knows that his eyes make me melt and that I clearly watch him on Twitter because I know all about amazzzzzing. Now he wants to make me ‘fess up.
      “Deal.” I say it before I can chicken out.
       I can always lie and say Benji’s name. He’s the fan favorite anyway. Benji Baccarini  is Spaceships Around Saturn for so many girls.
       He leans forward, positions himself over the table, and holds up that fated Oreo. I push my glass of milk aside because the last thing I want is to knock it over with my quivering nerves. Then I lean toward him, grip the cookie with my fingers, and inhale every scent of his body wash that I can while I twist my half of the Oreo away from his half.
And because I just couldn't decide which except to use here's an excerpt of another excerpt
(Did you really think I could choose just one? hehe):
      “You want in the loop?” I ask.
      He nods rapidly, and his smile bounces up and down.
     “Okay,” I say. “Spell ‘loop’ backward, and you’ll totally be in it.”
     I wait half a second for the word to click in his brain before I push him with all my energy into the cold water behind him. A splash of H2O floods the poolside concrete and splatters over my feet as Noah bobs to the surface. I rush to the patio door before he has a chance to climb out and throw me in.
    But Milo blocks my escape.
    “Are you free tonight?” he asks.
    “As free as I can be on a lockdown,” I reply.
   He slides the patio door open and motions me inside. “I’ll hold Noah back,” he says. “As long as you promise to meet me out here at midnight.”

This seems like a really good book and I mean come on who out there hasn't imagined what their life would be like if Nathan, Jay, Siva, Max, and Tom from The Wanted crashed at their place or Liam, Louis, Niall, Harry, and Zayn from One Direction? I know I can definitely picture Jay and Nathan at my place (lol!). So far I have big expectation for this book and I hope one of you decides to buy this book at well because it seems like a must read lough out loud kind of book and I will certainly be buying it. And now for the giveaway!!

1 signed paperback + swag (US only)
