Remember in an earlier post I talked about maybe having a contest? Well I said once i reached 20 followers I would do that. So I decided that maybe if I told you what was up for grabs, it would move it along. So I have two books up for grabs, and these are my favorite books-
1) Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson (paperback)
Since the beginning of the school year, high school freshman Melinda has found that it's been getting harder and harder for her to speak out loud: "My throat is always sore, my lips raw.... Every time I try to talk to my parents or a teacher, I sputter or freeze.... It's like I have some kind of spastic laryngitis." What could have caused Melinda to suddenly fall mute? Could it be due to the fact that no one at school is speaking to her because she called the cops and got everyone busted at the seniors' big end-of-summer party? Or maybe it's because her parents' only form of communication is Post-It notes written on their way out the door to their nine-to-whenever jobs. While Melinda is bothered by these things, deep down she knows the real reason why she's been struck mute...
2) Undone by Brooke Taylor (hardcover)
When Kori Kitlzer, the “dark angel” of the 8th grade, tells Serena Moore that they are more alike than she thinks, Serena is instantly intrigued. As their friendship solidifies and their lives entwine, Serena tries to become more like the fearless, outspoken, and ambitious Kori. Soon Serena doesn’t know where she begins and Kori ends. But when a twist of fate yanks Kori away from Serena, she will need to find a way to complete her best friend’s life left undone.
Undone is a striking debut novel about friendship, family, and the secrets we keep from the people to whom we are closest.
I just reviewed this book, alittle while ago. And I said it was the best book ever. So I wish to share it to some lucky winner.
S0 if you want a chance to win one of these books, follow me and wait a bit until we have reached 20 follows. But you can only ask for one, once I open the contest, I'll ask you to leave a comment saying which book you would like to possibly own. Don't leave a comment here for the contest. I'll open the real contest when i reach 20 followers and then I'll set up some rules for it. Thanks. And any publicity for the contest would be appreciated.
Note: This contest will only be open to American residents. Sorry, but i can't afford to send anything out side of the U.S.A.
