Weekend Book Give-Away: Winter Town
And like with many things, the older you get, the more complicated it all seems to be. Who doesn't long for those days of childhood when you could have a break with no homework, no job, no responsibilities, just playing in the snow, drinking hot cocoa and enjoying the wonders of the season?
Stephen Emond (author of Happyface) has a new book just coming out called Winter Town:
Every winter, straight-laced, Ivy League bound Evan looks forward to a visit from Lucy, a childhood pal who moved away after her parent's divorce. But when Lucy returns this year, he learns just how much a person can change in twelve months.
I'm in the middle of reading this right now and am really enjoying this realistic and emotional book. To get a chance to win this brand new book (which hasn't even hit our shelves yet!) Tell me about who you are looking forward to hanging out with this winter, and how your relationship has changed (or not) over the years.
Winner will be selected by my buddy Random Number Generator on Tuesday December 13, 2012. Be sure to leave a name with your entry, and check back to see if you won. To win you must be a teen (6th-12th grade, or 12-18) who uses a Sno-Isle Library.
