Weekend Book Give-Away: Winter Town

Winter break can be many things.  It can be a time filled with family and fun traditions.  There are often trips to the mall.  Maybe if you are lucky, there is snow.  If you are really lucky, you have time to read a few books.

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.

I'm looking forward to spending time with S.A. this winter. He went to live at college, so we don't hang out as much as we used to. We started out as team mates; fellow members of TAG (currently TAP, if I recall correctly) when it first started, then became friends after a few weeks of helping each other out with pretty much everything. It's been four and a half years, and I currently consider him to be one of my best friends. It'll be good to see him again =)

I am looking forward to hanging out with my friend Janessa. We went to preschool together and have been friends forever. over the years we have gotten closer to eachother, even though we have lived far apart.

I can't wait to see my best friend...she lives in Mukilteo, which doesn't seem that far away until you add in the fact that both of us have busy parents and no other way to get to each other. The best part about extended breaks is that she gets to come over and stay for a few days with me :) Both of us have changed a lot since we first met (way back in kidnergarten), but if one thing hasn't changed, it's our relationship. We're still as open and easy-going with each other as we ever were.
