Midweek Book Give-Away: Switched

Holy cow! I forgot to post the book give-away for the weekend.  Ok...so this one goes through Friday.  Switched by Amanda Hocking just came out and hasn't hit our shelves yet, but already has 13 people waiting for it.  Looks like another sweet mixed up romantic fantasy book, right?  Think again:

When Wendy Everly was six years old her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her, and eleven years later Wendy learns that her mother was right and that she is actually a changeling troll, who, at the age of seventeen, must be returned to her rightful home.  

I don't know about you, but I'm tired of vampires, zombies, angels, and fairies.  So, do you think trolls are the new thing then?  Tell me why you think reading a book about a troll might be interesting, for your chance to win an ARC of this new book!

Winner will be selected by my buddy Random Number Generator on Friday February 3, 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 think it might be interesting because it's new. Vampires have already been redefined a dozen times, and so have all kinds of other fairy-tale folks, so a new trend will be much appreciated.

Well it must be interesting for I have never read anything about trolls to compare it with. I know about the changeling myth and stories and enjoy those, so giving those a modern flair hopefully won't fail.

My friend just read this (she got an advance copy, I guess) and she's been telling me to go get a copy for myself. What a neat coincidence that it's on the blog this week!

Well, obviously it'll be interesting because it's new, but what I'm really curious to see is how the author will twist and shift traditional troll myths to fit her book and how she will explain these new changes (for example, trolls are generally thought of as ugly, but they certainly don't seem ugly here!)

How could it not be interesting? I haven't read anything about trolls. Since trolls aren't really talked about much in books, it will be interesting to read this author's idea of them. Does she make them kind? Mean? It would be interesting to see...

RNG picked AC! I'll send the book to you next week (when I'm in the office) at Marysville.
