Weekend Book Give-Away: Various Positions

Have you ever worked super hard to try and be great at something you love?   Maybe it came easy at first, but to become truly great a something, it can be back and heartbreaking. This week's book is Various Positions by Martha Schabas is about a girl whose hard work is jeopardized by emotional complications:

When talented, dedicated fourteen-year-old Georgia Slade becomes a student in an elite Toronto ballet academy, her confusing feelings toward one of her teachers lead to disaster.   

To win this book, tell me what lead you to a disaster (you don't need to tell us the disaster, unless you want to).  Or if that is too embarrassing, what are you talented at and dedicated to (dancing? music? books?)

Winner will be selected by my buddy Random Number Generator on Tuesday April 17, 2012, as Dawn will be on Spring Break for the first part of April. 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.

Well...there have certainly been many disasters that I am the direct or indirect cause of, that's for sure. Many, many times it's been my own obstinacy that ends up being my downfall. In 8th grade, I got into a huge argument with a best friend because we were both to stubborn to admit we were wrong, and even though it didn't last long, it was a horrible, horrible disaster I wish I hadn't caused.

What lead me to a disater multiple times is my inability to finish something and my tendency to blame others.

What lead to me disaster is procrastination. Yes, cliche, but very true.
