Weekend Book Give-Away: Dead to You

Looking for a thriller with a bit of a creep factor?  This week's book is Lisa McMann's brand new Dead to You.

Having been abducted at age seven, abandoned, a foster child, and homeless, Ethan, now sixteen, is happy to be home until his brother's suspicion and his own inability to remember something unspeakable from his early childhood begin to tear the family apart.    

Yipes!  That might be more than I can personally handle.  But for those of you who like dark psychological stuff like this, it might be just the thing. 

So...to be entered in the drawing to win Dead to You, please don't tell me about an unspeakable memory, but rather your very earliest happy memory!

Winner will be selected with Random Number Generator on Tuesday May 29, 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 like psychological books like this, but I'm kind of a strange one :)
Oooh earliest happy memory, let's see. I was three, maybe four and I lived in a mobile home with only three neighbors. One house had three boys and one was my age but was across a huge field of really tall grass, one had a girl my sister's age, and the other was an elderly woman. I had just come from across the tall grass when I saw a boy in our yard by our tree. I had never seen him before, he smiled at me and took my hand. He said "Hi, I'm Jacob, and I'm visiting my Grandma, wanna come in and play pokemon?" It was child-love at first pokemon invitation. We were instantly best friends.

Sadly we aren't friends any more, but that boy definitely changed my life, and that's why I can still remember that day 15 years later.

My latest happiest memory was being asked to prom by one of my best friends - he's from the south so he's SUCH a gentleman - right after he asked me my dad took me out to go dress shopping - so it was PERFECT timing <3

Well, I can't think of which happy memory is the earliest, but I do remember the first time my parents ever took me to Pike's Place Market. It was crowded (as usual) and completely overwhelming...I fell for the monkfish trick they always try to pull on kids (when they make the fish jump to scare you). One of the most vivid memories from that is my mom handing me some honey sticks to try...I've loved those ever since.

I lived in New York for a while when I was 3-4ish, and I have some awesome memories from then. For example, our house was right by the Hudson River, so during the summer, our grandma would take us swimming. Also, we had a huge hill in our backyard, so we'd ride sleighs down it whenever it snowed during the winter :) It was amazing.

I remember being with my parents at a childrens muesum and we were playing on a school bus, while these other people were trying to build a rainbow.
