Weekend Book Give-Away: A Midsummer's Nightmare

What were you hoping to do this summer?  Have you done it yet?  Well it is not over yet...plenty of time to do the things you want to do, review books, and maybe win some prizes!

This weekend's book give-away is A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger.  If you have read Keplinger's other books (The DUFF: (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) and Shut Out) you know she is a young author who knows what teens are really like, and doesn't pull punches.  This new book looks as edgy as ever, when Whitley's summer got off to a bad start almost immediately:

Suffering a hangover from a graduation party, eighteen-year-old Whitley is blindsided by the news that her father has moved into a house with his fiancée, her thirteen-year-old daughter Bailey, and her son Nathan, in whose bed Whitley had awakened that morning. 

Yipes!  Definitely sounds like a read for mature teens.

For a chance to win this book, tell me about a time someone blindsided or disappointed you, and how you got over it.

Winner will be selected with Random Number Generator on Tuesday August 7, 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.

My mom almost forgot my birthday once. She remembered just the day before. Well, actually, she didn't remember it. My sister had to remind her of it, and I'm pretty sure she would have completely forgotten it if she hadn't been reminded.

No one really disappointed me majorly anytime...My orthodontist said I would have my braces on for six months but they were on for a year and two months.

A time someone disappointed me would be whenever I got my expectations too high for that person...unrealistically high. But I got over it just as time went on, realizing that my imagination had gotten the better of me.
