Weekend Book Give-Away: Promised

This week's book is the third in the Birthmarked series, Promised by Caragh M. O'Brien, which I'm sure some of you must be excited about, as there are 19 holds on this book right now!

After defying the ruthless Enclave, surviving the wasteland, and upending the rigid matriarchy of Sylum, Gaia Stone now faces her biggest challenge ever.  She must lead the people of Sylum back to the Enclave and persuade the Protectorat to grant them refuge from the wasteland.  In Gaia's absence, the Enclave has grown more cruel, more desperate to experiment on mothers from outside the wall, and now the stakes of cooperating or rebelling have never been higher.  Is Gaia ready, as a leader, to sacrifice what--or whom--she loves most?

For a chance to win this book, tell me what has been your biggest challenge ever, and how you dealt with it.  Just three or four sentences will do.

Winner will be selected with Random Number Generator on Tuesday November 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.

My bigger challenge ever was when I went to three schools in sixth grade. I had to make new friends and had to adapt to different circumstance. I had straight A's at all three schools, but I had to make new friends. I dealt with it by going up to people and saying,"hi". I made many new friends and I overcame my challenge.
