Weekend Book Giveaway: Reality Boy

http://catalog.sno-isle.org/polaris/search/title.aspx?ctx=1.1033.0.0.6&cn=650462This week we are giving away the Advancd Readers Copy for a book I am dying to read, Reality Boy by Printz Honor author A.S. King (who also wrote great books such as Ask the Passengers and The Dust of 100 Dogs.)


This fearless portrayal of a boy on the edge explores the desperate reality of a former child "star" struggling to break free of his anger. Gerald Faust started feeling angry even before his mother invited a reality TV crew into his five-year-old life. Twelve years later, he's still haunted by his rage-filled youth--which the entire world got to watch from every imaginable angle--and his anger issues have resulted in violent outbursts, zero friends, and clueless adults dumping him in the special education room at school. No one cares that Gerald has tried to learn to control himself; they're all just waiting for him to snap. And he's starting to feel dangerously close to doing just that...until he chooses to create possibilities for himself that he never knew he deserved.

Wowza!  For your chance to win this incredible sounding new book, tell me about a time you got so frustrated or mad, you wanted to snap.  Or if you can't think of an incident, tell me about something (such as an issue) that makes you get all worked up.

 Winner will be selected with Random Number Generator on Tuesday, November 12, 2013. 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.

Each time my cousin acts innocent and cries that no one loves makes my mad every time.

I get mad when people are abusive and not totally in love with animals. There have been times where I felt very close to snapping when someone couldn't see the importance of being kind to an animal.

Whenever someone acts like they are better then everyone else. I can't stand it.
