Weekend Book Giveaway: Ketchup Clouds

This week's book is Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher:

http://catalog.sno-isle.org/polaris/search/title.aspx?ctx=1.1033.0.0.6&cn=662491
Zoe has an unconventional pen pal-Mr. Stuart Harris, a Texas Death Row inmate and convicted murderer. But then again, Zoe has an unconventional story to tell. A story about how she fell for two boys, betrayed one of them, and killed the other. Hidden away in her backyard shed in the middle of the night with a jam sandwich in one hand and a pen in the other, Zoe gives a voice to her heart and her fears after months of silence. Mr. Harris may never respond to Zoe's letters, but at least somebody will know her story-somebody who knows what it's like to kill a person you love. Only through her unusual confession can Zoe hope to atone for her mistakes that have torn lives apart, and work to put her own life back together again.

For a chance to win this Advanced Readers Copy of Ketchup Clouds, tell me about something you did that you regretted, and how you atoned for it.

Winner will be selected by Dawn on Tuesday, February 4, 2014. 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 can't think of anything that I really regret, I try to not focus on things of the past that can't be changed. If someone is upset with me I do apologize and be especially nice to them for a while after that though.

Once me and my friends were talking about this one girl we didn't really like behind her back. I felt really bad about it and dedicated time to really get to know her and apologized for being rude to her.

I had tried to help a friend with one of their relationships since I knew on the other end, it was a bit rocky, so I talked to him about but he ended up getting mad. Afterwards I apologized and explained my reasoning and showed him a poem I had written since I don't show many people them.

I absolutely try to make sure that eery activity that i do does not have a lot of stress with it. But when my friends asked me to help them plan a surprise party for one of my other friends, I of course said yes, but of course it was super stressful and i regretted becoming such a big part of it, but i just made the best of it and it turned out okay.

Once in the fifth grade I told this girl that I would invite her to my birthday party, but I ended up not inviting her. I still feel bad about it so I'm always super nice to her when I talk to her.
