Contest: Stealing Heaven

« Back to Table of Contents.


My name is Danielle. I'm eighteen. I've been stealing things for as long as I can remember.

Dani has been trained as a thief by the best - her mother. Together, they move from town to town, targeting wealthy homes and making a living by stealing antique silver. They never stay in one place long enough to make real connections, real friends - a real life.

In the beach town of Heaven, though, everything changes. For the first time, Dani starts to feel at home. She's making friends and has even met a guy. But these people can never know the real Dani - because of who she is. When it turns out that her new friend lives in the house they've targeted for their next job and the cute guy is a cop, Dani must question where her loyalties lie: with the life she's always known - or the one she's always wanted.


Have not read this so I can't recommend it or not, buuuuut here's a guest blog by Elizabeth. This is a hardcover I'm giving away. Same as always -

1 entry per person.+ 1 if you post about this week anywhere. (If you already did so for another contest or just because you're awesome, no need to do it again. Just relink/remind me)

+ 1 if you post about this contest/Elizabeth's guest blog.

+ 1 for a secret criterion. (Yeah, I suck like that.)

End date: Dec 21st
-
Girl Week is a week-long event here on the blog celebrating strong YA heroines and feminism. Find out more about it here.

Hey! For some reason, this embedded comment form makes most people click twice before the comment is processed and published. It's not you - it's just that it's a new Blogger feature with kinks and all that. (But I adore it and don't wanna get rid of it!) I removed Captcha to make the process easier. You don't have to rewrite the comments twice; just click on SUBMIT twice and it should work. If not, email me. Thanks! -Steph
