Last Contest: Wintergirls + If I Stay

« Back to Table of Contents.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeenyear- old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she fi nds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck...
A sophisticated, layered, and heartachingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends, the choices we all make—and the ultimate choice Mia commands.



Annnnd no description of Wintergirls anywhere. It's about eating disorders, and believe me, it's amazing.

Both are 09 ARCs. :) Comment below - same as always. + 1 if you mention Girl Week, and that's the only bonus since this only a flash contest. Ends tomorrow.

Girl Week was absolutely amazing Steph! I can't wait for it in '09!

Oh, and I found a description of Wintergirls, but I stole it from Book Chic's In My Mailbox blog.


Lia and Cassie are best friends, wintergirls frozen in matchstick bodies, competitors in a deadly contest to see who can be the skinniest. But what comes after size zero and size double-zero? When Cassie succumbs to the demons within, Lia feels she is being haunted by her friend’s restless spirit.

I've posted about Girl Week on my blog (http://justblindedbookreviews.blogspot.com/2008/12/what-did-you-say.html).

jocelyn said...

(Also, I posted about Girl Week the other day but hadn't been able to comment again-stupid IE7 issues-to tell you until now)

You've been giving away some fantastic books and I'm going to have to find a day (when I don't have 10 million holiday-y things going on) to catch up comments on all the awesome content-y posts I've been reading but couldn't-literally couldn't-commment on!

Jena said...

am I in time? can I still enter this contest? I want to read Wintergirls!

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
