The winner of last week's contest for Willow by Julia Hoban, picked at random, is Sara of What A Girl Reads!
This week's contest is for a book that comes out in March, Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson.
“Dead girl walking,” the boys say in the halls.
“Tell us your secret,” the girls whisper, one toilet to another.
I am that girl.
I am the space between my thighs, daylight shining through.
I am the bones they want, wired on a porcelain frame.
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.In her most emotionally wrenching, lyrically written book since the multiple-award-winning Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson explores Lia’s descent into the powerful vortex of anorexia, and her painful path toward recovery.

It'll change every once in a while so MAKE SURE you check to see if it's still the same. (Also, go check out YA Connection while you're at it cos we both work hard at that thing. :P) +1 if you post about this contest (and link to this post) somewhere. Link me to wherever you post, by the way.
