Happy Holidays GIVEAWAY #1: Peace Love and Baby Ducks

I had the pleasure of seeing Lauren Myracle on Friday night at the Doylestown Bookshop. She read an excerpt from her recent YA book, Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks. Check out a video interview with her HERE.

Fifteen-year-old Carly has a problem—two, actually: her younger sister Anna’s new “real live Hooters-esque boobs.” While Carly was away getting self-actualized at a back-to-nature camp, Anna was busy turning into a hottie, a state that makes “granola-girl” Carly uncomfortably jealous.

Now back in her privileged Atlanta suburb, Carly is struggling with feelings of insecurity as she tries to reconcile her newly acquired bohemian belief system with the incredible wealth in which she has been raised. In addition, her crush hardly notices her, she feels trapped between her rival best friends, and her parents seem to be growing more distant with each other by the day.

I'm giving away a signed copy of Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks to one lucky commenter. All you have to do is comment below and include your email address so I know how to contact you. Enter by midnight on December 10th.

Lisa Dez said...

Ooo! Oooooo! Pick me!

+2 follower--I'd follow you anywhere, Suzie! But not in a stalker sort of way. Okay, maybe a little stalkerish, but not really dangerous. Except if you don't email or twitter me at least 23 times everyday--that's once every hour except the one I'll let you sleep.

+1 for the twitter link I'm about to post.

+3 for the blog post that I'm about to write--just check your sidebar if you don't believe me ;)

You know where to find me, because I know you're secretly stalking me too.

Thanks for having this contest.

The book cover and plot have taken my attention. I like the way the pictures are used in the title as opposed to words - neat.


Happy holidays:)
