"I was reading this book, and thinking to myself "how on earth was Mary Pearson able to come up with this book?" It is remarkable. It is not to be missed, by anyone from fans of speculative fiction to fans of novels in verse (though only a small part is in verse) to fans of adult "literary fiction"."
Does that make you want to read the book? Well, now is your chance. Publisher Henry Holt and Co. has generously offered me five copies of the book to give away to readers of this blog. All you have to do is comment on this post between now and next Tuesday, June 24th, at 9:00 am Pacific Time. Optionally (this won't change your chances of winning, but I'll appreciate it and I'll post the list of responses), use your comment to recommend another futuristic, speculative, science fiction or dystopian fiction title aimed at young adults. (And if you want to recommend a title and not be entered in the giveaway, just say so).
I'll randomly select five winners. If you are a winner, I will email you to ask for your mailing address, and then pass it along to Henry Holt. So, please make sure to include your email address when you comment (it will NOT be displayed) so that I know how to find you. You don't have to have a blog to participate.
You can also double your chances of winning by entering a similar giveaway at A Patchwork of Books. I'm going to check Amanda's list of winners, and strike them from mine before the drawing, so that no one ends up with two copies. Because this is a book that should be shared widely. I hope that no one minds that caveat. Good luck!
