Kid-Lit Giveaway Hop - Win a book!


As part of Children's Book Week, I'm giving you the chance to win a copy of An Unstill Life.  All you need to do is comment on this post, and on May 19th I'll use a random number generator to pick a winner.  Easy, huh?

About An Unstill Life...



Things at home are rough for fifteen-year-old Livvie Quinn. Jules, her beloved older sister is sick again after being cancer free for almost ten years.  Her mom becomes more frantic and unapproachable every day. School isn’t much better.  Just when she needs them most, her closest friends get boyfriends and have little time for Livvie – except to set her up on a series of disastrous blind dates.

Livvie seeks refuge in the art room - the one place her synesthesia helps rather than hinders her - and finds Bianca, the school ‘freak’.  Free-spirited and confident, Bianca is everything Livvie isn’t. Shaken by her mom’s desperation, her sister’s deteriorating condition, and abandoned by her friends, Livvie finds comfort and an attraction she never felt before with Bianca.

When their relationship is discovered, Livvie and Bianca become victims of persecution and bullying. School authorities won’t help and even forbid the pair to attend the Winter Formal as a couple. If Livvie defies them and goes, she risks expulsion and further ridicule from her classmates. At home, her mother’s behavior escalates to new levels of crazy and Jules is begging for help to end the pain once and for all.

While searching for the strength to make her life her own, Livvie must decide how far she’s willing to go for the people she loves  

And why not go and check out all the other books you could win on this hop?

  11. This is an interesting story and sounds eerily similar to something a couple in a high school in my area suffered through (without the synesthesia). michelle_willms at yahoo dot com.
