AND THE WINNER IS, by random draw...LINDA GRIMES!!
To Kill a Mockingbird. Scout. Jem. Boo Radley.
Gregory Peck as the hot single-dad campaigner for justice.
Oh, I'm sorry, I got distracted for a minute. *shakes self*
Anyway. You loved the book and the movie, right? I even loved the play.
So imagine if you took the spirit of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD--the hard, cold edge of justice standing up to powerful forces, the complexity of crime and personal relations in a small community--and you infused it into a YA novel? With excellent, turn-the-page writing and strong, breathing characters?
You'd have Daisy Whitney's debut novel THE MOCKINGBIRDS, which came out yesterday!!
I had the privilege to read this book a while back, and let me tell you, it's good. It's strong, and brave, and very different from the rest of the books out there on the shelves right now. And I'd like to share it with YOU.
To win a brand-new, shipped-to-your-house copy of THE MOCKINGBIRDS, all you have to do is comment below, with:
--your favorite scene from the book or movie of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
--OR the reason you want to read this book!!
Contest will close Friday morning at 8 am my time, and I'll buy the book and ship it off to you. North American entries only, I'm afraid. (yes, Canada!)
You want to win? Want to see what everybody's talking about? GO!
