Happy holidays everyone!!!
This week the Buzz Girls are celebrating books we loved and giving away fun gifts! Hmm, some books I loved as a teen....
There was the entire Anne of Green Gables series. Who didn't love the stories of the impish orphan who charms a whole town (and that dashing Gilbert at that!) I still love those books and recently, I purchased the entire boxed set as a "memory lane" thing.
I loved all of Lurlene McDaniel's books, even though I knew someone was going to die at the end of each one. They were all stories of teens who had chronic diseases, or terrible accidents...generally short life spans. I was pretty "emo" then and loved my once-per-week cries over my literary dramas.
I loved Lois Duncan's realistic spine-tinglers. My favorite was DON'T LOOK BEHIND YOU, a story about a teenage girl whose family goes into the witness protection program after her father is threatned. I loved all her books, but that one was my favorite. Pretty, popular girl loses her whole life and tries to cope. Great stuff.
For my giveaway this week...
That's right! An early release signed copy of HOW TO SALSA IN A SARI! To win, just leave a comment for me telling me your favorite teen read!
Have a great weekend!
