(CONTEST) Miles From Ordinary by Carol Lynch Williams

Author: Carol Lynch Williams
ARC copy
Release Date: March 15th, 2011


Thirteen-year-old Lacey wakes to a beautiful summer morning excited to begin her new job at the library, just as her mother is supposed to start work at the grocery store. Lacey hopes that her mother's ghosts have finally been laid to rest; after all, she seems so much better these days, and they really do need the money. But as the hours tick by and memories come flooding back, a day full of hope spins terrifyingly out of control....

“No one can get inside the head and heart of a 13-year-old girl better than Carol Lynch Williams, and I mean no one," said James S. Jacobs, Professor of Children's Literature at Brigham Young University, of her breakout novel, The Chosen One. Now this award-winning YA author brings us an equally gripping story of a girl who loves her mother, but must face the truth of what life with that mother means for both of them.



Thanks to St. Martin's Press, I have 2 ARC copies to giveaway!  



1. This contest is open to the USA only.
2. No need to be a follower, but I would love it if you would!
3. Leave a comment with an email address to contact you with if you win.
