Win-It Wednesday: Amor and Summer Secrets

The winner of Looks by Madeleine George is... Llehn! Congratulations, and send me your address, L.amor_and_summer_secrets_cover.jpgDiana Rodriguez Wallach was here to share her Cover Story a while ago, and now--before summer's over--you have a chance to win a signed copy of her first novel, Amor and Summer Secrets. The description has me needing to read this before August is over: Fifteen-year-old Mariana Ruiz has no desire to step foot outside her affluent Philadelphia suburb. BUT she may not have a choice. With total disregard to the high-glam Sweet 16 her best friend is hosting, Mariana's father ships her off to a tiny mountain town in Puerto Rico to stay with family she's never met. The heat is merciless, the food is spicy, and only one of her relatives--her distant cousin Lilly--speaks English. Her consolation prize is Lilly's homespun Puerto Rican Quinceãnera. Only the riotously festive party exposes Mariana to more than just her culture. She uncovers new friends, her first love, and a family secret that's been buried on the island for more than 30 years. Sounds pretty awesome, right? So, to enter to win, just comment below and tell me about the best thing you've done this summer--could be eating ice cream or going on a boat or working a summer job or kissing (I need kissing stories!). Whatever. Just tell me below and fulfill my need for summer tales. Oh, and +1 extra entry if you visit/comment on my recent posts at Teen Fiction Cafe (about my first love) or on The Book Girl Reviews (about weddings. Yes, I know I'm obsessed lately.) Happy Wednesday!
