Win-It Wednesday: The Possibilities of Sainthood by Donna Freitas

The winner of Elizabeth Scott's Perfect You is... Sue Mickelson! Send me your address, Sue. Thanks for all the talk of great fictional friendships -- I have a ton of new books on my to-read list now... eek.sainthood.jpgThis week, I'm giving away a book that I just flew through. It's a completely gleeful read thanks to the funny/smart voice of its heroine. Author Donna Freitas summarized her book in a great interview with Cynthia Leitich Smith thusly: "The Possibilities of Sainthood is the story of Antonia Lucia Labella, a 15-year-old Italian girl from an immigrant family, living in Rhode Island. She has two main desires: 1) to become the first ever official living saint in Catholic history (and she's been writing the Pope in Rome once a month, every month since she was seven, proposing new saint ideas and herself as the ideal candidate); and 2) to land her first kiss." Ahhhhh! I just want to sigh thinking of it. So sweet! (And it got like 1000+ starred reviews.) Anyway, I bet you can guess what I'm going to ask this week... to enter to win, just comment below and let me know (drumroll, please...) what you're thankful for right this instant! Me? I'm thankful Onion Rye Bread, because I just ate that with my breakfast and it was seriously the most delicious thing ever. (And family and books and my home and all that, too, of course, but in this instant? Onion Rye Bread!). You?
