Win-It Wednesday: The Things a Brother Knows by Dana Reinhardt

The winner of last week's contest for Sorta Like a Rock Star by Matthew Quick is... Mary Ellen! Send me your address, ME.things300.jpgThis week, I'm giving away Dana Reinhardt's The Things a Brother Knows. This book knocked me out and made a sob bubble up in my throat near the end. I wrote an email to Dana right after I finished reading it and said, "SUCH an amazing book! An incredible journey. Entertaining and real characters and a non-message message on a really tough subject." So, you know, there's my vague review. Here's Gayle Forman's more eloquent one, which was on NPR (the other books she mentions are awesome too, of course). Anyway, here's your chance to win the hardcover of this incredible book. Just tell me what your favorite holiday gift was, if you celebrated... I'm nosy and curious, and I hope it was a book (but I won't hold my breath). I think mine was the leopard-print Snuggie my brother got me. Um, I'm serious. And no, I won't be showing a photo. But I will say it's great for reading in the winter--my old apartment gets drafty and it keeps me warm and hands-free! I'll pick a winner next week. Good luck!
