Win-It Wednesday: Thirteen Reasons Why

Love, love, love all the ideas about what era you'd like to live in (or visit). I think I agree with some of you that it would be fun to go back for a medieval ball or a San Francisco 60s-style protest, but the here and now is pretty much where I'd like to stay in a permanent way. However, one of you will get transported back in time with Shannon Hale's Book of a Thousand Days, and the randomly chosen winner is... feudal-loving Ink! Send me your address, I.cover_thirteenreasons.jpg This week, I'm giving away a copy of Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why. I actually read this book because a bunch of you guys mentioned it in blog comments (I'm listening!), and I'm glad I did. In case you don't know, it's about a girl who commits suicide and leaves tapes that describe why she did it... the protagonist is a boy named Clay who receives the tapes one day. We listen along with him... and Hannah's story is incredibly touching, not to mention eerie (I can't imagine listening to it on audio!). And not to get shallow, but don't you just adore what Hannah's wearing on the cover? Those soft ballet hues and the gorgeous shoes? So lovely. Anyway, to win a copy of Jay's fantastic debut, just comment below and tell me what you're looking forward to as summer approaches. I'm going to my first backyard bbq on Saturday, so that's mine--hot dogs and burgers and watermelon and sunshine!
