Willow Contest! This is HUGE!

March 2, 2009

Hi everyone!

There’s a huge contest I thought you should have a heads up on.

It’s for Willow by Julia Hoban…. which looks superb, by the way.

Here’s a little something about the bookSeven months ago, on a rainy March night, sixteen year- old Willow’s parents died in a horrible car accident. Willow was driving. Now her older brother barely speaks to her, her new classmates know her as the killer orphan girl, and Willow is blocking the pain by secretly cutting herself. But when one boy —one sensitive, soulful boy—discovers Willow’s secret, it sparks an intense relationship that turns the “safe” world Willow has created for herself upside down.
You Can Buy It Here: http://www.amazon.com/Willow-Julia-Hoban/dp/0803733569

This Contest Starts: March 1 (Pre-orders count of course!)
And Ends: April 30 (The book is released April 2)
