New book giveaways for September!
School supplies, new shoes, fresh haircuts, the sounds of school buses in the morning...these are a few of my favorite things! You know what else I love?? Giving away books!! I love giving away books so much that I will be hosting TWO book giveaways this month.
Today, I am happy to announce that Hachette Book Group has generously offered to giveaway FIVE free copies of The Blue Star by Tony Earley.
About the book:
The Blue Star by Tony Earley
Paperback: 336 pages
Publisher: Little, Brown & Co. (Mar. 2008, hardcover; Aug. 2009, paperback)
Seven years ago, readers everywhere fell in love with Jim Glass, the precocious ten-year-old at the heart of Tony Earley's bestseller Jim the Boy. Now a teenager, Jim returns in another tender and wise story of young love on the eve of World War Two.
Jim Glass has fallen in love, as only a teenage boy can fall in love, with his classmate Chrissie Steppe. Unfortunately, Chrissie is Bucky Bucklaw's girlfriend, and Bucky has joined the Navy on the eve of war. Jim vows to win Chrissie's heart in his absence, but the war makes high school less than a safe haven, and gives a young man's emotions a grown man's gravity. With the uncanny insight into the well-intentioned heart that made Jim the Boy a favorite novel for thousands of readers, Tony Earley has fashioned another nuanced and unforgettable portrait of America in another time—making it again even realer than our own day.
Read a great review of The Blue Star in the New York Times Book Review, written by Scott Turow.
