It has been so fun to share books that I love, books from the publisher who will publish my own book. I struggled to choose the last book I would share with you and give away. I thought maybe it should be a really well known book, something really big. Knopf has published plenty of “big” books that have won prestigious awards and gone on to be best sellers.
But then I decided that I really want to share a book that I think is wonderful, but maybe didn’t get as much hype as other books. A “quiet” book, some call them. So I choose this book.
When seven-year-old Julianna Baker first set eyes on Bryce Loski, she flipped. It wasn’t until 8th grade that she started to see beneath the surface of his beautiful blue eyes.
It’s also now a movie, which looks adorable, but I haven’t seen it yet. I’m going to though!
So to enter, you can either just say you want it, but if you are brave enough, you can also share something about your first childhood crush. Something embarrassing or cute or both! I’ll go first:
I had my first “boyfriend” in seventh grade. He asked me out at the skating rink and we held hands while we skated around in circles. I felt weak in the knees. We held hands in the halls and hugged each other before we went to class. Yes, this was scandalous, but what can I say? I was in love. I mean I wrote it all over my journal. A+L=TLA (True Love Always.)
And the jerk dumped me two months later. I guess I didn’t put out enough.
