A biiiiig giveaway for you!

Back in May I gave a rave review of The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly and have already recommended it to several middle graders over the past couple of months, to good results. I love the story, love the main character, and love the cover, and the kids I've passed it onto seem to agree.

The kind people over at Henry Holt have offered up three copies of the finished books for me to give to three lucky winners....a pretty nice Sunday afternoon treat I would say!

To enter, leave a comment on this post by Wednesday night at 11:59pm, Eastern time, with an email address (in case you win) if you don't have a blog for me to go to. Open to U.S. residents only. To get a second and a third entry, blog about the contest and/or Twitter about it. Leave a separate comment for each entry.

Thanks again Henry Holt!

I haven't read this one yet but I really want to.

In fact, I broke one of my own "rules" and used the first line in a little Facebook contest I am running with my friends. I post the first lines of a book (and we're from Texas, and it's summer, so it was perfect) as my status and the first person to comment with the title gets a point. First one to 25 will win.
