loser/queen giveaway

On July 2010, readers had a chance to write a novel. Each week, readers voted on major plot twists. The winning choice was then encorporated into the next week's chapters. Now that voting—and the book—are complete, LOSER/QUEEN has been published as a paperback and packed with extras from the author… and readers will have the opportunity to own the book they helped create!

What a great concept! Missed the fun? Here's your chance to read the finished copy.

Book Summary from Simon & Schuster Children's Publisher:
Cammy Hall is what anyone would describe as a loser. She lives with her grandparents and has adopted their way of life… right down to the comfortable shoes and early bedtime. And can she help it that she actually likes to knit? At school, her skills with knitting needles and some yarn go completely unappreciated: people like Bekka Bell reign while Cammy and her best friend, the fearless Danish exchange student Gerdi, watch from the sidelines. Cammy’s used to being an outsider; after years of humiliating moments, her goal is simply to fly under the radar. Then she suddenly starts receiving mysterious text messages that lead her right to all the embarrassing secrets about the most popular kids in school. Cammy never expected to be able to climb up the high school food chain, and the agenda of the texter may be questionable—but how can she possibly give up the chance to be Queen?

Thanks to the wonderful people at Simon & Schuster two winners will recieve a finished copy of loser/queen, plus one of those two will also receive an adorable handmade keychain to go with their book. 

To enter, leave a comment below with an email addy.  Enter by December 29th, I will announce the winners around the 30th.  THERE WILL BE TWO WINNERS! Watch for my review this week.
Good luck!
