Comment on all four entries, and you have a chance to win FLIP by Martyn Bedford. (U.S. and Canadian commentors only.)

One December night, 14-year-old Alex goes to bed. He wakes up to find himself in the wrong bedroom, in an unfamiliar house, in a different part of the country, and it's the middle of June. Six months have disappeared overnight. The family at the breakfast table are total strangers.

And when he looks in the mirror, another boy's face stares back at him. A boy named Flip. Unless Alex finds out what's happened and how to get back to his own life, he may be trapped forever inside a body that belongs to someone else.

Questions of identity, the will to survive, and what you're willing to sacrifice to be alive make this extraordinary book impossible to put down.

And before I forget (which happens all too often, lately :D) the winner of last week's givaway for Amy Kathleen Ryan's GLOW is:

Elizabeth McKinney

Congrats, again, Beth! I'll send that out this week.

Jump in everyone! Comment away.

Happy reading,

The Ladies of ACP

  1. Hey, just noticed that I won last week. Thanks so much. It's fun being part of the critique process, and I hope it helped the featured writers. They're doing a great job. Writing is hard work!
