Thanks to those who participated in our Halloween giveaway! Looks like it was trickier than I thought, because not one person matched up all the authors to the costumes. So I randomly selected a winner and...
congrats! Please email your book choice and we'll get those in the mail to you (and thanks for thinking I was Kirsten Hubbard, who is about the size of my pinky).
And in case you're curious...
Batgirl- Sarah Ockler
Zombie Barbie-Mindi Scott
Sensible Ballerina-April Henry
Super It-Michael Northrop
Sassy Waitress-Melissa Walker
Ninja Turtle--Hannah Harrington
Princess- Emily Wing Smith
Chiquita Banana--Kirsten Hubbard
And next Friday, we'll announce the winner of The Contemps Challenge. One lucky reader will be 21 books richer very soon. For more details, click here. There is still time to enter-- deadline is November 15 (Monday). We'll cut it off that night, so tell your friends. And your boss. And your school librarian. And that boy in art class. And your mom. And your film-producer uncle.
We're the Contemps and we are passionate about realistic fiction because these are the books that remind us we're not alone in this real world. Our mission is simple - to spotlight contemporary fiction for young adults. We'll spotlight a new or fairly recent contemporary title every Tuesday and Wednesday. Thanks for stopping by and we hope you'll spread the word and come back again and again. We'd love to be THE resource on the web for contemporary young adult fiction.
