Contest: Win Hate List by Jennifer Brown!

Tuesday, October 27, 2009 |

Before this, I interviewed Jennifer Brown, author of Hate List. Well now, I have a signed copy to giveaway! Here's a little something about it:

Five months ago, Valerie Leftman’s boyfriend, Nick, opened fire on their school cafeteria. Shot trying to stop him, Valerie inadvertently saves the life of a classmate, but is implicated in the shootings because of the list she helped create. A list of people and things they hated. The list her boyfriend used to pick his targets.

Now, after a summer of seclusion, Val is forced to confront her guilt as she returns to school to complete her senior year. Haunted by the memory of the boyfriend she still loves and navigating rocky relationships with her family, former friends and the girl whose life she saved, Val must come to grips with the tragedy that took place and her role in it, in order to make amends and move on with her life.

How To Enter:

This sounds like an absolutely awesome book! Please enter me.

Love List
1. My family. Specifically my Mom. Even though she nags me sometimes, I will always love her to death. I’m not embarrassed to hug her and snuggle up next to her in front of friends or strangers.
2. My dog. He’s just SO cute and lovable, despite his annoying quirks (If the door is cracked shut, he can whack it open with his paw. He has come pretty close to giving me a heart attack.)
3. My books. *stares dreamily at bookshelf*

+2 I learned that Jennifer is the youngest of three siblings.
