The Caribbean Anyone?

Winner of the Day: TALI please e-mail us your name and address at author2author(dot)blog(at) gmail(dot)com to claim yesterday's book, FRENCH KISS. Yay - CONGRATS!!!

Thanks to everyone who has participated in our Take a Break Giveaway this week! It's been so much fun!!

Today is the last day, and I have a fun book for you!

It's called EMILY GOLDBERG LEARNS TO SALSA



"Emily is a Jewish girl from the suburbs of New York, end of story. Her mother has family in Puerto Rico, but Emily has no contact with them--until she's forced to go to the Caribbean for her grandmother's funeral. Pampered Emily wants nothing to do with her Puerto Rican family--until a very special person shows her that uncovering her roots is like discovering a secret part of her own heart."

Booklist has this to say, "Without heavy messages, Ostow draws on her own half-Jewish, half-Puerto Rican roots to tell a moving story that has a solid plotline and plenty of family secrets--past and present--as it opens up issues of tradition, feminism, friendship, and loyalty."

I've never been to the Caribbean, but oh would I love to go about now! Someone I know at work just got back from a scuba diving trip. She said it was beautiful weather - sunny and 80 degrees. Ahhhhhh...
