Can you believe school starts again in a week and a half? Of course, down south, school's already in session, but here in New York, school starts after Labor Day. I spent the weekend buying school supplies and going back to school clothes shopping with my kids. That was definitely my favorite part of returning to school as a teenager: the clothes sales!
No, I take that back. My favorite part was looking forward to seeing the boys I hadn't seen all summer.
One of my funnest high school memories is the very first day. I was dreading seeing the boy who had followed me around for most of eighth grade, so not eager for another year of being pestered by the twerp. Surprise! Ninth grade started and the former twerp had lost the braces and shot up six inches over the summer. Wow! He could follow me around any time!
Today I'm giving away Fly on the Wall by e. lockhart. The main character, Gretchen, hates her school and doesn't fit in. The boys there confuse her to the point of obsession. If only she could follow them around school unseen ...
Win my book and you can find out how Gretchen gets her wish. Just enter a comment. Plus! You get a bonus, second entry if you link to our blog from yours! Just let us know where you've linked us in your comment. Emily will announce the winner tomorrow and kick off her own book giveaway. Good luck!
